Software Defined Wide Area Networking

A new approach to network connectivity

The newest capability in the world of WAN (wide area networks), SD-WAN is a cost effective way to manage and optimise your company networks. It is a software based solution that uses low-cost Internet links secured by IPsec VPN to connect your multisite offices.

Why Choose SD-WAN?

IT departments are always under budgetary pressure to find efficiencies, but are expected to manage multiple sites while still ensuring high reliability and security. The growth of bandwidth intensive applications, cloud based services and the high cost of enterprise WAN support, connectivity and expert staff is forcing businesses to search for alternate solutions.

With SD-WAN, your offices are connected securely over cost effective standard Internet links. High reliability is ensured via automatic failovers, load balancing and intelligent path control – all controlled by easy to administer software.
