How SD-WAN Works:
SD-WAN technology encapsulates your traffic within tunnels. In some cases the connection occurs from an on-premise router, running across multiple ISP paths, to core routing clusters. These tunnels efficiently and reliably move your traffic to and from the Internet, while providing your adaptation system with end-to-end visibility and control of each circuit.
Constant monitoring measures circuit performance in both directions, evaluating traffic flows from your applications, and adapts to changing conditions in real time based on algorithms and alarm thresholds.
- Intelligent Load-Balancing across multiple connections from different providers.
- Adds QoS capability to commodity Internet.
- Moves VoIP calls between circuits without dropping calls.
What You Get with SD-WAN
High Quality and VoIP VoIP calls stay connected even when circuits fail or experience packet loss, latency, jitter, or congestion.
Enables VoIP and other Cloud applications over low-cost connections Experience high quality that is typically associated with more traditional private-line technologies.
Eliminates slow performance and outages with continuous monitoring of ISP circuits and uses that information to automatically direct traffic to its best connection.
Protection Prevents businesses from harmful outages and poor application performance.
Why You Need SD-WAN
- Lower complexity
- Centralized management
- Centralized policy control
- Utilize multiple connection types (no more MPLS carrier lock-in!)
- Scalable & Agile
- Full visibility into network utilization
- Enhances security
- Improves performance
- Cost reduction
- Optimize cloud architecture; ready on-ramps to Azure/AWS/Google
7 Questions to Ask
- Do you have mission-critical applications in the Cloud? If not, do you plan on migrating them to the Cloud in the next 12 to 24 months?
- Do you use VoIP? If so, are you using a Hosted PBX or SIP trunking? Are these services provisioned “over the top” of public Internet connections?
- Have you experienced multiple outages with your current ISP?
- Have intermittent performance issues, such as latency, jitter, or packet loss, on your ISP connection negatively affected your business?
- Do you have any compliance requirements to have limited Internet downtime?
- How are you currently addressing an Internet circuit failure in your Business Continuity plan?
Do you need a simple way to use multiple providers during outages or service degradations?
