Branch Office Deployment
SD-WAN: Connecting thousands of sites, effortlessly.
To interconnect branch offices, traditional WAN technologies require costly links, multiple boxes per site, and complicated network architectures. An SD-WAN takes the hub and the spoke out of your WAN, providing seamless branch office connectivity to any number of network edges, interconnected by a virtual network, orchestrated from a single point.
It would be so simple with five locations…
Stitching together multiple WAN technologies to connect branch offices in a private network is not for the faint-of-heart.
It’s not too arduous for a handful of sites — to research, purchase, and maintain the devices and equipment and addresses and applications and configurations and backup links. But hundreds of these? Thousands? Real businesses include locations of varied physical structures, larger offices, smaller offices, showroom booths, construction trailers, pop‐up retail mall kiosks, some permanent, some temporary, some stationary, some roaming.
Workers at every site expect predictable network access. And now your customers also do — and it might just be beneficial to your business to provide it. If only you could find a manageable way to do so.
Infrastructure to serve everyone, everywhere.
Yesterday the Hybrid WAN allowed you to leverage private and broadband connections to your branch offices, and 4G LTE for the roving, or occasionally also the stationary, ones.
Today a cloud-delivered SD-WAN helps you remove the complexity: the profusion of boxes and convoluted configurations. An SD-WAN allows you to orchestrate business, QoS and security policies, as well as application access, regardless of where the worker or the application is, or what physical devices or networks may connect them at the moment of access. Flexible and location-independent, the SD-WAN steers traffic directly between source and destination — mobile-worker or remote office, to SaaS server — allocating bandwidth and prioritizing traffic to provide the appropriate end-user experience.
