Today’s Enterprise WAN Challenges

Enterprise IT is constantly driving, evolving, and adapting to keep both business and technology ahead of the key WAN challenges facing business and IT today.

Branch Complexity

Increases in distributed offices, agility demands for existing offices, and the explo- sion in applications and services has made branch offices complex to deploy, upgrade, manage and maintain.

Expensive Bandwidth

Delivering increased bandwidth to meet enterprise application growth is expensive, time consuming and comes with long lead times.

Rigid Architecture

Traditional WAN designs are optimized to backhaul branch traffic to data center applications using closed networks relying on restrictive class of service assignments.

As a VMWare NSX SD-WAN by VeloCloud premier partner and over 19 years of technology experience, WaveSmith’s savvy network engineers partner with your team to explore capabilities in implementing SD-WAN. Our full service approach around SD-WAN, carrier services, and the data center, uniquely enable us to help you reduce costs, improve performance, provide flexibility, and increase security.

What is SD-WAN?

Software-Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN) is a transformational approach to simplify branch office networking and assure optimal application performance.

SD-WAN has its roots in Software-Defined Networking (SDN), the underlying principle of which is to abstract the network hardware and transport characteris- tics from the applications that use the network. Unlike traditional WANs, SD-WAN delivers increased network agility and cost reduction.

SD-WAN solutions provide the software abstraction to create a network overlay and decouple network software services from the underlying hardware.

Key Advantages

Provision branch offices faster with automated zero-touch deployment, simplified configuration, orchestration and on-going monitoring with centralized troubleshooting tools. Simplify branch infrastructure with the ability to insert network services on the branch edge, in the cloud or in the regional and enterprise data centers.

Deliver Hybrid WAN with ease and enable branch offices with ordinary broadband as enterprise-grade WAN. Reduce hardware delivery costs by choosing from deployment options such as virtual machine on a commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) device, virtual machine on an existing x86-based router or a purpose-built VeloCloud Edge device.

Enable multiple links, devices and services to coexist and interoperate with incumbent solutions and make the branch agile. APIs enable integration into various management and reporting systems deployed by enterprises today.

Optimize application performance over Hybrid or Internet links with direct, secure access to enterprise and cloud applications. SD-WAN provides consolidated monitoring and visibility across multiple WAN links and service providers.
