WAN Migration Doesn’t Have to be Scary.

If the reason you haven’t taken the leap with SD-WAN is that you’ve heard horror stories about data migration, we’re here to tell you that you have nothing to fear.

Whether you are looking to add SD-WAN to your existing structure or scrap your traditional architecture altogether in favor of a software-defined solution, the transition will be seamless.

During the move, all of your current WAN equipment, services and connections will continue to operate as before, meaning there will be no downtime for your network users, which is critical for businesses that rely on 24/7 operations.

While it’s possible for Silver Peak’s EdgeConnect to replace your existing infrastructure, you can also choose to create a virtual WAN overlay that doesn’t require a forklift upgrade of existing routers or infrastructure.

This flexibility allows you to build your WAN optimization solution in way that works for your company’s specifics. It also allows you to add Silver Peak’s physical or virtual appliances whenever and wherever new sites are added to your SD-WAN.

In other words, you don’t have to hire outside engineers because your team can start deployment immediately and migrate at its own pace, without disruption.

EdgeConnect’s virtual overlay also enables you to mix and match third-party providers, centralizing management and administration across the entire WAN.

  • Lower CAPEX AND OPEX.
