In today’s world, business applications no longer only exist in data centers; Many enterprise-level applications now run in the cloud. Because of this, pure MPLS connectivity in WAN networks is now being augmented or completely replaced by broadband. Since the software-defined WAN architecture allows organizations to utilize broadband instead of MPLS, huge cost savings are offered. Moving towards a virtualized WAN infrastructure also offers the following benefits:
SD-WAN Offers Greater Flexibility
An SD-WAN architecture replaces your hardware appliances with software while still providing connectivity between your corporate locations, cloud providers, and data centers. Traditional MPLS and point-to-point connections are be replaced by your own choice of connectivity, such as broadband, DSL, or LTE. With this flexibility, you can choose the best solution to fit your business’ IT budget and goals.
For businesses that are not entirely ready to transition to a fully virtualized architecture, a hybrid WAN architecture may be the right choice. Our hybrid WAN solutions allow businesses to transition to a SD-WAN architecture and their own pace. With a hybrid WAN architecture, organizations can still utilize their existing MPLS connection, allowing them to transition to a fully virtualized architecture at their own pace.
By working with our team, we’ll examine your existing infrastructure and help you identify the most cost-effective sources of connectivity. From there, we’ll design a multi-faceted plan to help you seamlessly transition to a fully virtualized WAN.
Increased Visibility, Control and Security
Both of our hybrid WAN and SD-WAN solutions are backed by Silver Peak Systems top-rated software and hardware. Along with our virtualized WAN solutions, our customers also have access to a full-suite of tools to help monitor the activity and performance of your WAN.
With all of our WAN solutions, you can expect corporate-level security of your data with AES-256 bit accelerated IPsec encryption. You can also expect:
- Detailed WAN monitoring and usage reporting for each remote site, and all Internet traffic
- Dynamic traffic prioritization and control
- Full usage of redundant WAN connections at key locations
- Consolidation of Internet traffic into regional hubs, allowing for increased overall security by centralizing firewalls

Easier Deployment & Network Management While Increasing Scalability
One of the most powerful advantages of a virtualized WAN architecture is the ability to deploy additional sites within your WAN in an instant, with no technical expertise needed. All policies are delivered through a cloud management portal and can either be pushed to all appliances on the network or only a subset of them. It’s entirely up to you.
This unprecedented ease of deployment and management allows businesses to not only save huge amounts of money in overhead costs, but also increases the scalability of your organization’s network. What once required hardware and personal on-site technical support can now be accomplished with a few clicks and keystrokes.
Dramatically Reduced Operational Costs
The all-broadband-based WAN allows you to replace your expensive MPLS connection and choose a connectivity solution that fits your network’s needs and business’ budget. Based on connection type, many of our smaller to medium sized clients take advantage of four to five figure yearly savings. However, it is not uncommon for our enterprise WAN clients with larger sites in their network to see six figure annual savings in comparison to a full MPLS-connected WAN.
