As technology and connectivity evolves, managed WAN has become a vital component in every IT leader’s armoury. Despite IP-VPN being an ideal solution for many businesses for years, a trend to SD- WAN is evolving. The transition between platforms is often motivated by evolving demands, a change in cloud strategy or the need to gain more visibility of the underlying network.
We take a consultative approach with both IP-VPN and SD-WAN, ensuring implementation of a WAN solution is driven by your business requirements and that its carried out seamlessly. With digitisation continuing to define the way we do business, the need for reliable, flexible, high-performance networks will only grow. The right WAN could be the key to thriving in this digital age.
Our WAN offering includes:
Complete visibility of the network
Intelligent decision-making with a view of the entire estate
Respond to business needs
Roll out policies and protocols
Near zero-trust provisioning
Remove expensive routing hardware
Potential cost savings
Improved network performance
An IP-VPN connects multiple Local Area Networks (LANs) to one another through routers and Virtual Private Networks (VPNs). It’s commonly used for connecting organisations with multiple sites or offices and has long been the go-to technology for IT, voice and data networking infrastructure. IP-VPNs mostly rely on Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS), which provides resilient and efficient network traffic flow.
SD-WAN combines different traditional WAN technologies, like MPLS and broadband connections. This creates a single, seamless view of the network no matter what transport type is used, empowering organisations to implement real time changes to bandwidth allocation and create cost efficiencies. It also allows organisations to connect all of their offices to a central network in the cloud, increasing control and flexibility.
