Current network management inhibits true growth

The complexities, disparate systems, and unlimited configuration permutations inherent in managing a corporate network can slow down expansion and business-enablement. Transitioning to a proactive management platform that truly understands and accounts for the demands placed on IT teams, eliminating manual activities to power a shift to strategic activities gives enterprise the tools they need to succeed.

 

Manual Configurations

Every network process requires numerous-clicks to ensure that the desired result will occur, and when multiplied by each process and device on which changes need to be implemented, becomes a huge time investment.

Inefficient Cloud Access

Determining link performance and assigning critical traffic to the correct link while determining the correct policy combination on a real-time basis can impede seamless access to cloud applications.

All Network Traffic Treated Equally

Not all traffic is equal, yet many organizations treat them as if they are, resulting in delivery delays, compromised quality, and insecure systems. Prioritization needs to be performed automatically and information separated from dissimilar traffic.

Dependence on Routers

Routing is not a router-only activity and the dependence on these devices simply because it’s always been a staple is backward, not forward looking. Elevating routing and optimizing what it can do is imperative.


The traditional WAN is conceptually flawed

Traditional WAN design is based on multiple devices stacked in the branch office with siloed management and disparate WAN links connecting them.

 

Expensive Bandwidth

Limited bandwidth of expensive private/MPLS circuits inhibits rollout and impacts performance of applications. At the same time, private/MPLS WAN redundancy is complex to deploy and manage.

Datacenter Dependent

With no direct access to cloud resources from the branch with the archaic hub and spoke network design of MPLS solutions, the traffic is backhauled through the enterprise datacenter with heavy performance penalties.

 

Unpredictable Application Performance

Application traffic over Internet links lacks SLAs for predictable performance. Every change in the application quality of service requires manual changes across the branches and the datacenter.

Complex Infrastructure

Traditional WAN includes multitude of single-function devices and appliances connecting via different WAN links. This infrastructure sprawl causes complexity of branch IT management and leads to reliability penalties.


SD-WAN makes branch networks better

A software centric approach capable of being delivered prepackaged on economical MikroTik platforms without sacrificing performance.

 

Virtual WAN

Deliver a network overlay with multiple links from different service providers to form a unified pool of bandwidth. Provide superior performance and high availability for applications independent of the underlying transport links.

Cloud-Optimized

Enterprise-grade performance is assured even when traffic is going to cloud applications. Incremental overlay design abstracts software layer from the underlying hardware layer and the physical transport to make an elastic network.

Simplified Branch Services

SD-WAN provides insertion of network services whether on the branch customer premise equipment (CPE), in the cloud, or in regional and enterprise data centers. Software-defined flexibility with automation and business-policy abstraction simplifies complex configurations of traffic routing and policy definitions.

Pay-As-You-Grow Model

SD-WAN gives enterprises the ability to deploy a wide area network on-premise or cloud and ease the services insertion with application-aware forwarding to enterprise datacenter or cloud. The cloud-based management enables pay-as-you-grow subscription model for cost efficiency.
