MPLS vs SD-WAN
Many businesses that require the security and performance of a private WAN have built hybrid WAN architectures that combine traditional MPLS-based networks with readily available options like dedicated Internet. While this solves for any-to-any connectivity, it can compromise performance and security, as well as increase costs and complexity due to capital outlay, internal resources and vendor management.
As demand for cloud applications and services continues to grow, enterprises are re-examining their WAN strategies and architectures to optimize business efficiencies, protect critical data and enhance the user experience across public, private and cloud paths. SD-WAN decouples network intelligence and configuration from physical connections and hardware (via an abstracted layer) to create a scalable, centrally managed virtual voice and data WAN that connects distributed branches and remote locations regardless of connection type, access point or carrier.
Simplify Network Management
Converge voice, data and video applications on the same IP backbone and use existing hardware and available access types to connect locations. Now you can reduce capital investment, lower provisioning time and simplify technology migration. There are no manual switches to engage or monitor, plus a centralized portal that offers deep visibility. Automatic updates and upgrades ensure no downtime or business interruptions.
Keep Critical Data Safe
Your customers want ubiquitous access from anywhere, and it’s your job to keep data safe and secure. Now you don’t have to choose. A secure abstracted overlay creates a virtual private network on top of existing connection points. All network traffic is encrypted over public or private paths, for security in a borderless environment.
Increase Efficiency and Resiliency
Determine the most effective way to dynamically route traffic to multiple locations. Business policies automatically prioritize and de-prioritize traffic, making better use of bandwidth to enhance application performance and overall user experience. What’s more, dual active links provide redundant and/or diverse connections at each site, increasing network resiliency.
With rapid site deployment and standardized low-touch provisioning, you’ll hit the ground running while transferring any capital outlay risk, expensive architecture build and maintenance to Windstream Wholesale. When you’re ready to grow, the solution scales seamlessly to accommodate new sites with easily activated circuits to meet your customers’ ongoing business needs.
