Run business-critical application over Airacom’s high capacity, low latency WAN services with uncontended high bandwidth access.
SD-WAN’s offer higher capacity bandwidth, centralised management, network visibility and multiple connection types.
Quicker to deploy, days, not weeks and offering longer-term savings when compared to traditional WAN and MPLS.
Deliver your apps faster via the cloud with the highest levels of application performance and security.
Neutralise malicious threats or malware in real-time with rock-solid security across your multisite.
What is SD-WAN?
A Software-defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) is a virtual WAN architecture that allows enterprises to leverage any combination of transport services – including MPLS, LTE and broadband internet services to securely connect users to applications.
How does an SD-WAN benefit my business?
Times have changed, and companies are using the cloud and subscribing to software-as-a-service (SaaS). While users traditionally connected back to the corporate data centre to access business apps (backhauling traffic), they are now better serviced by accessing many of those same apps in the cloud. Removing latency, while not impairing app performance.
Why switch to Airacom's advanced network services?
We can help you take control of your communications with agile multi-site network solutions based on SD-WAN, traditional Multiprotocol and Switching (MPLS), or a hybrid of both. Our solutions allow companies to expand and contract networks when required while benefiting from a cost-effective, high-quality service for all business-critical applications.
Four key features
Achieving SD-WAN ROIs.
- SD-WAN use case
- 1. Hardware replacement
- 2. Traffic control and visibility
- 3. Network segmentation
- 4. Integration of additional services
Building a use case
1. Hardware replacement
A key consideration here, is understand if by removing the hardware you also find carrier service levels are reduced. Note most carriers use edge termination devices to proactively monitor the connection. Removing this may leave them reactive only to service issues.
2. Traffic control and visibiity.
The central orchestration platform should allow dynamic distribution of traffic across multiple WAN connections based on the needs of applications as well as on rules using IP addresses and specific circuits. It must also be circuit-agnostic allowing Internet, MPLS and other flavours of the circuit to be used.
3. Network segmentation.
It should automate the creation of wide-area segments, allowing the easy separation of business units or different application traffic types for increasing security, performance and compliance. Don’t assume all services are equal in this area – understand the use and application beyond the vendor’s feature name.
4. Integration of additional services.
It should support service chaining by integrating with WAN optimisation controllers, firewalls, web gateways, cloud providers and security devices and solutions.
