SDWAN: Why Companies Are Implementing This Solution
Compared to traditional WAN and MPLS solutions,
This technology is capable of connecting enterprise networks such as branch offices or data centers across large geographic areas. Simple, cost-effective, and a flexible alternative to traditional WAN solutions,
Benefits of SDWAN
When deciding to implement
When provisioning a new network, SDWAN proves itself through flexibility. Traditional networks generally take 60 to 120 days to deploy. The configuration of SDWAN is simple, adaptable, and rapid. The set up of SDWAN has been noted as reducing setup times by 80%. Enterprises considering SDWAN deployment should look to providers that can have them globally connected in the shortest amount of time.
No Manual Configuration
SDWAN does not require manual configurations as wells as an on site technician. Traditional solutions not only need these things, which are expensive and time consuming, but they cause many companies downtime and outages. As mentioned above, SDWAN can be rapidly deployed, making it easy for a company to adjust their bandwidth as their requirements evolve.
This year it’s estimated that global information security spending is to exceed $124 billion due to privacy concerns. With SDWAN, companies can benefit from stronger security because of its built in security protocols. The encryption capabilities of SDWAN ensure that only authorized users of the network can access and view confidential information. Also, SDWAN allows a company to notify the network on traffic designation, which keeps high-risk traffic from entering the network.
Higher Quality Transfers
When compared to traditional WAN and MPLS, SDWAN offers higher quality transfers by diverting traffic to alternative routes, which in turn reduces congestion points and packet loss. Capable of supporting a dynamic path selection, SDWAN has the ability to deliver higher performance while handling critical workloads. Along with higher performance, this solution has higher reliability and higher quality. For many CIOs, it’s becoming apparent that their legacy networks are no longer suitable for handling the demands of modern connectivity. SDWAN has many stepping up their game for this new “marketplace.”
From on site or in the cloud to mission critical or peripheral, application performance and the productivity of your business can only be as good as your network. For IT Managers and CIOs, it is imperative to build a network that is designed to withstand modern data and application delivery. With the right SDWAN solution, a company could benefit greatly.
