SD-WAN provides a stress-free way to utilize multiple Internet providers to build a more robust Internet connection that is ideal for supporting today’s VoIP and Cloud applications.
How SD-WAN Works:
SD-WAN technology encapsulates your traffic within tunnels. In some cases the connection occurs from an on-premise router, running across multiple ISP paths, to core routing clusters. These tunnels efficiently and reliably move your traffic to and from the Internet, while providing your adaptation system with end-to-end visibility and control of each circuit.
Constant monitoring measures circuit performance in both directions, evaluating traffic flows from your applications, and adapts to changing conditions in real time based on algorithms and alarm thresholds.
- Intelligent Load-Balancing across multiple connections from different providers.
- Adds QoS capability to commodity Internet.
- Moves VoIP calls between circuits without dropping calls.
What You Get with SD-WAN
High Quality and VoIP VoIP calls stay connected even when circuits fail or experience packet loss, latency, jitter, or congestion.
Enables VoIP and other Cloud applications over low-cost connections Experience high quality that is typically associated with more traditional private-line technologies.
Eliminates slow performance and outages with continuous monitoring of ISP circuits and uses that information to automatically direct traffic to its best connection.
Protection Prevents businesses from harmful outages and poor application performance.
Why You Need SD-WAN
- Coax or DSL (commodity Internet)
- Hosted VoIP
- Virtual Desktop
- Any other key applications hosted in the Cloud
- Single Internet link today
- Primary/Backup architecture (no load-balancing or QoS)
- Compliancy requirements for 2+ connections
- Experienced a recent Internet outage or degradation that impacted business applications
7 Questions to Ask
- Do you have mission-critical applications in the Cloud? If not, do you plan on migrating them to the Cloud in the next 12 to 24 months?
- Do you use VoIP? If so, are you using a Hosted PBX or SIP trunking? Are these services provisioned “over the top” of public Internet connections?
- Have you experienced multiple outages with your current ISP?
- Have intermittent performance issues, such as latency, jitter, or packet loss, on your ISP connection negatively affected your business?
- Do you have any compliance requirements to have limited Internet downtime?
- How are you currently addressing an Internet circuit failure in your Business Continuity plan?
Do you need a simple way to use multiple providers during outages or service degradations?
