Businesses today are driven by mobile workforces and a need to rely on data and applications in the cloud. IT needs to adapt to this new reality, and simplifying the infrastructure is a big step in the right direction. One network with one security framework for all users and all applications will make your IT leaner and more agile.
Wide Area Networks are a critical component of today’s business infrastructure, but WANs erratic performance frustrates users, especially for low-latency applications like VoIP calling, video conferencing, video streaming, and virtualised applications and desktops. WAN capacity can also be expensive and difficult to expand, manage and troubleshoot.
SD-WAN products address these problems. As a replacement for traditional technologies, such as MPLS and VPN, it applies software-defined networking (SDN) concepts to WAN connections. Unlike traditional WANs, SD-WAN delivers increased network agility and cost reduction by directing traffic from network hardware to individual applications for improved app performance as well as quality user experiences over geographically dispersed locations such as branch offices, corporate data centres, and on cloud platforms.
Four Big Reasons Cisco Meraki SD-WAN Makes Sense
Imagine a network that evolved in line with the needs of your business; saved more of your employees time and applied the same zero-risk approach to security as you do– all while reducing your business’ carbon footprint and overall spend. Take a look at our free infographic and discover how a WAN upgrade could save you and your business more than just money.
Why SD-WAN for your business?
Avoid double charges for internet break-out by using cost-effective local access and increase employee productivity with zero-touch provisioning and centralised management.
Define prioritisation, routing and security for each application’s traffic flow. Real-time modifications mean you can accelerate delivery time and evolve your network in line with your needs.
With security embedded by default, SD-WAN takes a zero-risk approach. The ability to interconnect multiple WAN links and define how the failover will intervene, provides a higher level of business continuity.
Versatile devices make it possible for you to combine multiple functions and consolidate infrastructures.
Gartner estimates that by 2020 more than 50% of WAN edge infrastructure refresh initiatives will be based on SD-WAN versus traditional routers.
