Do you need help with multiple locations?
WHAT IS SD-WAN? SD-WAN INCREASES NETWORK AGILITY AND REDUCES COST FOR MULTIPLE LOCATIONS. Organizations operating in multiple geographic locations require employees, clients, and vendors to function efficiently in a single reliable network. Wide area networks (WANs) empower remote stakeholders to communicate and collaborate securely under one network, as if located within the same four walls. The introduction of cheap bandwidth has significantly changed WAN technology. MPLS, VPLS, Broadband, FTTC, xDSL, fiber, copper EFM, 3G or 4G, and point-to-point: All serve a specific purpose for organizations today, and each has strengths and weaknesses based upon an organization’s geographic and IT infrastructure.
With SD-WAN there may be multiple network carriers used across multiple locations. Allowing network changes to be made much easier. An SD-WAN’s single console and uniform software deployment make it possible to monitor network and application performance at any point in the network. With greater carrier choice and uniform hardware, SD-WAN evens out the cost differences between locations. Replace high-cost MPLS/private bandwidth with low-cost internet connections. Respond in real-time to network performance and route around issues. Easy to deploy and maintain. MPLS-like performance of real-time and important applications (QOS). Application-level analytics.
If your business wants more from its current network, Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) is a highly scalable packet-switched network solution that increases traffic performance in high usage networks. MPLS assigns data packets with specific labels, thus routing data through virtual paths between nodes rather than endpoints. The results? Enhanced bandwidth use, reduced network congestion and an overall better user experience. MPLS supports DSL, TI/E1, Frame Relay and ATM.
Virtual Private Networks (VPN) use encryption and tunneling to extend your company’s private network across a public network, like the Internet. By utilizing the right VPN solution, your business can operate between regional offices and remote/roaming users as if directly connected to your private network. VPNs scale easily from 64k to 100G and can combine with your voice network to reduce costs and reduce the number of circuits you need to manage. VPN solutions are often cheaper than MPLS and are an excellent choice for data recovery because they can quickly reroute traffic to a secure data recovery sites during emergencies.
