How does your company access its business applications?
Most enterprise businesses rely on the Internet to support remote workers and branch offices, essentially turning their WAN into an Internet-based VPN.
As corporations migrate their applications from data centers to the cloud, many networking technicians have realized that traditional WANs are not set up to for a dynamic, Internet-based environment. This can create a negative experience for the user when backhauling traffic to the cloud from their satellite branches and their headquarters.
Historically, the Internet has been a blend of networks. Though connectivity has become easier, security and reliability continue to be a problem when meeting the requirements of a business. Additionally, bandwidth-intensive business applications can affect its performance.
Security, reliability, and networking costs should be the top concerns for your businesses IT department, and Software-Defined Wide Area Networks (SD-WANs) can help overcome these limitations.
6 SD-WAN Benefits:
- Multi-carrier connectivity and redundancy increase system reliability by 90%.
- Integrated multi-line WAN acceleration, compression, and encryption can increase bandwidth by ten times without the additional cost.
- Failover for applications based on WAN metrics prevents packet loss, packet delay, and jitter. This helps maximize users experience especially if they’re in a call or service center.
- Works with dynamic rotating IP addresses, which helps reduce monthly costs.
- Centrally manage services to propagate network configuration and application policies.
- Utilize data prioritization with a class of service, quality of service, traffic shaping, and inbound/outbound policies to enhance VOIP and video services.
Overcome your connectivity dilemmas by giving your network managers the confidence they need to integrate business applications with SD-WANs easily.
