Cisco SD-WAN/Viptela Consulting and Professional Services

Cisco SD-WANWith more end users, more applications, and more devices challenging your data center infrastructure, your old networks are struggling to keep up (and keep you secure). Additionally, migrating applications to the cloud requires reliable connectivity. Companies find themselves having to pay even more for faster connections and increased bandwidth to accommodate rising demand.

While running transcontinental fiber from one data center to the next is plausible for some large organizations, it’s extremely expensive. Your traditional network approach has become unsustainable in today’s demanding climate.

You need a more robust, flexible, and economical WAN solution.

Experience Improved, Reactionary Connections with the Right SD-WAN Solution

According to Gartner’s recent research:

“by 2020, more than 50 percent of WAN edge infrastructure refresh initiatives will be based on SD-WAN versus traditional routers.”

This software-defined solution routes traffic by application rather than by network interface, enabling your solution to redefine routes in real-time. Through the use of multiple hybrid links with active-active capability, SD-WAN mitigates and solves upstream latency issues caused by:

  • Traffic Congestion

  • Jitter

  • Packet Loss

  • Broken ISP Links

By routing strategically across a spectrum of ISPs, SD-WAN decreases deployment times and increases uptime for your critical applications.
