What is SD-WAN?

Based on the principles of Software defined networking (SDN), SD-WAN allows Network administrators to programmatically initialise, control, change, and manage Network behaviour dynamically. It’s essentially decoupling the infrastructure from the service using software-definition and network functions virtualisation (NFV).

However you wish to connect your services, SD-WAN provides the flexibility to utilise multiple access technologies, which enables the agility and resilience required in today’s ever-changing world.

Our SD-WAN

Exponential-e's SD-WAN architecture is a fully managed, hybrid, low-latency private WAN / Internet service with any-to-any connectivity to a number of services - be it Cloud, branch sites, SaaS or more.

Our SDN solutions integrate seamlessly with our homogenous layer 2 VPLS Network architecture to apply fast and secure network management all the way from a user's device right across the Network to your data centre and Cloud infrastructure.

Overcome your connectivity challenges with SD-WAN

A number of different factors are contributing to the demand for SD-WAN:

01
Network complexity: Diverse WAN connectivity is causing complex legacy environments delivered via a multiple providers, which is having a detrimental impact on performance and cost.
02
Lack of scalability and reliability: Increased bandwidth usage due to new sites and a growing number of internet-based applications is causing operational complexity.
03
Data protection and privacy: Organisational data traffic is steadily migrating from the enterprise branch to the internet. You need the reassurance that data and Network access are fully secure.
04
Cost efficiencies and service delivery: Organisations are seeking cost efficiencies and they prioritise evolving service delivery requirements, especially as they adopt SaaS, IaaS, and other cloud services.
05
Security concerns and compliance requirements: Mobile users, distributed sites, and cloud applications require trusted access, consistent security policies and simplified configuration.

FAQ

What is SD-WAN?

Based on the principles of Software Defined Networking (SDN), SD-WAN allows network administrators to programmatically initialise, control and dynamically manage network behaviour.

This is achieved by decoupling the infrastructure from the service using software definition and Network Function Virtualisation (NFV), creating a highly scalable service that’s truly transport agnostic.

Does SD-WAN replace VPN?

Our SD-WAN platform leverages functionality that you could link to a VPN in order to provide a secure overlay network. It does not directly replace any remote access VPN service. However, we can offer RAS solutions alongside our SD-WAN platform.
