        Australian SD-WAN

        Cut out your carrier, simplify branch networking and dramatically reduce costs.

        There is a cost effective, simple, fast and secure alternative to carrier MPLS & Expensive Fibre services available right now.

        It's an SD-WAN or software-defined wide area network.

        There is a very good reason to consider a move to SD-WAN. SD-WAN delivers the ability to leverage technology and processes to transform your business and/or the user experience is critical for the survival of companies as we move into the future.

        The corporate network is facing unprecedented pressure from the growing adoption of cloud, mobility, voice and video applications. And with many organisations spread across multiple location and often different countries, branch office networks are increasingly complex and expensive to scale and secure. SD-WAN delivers a centralised management capability unrivalled by traditional WAN.

        Without change you'll experience escalating carrier costs, poor user outcomes, security risks and a management headache.

        SD-WAN for SMEs

        Previously SD-WAN was expensive and only sat in the domain of Corporate & Enterprise markets.

        Now a SD-WAN for SMEs is available at a price point that puts SD-WAN in reach of any size business. We deploy the WAN-Edge device to your site, the SD-WAN provides the Cloud based orchestration to manage your network and Cloud applications.

        Deploy using zero touch provisioning with the cloud based management orchestrator. You can manage the network at your branch offices and data centres remotely and in real time. Deploy critical applications and manage your cloud applications to your branch offices, right down to the device level via the Cloud Based orchestrator in real time.

        Key benefits of SD-WAN

        Security

        Most SD-WAN platforms provide in-built security, and the ability of SD-WAN to integrate with other Next Generation Cloud Firewall software cloud applications seamlessly, enables network administrators to build multiple levels of security. The SD-WAN solution provides for Cloud or on prem security devices so you network security can be assured. No more wondering if the small branch office is impacting on your network security or having to visit the site to deploy critical applications.

        Application Management

        SD-WAN enables application-based forwarding as well as Quality of Service assurance. This is important in today’s digital era where different cloud based applications have distinct requirements from the WAN. The ability of SD-WAN to centrally and seamlessly configure these considerations is key to deploying software-as-a-service applications.

        You dont need to be on site for any application distribution or upgrades. It's all done remotely through the SD-WAN orchestrator.

        SD-WAN remote orchestration

        Multilink, multipath

        Multilink, multipath technology takes two or more standard internet links and combines them into one. The main advantage is network stability and resilience and it means you can create a secure WAN over cheap Internet technologies. In addition, it’s independent of wired networks such as fibre or wireless networks like 4G and 5G.

        Transport independence

        SD-WAN can create a wide area network over different transport technologies including wireless, Ethernet, and fibre.

        Centralised management = service automation

        SD-WAN controllers and orchestrators can be integrated with IT service management tools, to enable faster managing and fixing of business critical issues.

        Who needs SD-WAN?

        • Businesses in locations where high quality links are not available, and those that need to bond multiple lower quality links to deliver higher bandwidth and avoid mission critical outages.
        • Companies looking to reduce the cost of expensive fibre links by bonding multiple lower cost links e.g. multiple NBN/4G services.
        • MPLS users looking to reduce their costs, increase bandwidth and add functionality
        • Security users looking for more centralised control, security and visibility of their networks.
        sd-wan SIMPLE

        SD-WAN technology allows you to replace expensive carrier-controlled MPLS networks with a public internet-based solution, eliminating unnecessary hardware and leveraging simple, ubiquitous, competitive internet connectivity for rapid deployment and considerable cost savings.

        Think of business-grade outcomes using cheap internet access links.

        Optimising your network - using the internet

        Until recently, the public internet has not been considered an appropriate transport for corporate data because of concerns around reliability and security.

        Fast, stable internet services have now become the norm.

        Infrastructure continues to improve quickly, to the point that many cloud providers deliver critical business services across the public internet reliably and securely.

        If you have a distributed workforce and supply chain, using SD-WAN to integrate the public internet with your corporate network creates more capacity and delivers better user experiences at lower cost. This is extremely suitable in APAC given the lack of pan-regional carriers and homogenous networks.

        By 2024, Gartner expects the number of companies deploying SD-WAN to reach 60% of enterprises. You need a trusted SD-WAN vendor in a crowded market.

        Intelligent path control on SD-WAN

        Your SD-WAN will dynamically load balance across multiple links to deliver high availability and flexible capacity - issues that cripple traditional Telco MPLS networks.

        SD-WAN devices automatically route network packets along the most appropriate links to improve application performance. Demanding workloads like video traffic can be simply prioritised over internet browsing using the orchestration platform. Changing network performance – as a result of internal company dynamics, or external internet congestion or outages - can be quickly identified and managed around.

        In traditional MPLS environments, virtually all traffic from remote sites traverse the MPLS network through a central data centre. This includes users connecting to the internet and cloud applications. Unnecessary ‘tromboning’ of data (traffic flows in to the data centre, out to the internet, then back in to the data centre and out to the user) creates additional latency and a poor user experience, often worse than one might experience working from home. SD-WAN overcomes this by automatically routing traffic directly through the most appropriate path and handling security closer to the edge.

        The most common questions on our Australian SD-WAN

        You may have heard about SD-WAN and might be wondering why it’s so popular with Australian businesses.

        A Software-defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) is a virtual WAN architecture that allows businesses to use any combination of transport services – including MPLS, LTE and broadband internet services – to securely connect users to applications. An SD-WAN uses a centralised control function to securely and intelligently direct traffic across the WAN.

        This increases application performance and delivers a high-quality user experience, resulting in increased business productivity, agility and reduced costs for IT.

        Here are the Top 9 questions we get from Australian Corporate, Enterprise and SME clients investigating SD-WAN (and their answers, which we’ve learned from experience).

        Can SD-WAN make our internet faster?

        Yes, because a true SD-WAN like VeloCloud bonds multiple services together, it gives you access to all of the available bandwidth if that is required. For example, if you had 2 x 100/40 NBN services running (from different carriers) with the right VeloCloud SD-WAN subscription, you could potentially be getting close to 200Mbps download speeds and close to 80Mbps upload speeds.

        Will SD-WAN save us money?

        In most cases yes. Firstly, due to the redundancy an SD-WAN offers you won’t have down time in the event one of your data links drops out or goes down. Secondly instead of having to pay for an expensive carrier fibre link costing $000s, you can bond multiple lower cost links and get a similar result. For example, think about the cost of 2 or 3 NBN services bonded together vs the cost of one fibre internet service.

        Can SD-WAN make our internet more reliable?

        Yes, because a SD-WAN can have up to four different internet links (most commonly two data links and a 4G connection are used), if any one link drops out the SD-WAN automatically routes all traffic over the fastest available link.

        Can we put multiple NBN connections on a SD-WAN?

        Yes, the VeloCloud SD-WAN edge devices from CommsChoice can take up to 4 X NBN services plus a 4/5G connection.

        But won’t that affect the IP address the traffic is routing over?

        No, because the IP address used by the SD-WAN is issued by the Cloud Orchestrator, it doesn’t matter which path the data packet travels over. It will always use the IP Address of the SD-WAN, even over a 4G link.

        Could we use SD-WAN to get better-quality links in our offices where high-quality fibre is not available?

        Yes. It’s very easy to bond multiple lower cost links such as NBN TC4 (using different NBN Carriers and 4G for additional redundancy). This will allow you to build a very high bandwidth but cost-effective solution.

        How do we manage the SD-WAN?

        SD-WAN provides the user with an orchestration layer giving full visibility of their network and granular information on traffic, application use & steering, security management and control of their capacity. Users can simply click through their site map from network level down to the device layer at any connected site.

        What is dynamic traffic routing on a SD-WAN?

        Dynamic traffic routing by the packet is managed by the SD-WAN. The SD-WAN will choose the fastest path for the data packet. You can even unplug a connection during a VoIP phone call and the callers will not notice any change, the call would simply continue over the next available path.

        How do you manage security on a SD-WAN?

        The VeloCloud has a built-in security layer and management capability but you can always add in a next generation Cloud Firewall like a ZScaler subscription for additional security. SD-WAN allows businesses to leverage simple, ubiquitous, competitive internet connectivity for rapid deployment and considerable savings. It is suitable for any organisation that wants to reduce costs, improve performance, gain flexibility – all without losing functionality.
