Cut out your carrier, simplify branch networking and dramatically reduce costs.
Would you believe us if we said that there is a cost effective, simple, yet fast and secure alternative to carrier MPLS available today?
SD-WAN is the answer to that question.
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 sites and often different countries, branch networks are increasingly complex and expensive to scale and secure.
Without change - this leads to escalating carrier costs, poor user outcomes, security risks and a management headache.
Who needs SD-WAN?
- Businesses in locations where high quality links are not available, and needing 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 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 Software Defined WAN (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.
