09 Jan You don’t have to rely on routers anymore.
SD-WAN is the new way to move cyber traffic. No more costly hardware or manual configuration—just smart and automated routing.
So, what is SD-WAN? If you read our blog you’ve heard the acronym by now, but let’s review. SD-WAN stands for “software-defined wide-area network.” It’s a technology that divides network traffic across enterprise-level or “wide area networks” (WAN). This tech operates using “software-defined networking” (SDN) procedures, which are designed to find the most effective way to route traffic throughout branch offices and across network devices. Additionally, SD-WAN offers greater flexibility, visibility, scalability, and security because it’s cloud-delivered.
In other words: anything a router can do, SD-WAN can do better (and it can do more). Expensive branch routers don’t belong in a modern workplace; they place unnecessary limitations on your office network and they cannot accommodate cloud applications. Veracity offers Velocloud SD-WAN because it operates without constraints to deliver high volumes of network traffic.
When you let Veracity host your SD-WAN Gateway, your team gets full advantage of a high-tech software base and the Velocloud. Our SD-WAN operates within the Veracity network and integrates seamlessly alongside our suite of cloud applications. This streamlined and efficiency-based approach to cyber traffic looks nothing like your old branch router, which often demands expensive maintenance from specialized engineers and a completely separate network architecture. Talk about needy tech.
If you’re anything like us, or thousands of other growing companies, you don’t have time for anything but SD-WAN. Velocloud SD-WAN is the outcome-driven networking system of the future, founded on two key principles: automation and intelligence. As you can learn on the Velocloud site, “under the umbrella of outcome-driven networking” there are a few unique functions that “change the way IT teams will manage organizational networks.” The functions are intelligent routing and outcome-driven automation.
Having these features means that system administrators “no longer have to manually configure” individual redistribution points or “nodes.” Instead, within the VeloCloud, users can select final outcomes one time and the built-in intelligence learns and implements every change to achieve an end result. For an example of this function, visit the Velocloud blog.
Now that you know what SD-WAN means, you have to ask yourself: what does SD-WAN mean to my business? The answer is productivity. When you save time and money on your network provider, that investment goes back into your brand. Invest in growth and expansion. Invest in SD-WAN.
