As our trusted advisor of 6 years, Vision96 has seen all shapes and sizes of SD-WAN technology. Not only do they have their finger on the pulse of hybrid networking, but they also understand our business, key applications, how we communicate and need to be connected, which is why we relied on them to run the evaluation and proof of concept for this project. Vision96 simplified SD-WAN for us and quickly paired it down to qualified providers, resulting in significant cost savings.
SD-WAN allows companies to utilize multiple Internet circuits, balance the load across them, and deliver a solid quality of experience. Aggregating the Internet circuits allows for large amounts of bandwidth, while securely connecting to additional private locations.
SD-WAN solutions can provide prioritization to the mission critical applications your business demands. Typically, providers choose the best circuit based on real-time statistics giving priority to video, voice, and other business applications.
We can also provide partnerships with companies that can virtualize out many network functions, such as firewalls, VPNs, load balancing, application acceleration, etc.
Do you utilize or plan to utilize other cloud services, such as AWS, Azure or Google? Many SD-WAN providers connect directly to many of these cloud providers. Also, there are options that allow bandwidth to grow dynamically as your cloud needs change.
Businesses appreciate the cost associated with Internet circuits, but worry about security if transmitting sensitive data. SD-WAN provides secure connections between sites and reduced complexities – a benefit of as-a-Service solutions!
SD-WAN solutions can combine your MPLS and Internet connections, so they don’t sit idle. SD-WAN solutions optimize the traffic, reducing overall latency, jitter and response times, and accelerate the applications themselves.
