Wavenet launches SD-WAN services

Wavenet’s new SD-WAN service provides a solution to challenges faced by many businesses today. As organisations continue to leverage the cloud, IT professionals are concluding that traditional WAN’s are not sufficiently agile to support their cloud services.

Bandwidth demands increase as businesses grow and leverage services like O365, Salesforce, MS Teams and other Cloud UC solutions to facilitate collaboration. Issues arise when applications are backhauled to a Headquarters’ hub and centralised internet breakout becomes a bottleneck. QoS is affected, calls may drop and video conferencing unusable, as data is unable to traverse the network in a timely manner. Some businesses seek to prevent this by introducing a second hub to load-balance traffic, however this is a costly solution as it not only involves expensive hardware that is only used as the network gets congested, but also requires unnecessary infrastructure & connectivity and does not deliver a positive return on investment.

Wavnet’s Silver Peak’s SD-WAN services ease network management by steering application traffic dynamically across the most appropriate path, based on business intent.

Utilising Silver Peak software to determine the most effective way to steer applications. Through Centralised Orchestration and Zero-Touch Provisioning as well as self-learning algorithms; network administration is dramatically simplified, while latency is reduced, end-user Quality of Experience is protected and TCO WAN costs can be reduced by up to 90%. By simplifying the network and enabling it to self-drive maximises productivity for both end-users and resellers alike.

Antony Black (pictured), Director of Wholesale, commented “We can reduce the Total Cost of Ownership of the WANs by simplifying management and provisioning while enabling intelligent use of cost-effective network transports, for example traditional broadband or 4G/5G, delivering localised Internet break-out, while maintaining security and enhancing application performance.”
