What makes SD-WAN an ideal choice?
Efficiently manage and optimise wide area networks
Irrespective of whether you have a single site or a global network spanning thousands of locations, our SD-WAN solution offers centralised visibility into the health of your WAN.
It also provides you with the ability to control application usage both within and outside your networked sites.
Prioritise critical business traffic
SD-WAN empowers you to direct and prioritise traffic across your network.
It enables your network to instantly prioritise critical applications, intelligently adapting to changing performance conditions.
A scalable model with predictable outcomes
When it comes to setting up new sites, SD-WAN eliminates the need for expensive and time-consuming setup efforts.
By leveraging multiple uplinks, it offers instant connectivity for remote sites, headquarter moves, or remote workers.
Enhanced application performance and user experience
With real-time monitoring and analytics capabilities, SD-WAN ensures predictable application performance while significantly improving the overall user experience.
SD-WAN is made up of several components that work together to provide efficient and flexible network connectivity. These components include:
- The data plane assumes the responsibility of forwarding network traffic and establishing tunnels between various locations.
- The control plane oversees the overall behaviour of the network, encompassing routing and security policies.
- The management plane manages network configuration and administration by gathering information about the network while also generating alerts for potential events.
- The SD-WAN edge serves as a bridge connecting an enterprise's internal network with external networks. It acts as a portal for incoming traffic.
- The controller coordinates and manages all these components to ensure their seamless integration into one cohesive system.
