What is SD-WAN?
A Software-Defined Wide Area Network is a virtual WAN architecture that allows organisations to connect users to applications using any combination of connectivity including Cloud, MPLS, LTE, 5G, and fibre broadband internet services.
Traditional WANs based on conventional routers were never designed for the cloud. They typically require backhauling all traffic, including cloud-destined traffic, from branch offices to a hub or headquarters data centre. SD-WAN offers benefits in agility, scalability, security and cost.
Public SD-WAN is an agile, secure, lower cost technology which delivers the agility that companies require in a cloud computing era, without the significant investment required for Private SD-WAN.
Public SD-WAN utilises the public cloud which means the responsibility for hosting, securing and maintaining the data centre is outsourced. MobileCorp offers a managed service for design, migration, and maintenance.
Private SD-WAN can be the best option for companies who already have expensive data centres to leverage, who have internal IT resource available to manage the network, and who are looking for an increased level of security and control.
MobileCorp offers a private SD-WAN managed service to leverage the benefits of flexibility, guaranteed resource availability, strong security, and regulatory compliance, and in some cases, cost savings.
Hybrid SD-WAN is a new middle ground option that until recently did not exist. The hybrid is a reference for how SD-WAN is designed to augment, not necessarily replace, MPLS circuits, with a less expensive broadband internet.
MobileCorp has extensive experience and expertise in developing hybrid SD-WAN solutions. Ask us for references.
