Your network is the backbone of your business, and we know that keeping it secure and online across multiple locations is a top priority. Software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN) can help you better manage your network. Let’s figure out if this technology is right for your business.
What Can SD-WAN Do for My Business?
SD-WAN can improve visibility into your current network, and give you better control and management. Businesses with multiple branches or complex WANs can benefit from network agility and improved application performance.
- Improve network management. SD-WAN centralizes the monitoring and management of your network to give you better visibility and provide the optimal route for traffic.
- Easily provision branch offices. SD-WAN simplifies network configuration and setup, making it easier and faster to connect branch offices.
- Augment your existing MPLS. You can create a hybrid WAN that leverages both your private network and the public internet with SD-WAN to increase network redundancy.
Can SD-WAN Improve Application Performance?
SD-WAN enables you to optimize your application performance by monitoring all your connections and automatically routing traffic over the best path based on real-time conditions. Real-time tasks like video and voice can receive priority.
Can SD-WAN Connect My Business to the Cloud?
Some SD-WAN solutions are ideal for building secure and flexible connections to your critical cloud applications and platforms such as Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS).
What about VoIP?
SD-WAN comes with Quality of Service tools that help to improve call quality by identifying and prioritizing VoIP traffic. Businesses see better use of their cloud-based voice services with SD-WAN’s redundancy for multiple connections.
