SD-WAN for multiple locations, SaaS and real-time traffic
Software-Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN) is a transformational approach to simplify branch office networking and assure optimal application performance across the WAN. It suits any business that fits into any of the below descriptions:
- Business is running one or more SaaS applications, like SalesForce, Zendesk, Office 365 or Unified Communications solutions
- Business has a secondary backup Internet connection that sits idle in case of an outage
- Business is running a real-time traffic (voice or video) across the WAN
- Business has limited networking resources in its IT group to maintain and manage the WAN
- Business has multiple branch locations
In addition, SD-WAN allows you to gain voice service redundancy by leveraging multiple carriers.
SD-WAN for SaaS applications
Many business applications today are moving to the Cloud. On one hand, it leads to increased business efficiency and cost reduction. On the other hand, it creates more real-time traffic that is critical for your business operations. If you’re utilizing Cloud-based business applications, like SalesForce, Zendesk, Office 365, Cloud voice solutions and video conferencing, you need to ensure this traffic is prioritized over other types of traffic.
Backup Internet connection
Most companies will have a secondary Internet connection for when the primary one goes down. Like with insurance services, you are paying for it even though you may not be using it. SD-WAN technology monitors and routes the traffic based on best path possible at all times without manual intervention.
Multiple branch locations
When a company has multiple locations, WAN can be complicated. It involves carrier circuits, Service Level Agreements (SLA), remote office hardware (router/firewall), etc. It can be simplified by adding SD-WAN to your existing network. It will automatically create all the connections and routing to all other locations.
SD-WAN for business communications
LANtelligence partners with VeloCloud to bring you all the benefits of SD-WAN technology listed above plus better Quality of Service (QoS) for their voice and video communication solutions. In a VeloCloud solution, QoS policies by default prioritize voice and video traffic across all Internet circuits, including any combination of MPLS and non-MPLS circuits.
