SD-WAN

SD-Wan services are the latest technology that offers a cost effective alternative to MPLS network. Enterprises have also used SD WAN as an efficient back up to the traditional MPLS service. As more applications move to the Cloud, network performance becomes a major obstacle. Delivering a quality experience for your customers and employees becomes paramount. Take advantage of WAN optimization which is the core of the SD Wan services. The Zamm Advisors team can provide solutions to meet your network performance challenges.

SD-WAN The Simple, Strategic, & Secure Solution

About Software Defined WAN

SD-WAN is becoming the mainstream choice for many organizations. Does using Internet facing circuits instead of private circuits sound intimidating? It doesn’t have to. Zamm partners with the world’s leading SD-WAN providers, and can address concerns about security, redundancy, quality of experience, and more.

Why Choose SD-WAN

  • Best overall value and functionality
  • Agility and speed when adding locations
  • Redundancy, scalability and fault tolerance
  • Quality of experience for critical applications
  • Simplification of operations
  • Connectivity to other cloud-based solutions
  • Dynamic bandwidth
  • Cost effective upgrades
  • Support whenever you need it
  • Application acceleration and optimization

SD-WAN Features

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. Additional sites can be added in very short order once Internet access is acquired. What’s not to like—fast deployment, redundancy, secure connections, and solid quality of experience?

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!

Quality of Experience – 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. SD-WAN solutions optimize the traffic, reducing overall latency, jitter and response times, and accelerate the applications themselves.

SD-WAN solutions can combine your MPLS and Internet connections, so they don’t sit idle.

Network Function Virtualization – 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.

Reduce MPLS Costs By 80%

Fisher Case Study

Enterprise WAN solutions and architectures have changed significantly over the last decade, from basic hub-and-spoke topologies based on services such as leased lines or frame relay/asynchronous transfer mode to fully meshed MPLS-based WAN services, and now to hybrid WAN solutions typically based on Internet and MPLS services. These hybrid Internet-MPLS WAN services were originally introduced into the enterprise WAN to reduce WAN expense (often for resiliency only). However, three emerging factors — new application requirements, the increased use of Internet and the adoption of public cloud services — are driving demand to fully utilize Internet and MPLS connections simultaneously, as one integrated WAN.

The consequence of the evolution to a hybrid WAN is that branch office WAN has evolved dramatically — from merely employing a WAN router 10 years ago to now also including various types of appliances such as firewalls, intrusion prevention, Internet Protocol (IP) VPN concentrators, WAN path controllers and WAN optimization controllers. Increasing adoption of various cloud services, such as on-premise private cloud, public cloud, hosted private cloud and SaaS, in enterprise IT has resulted in a hybrid IT architecture within the enterprise network infrastructure. Enterprises need to meet the demand for agile, cost-effective, reliable and high performing business, networks connecting the hybrid IT environment. Network managers now find branch office network solutions are increasingly complex and inflexible, as well as costly, to deploy and manage. In addition, it is equally complex and difficult to obtain visibility into application performance across the hybrid WAN, and to ensure that applications receive appropriate prioritization and are forwarded over an appropriate WAN path.

Enterprises need to meet the demand for agile, cost-effective, reliable and high performing business, networks connecting the hybrid IT environment. Therefore, SD-WAN provides a mix of public internet and private circuits to provide organizations with more network uptime, cost reduction, secure connection from branch locations to applications in enterprise data center and dynamic multi-path optimization for enterprise grade performance and scalability.
