5 Ways SD-WAN Can Give Your Business Network an Edge
SD-WAN (Software-Defined Wide Area Network) technology is redefining the reliability of network performance, giving companies of all sizes assured quality of service and the peace of mind to know that their business-critical traffic (like voice, video and virtual desktop apps) will always be top priority.
Get the power to control and manage your networks so the applications and services you choose have top priority over any other Internet traffic. SD-WAN can provide five key benefits to your business:
1. Assure reliable network performance
Degraded communications performance reduces productivity to a crawl and drains IT resources as they work to troubleshoot network problems. SD-WAN provides reliable hosted unified communications application performance by auto-detecting the fastest network path to optimize connectivity and speed.
2. Simplify your network management
IT staff can monitor and control your WAN from a centralized cloud-based view, whether you have one, two, or hundreds of locations. The simplified configuration options of most SD-WAN admin portals give IT the visibility and flexibility they need, while still delivering increased capacity, automatic updates and automatic (or custom) business policies.
3. Rapid branch deployment
Does your company have multiple branches? Adding new locations is fast and easy with a streamlined SD-WAN deployment model, allowing you to mobilize new branches in minutes, minimize the need for IT staff and reduce costly on-premises hardware at each office.
4. Reduce your costs
An SD-WAN can contribute to significant cost savings by optimizing lower cost broadband Internet, allowing most companies to scale back the use of multiprotocol label switching and other traditional circuits.
5. Increase your network security
SD-WAN continuously monitor and measure network traffic, giving your IT department deep visibility into your WAN and allowing them to quickly pinpoint a security attack. And with less hardware to take care of and no manual configurations that could put it at risk, SD-WAN offer more secured home and branch networks.
