SD-WAN Puts Pressure on Businesses to Secure Reliable Private Networks


Telecommunication companies are doing their bit to create a communications framework that allows businesses easier and faster communication with their clients. With the acquisition of VeloCloud, VMware places competitors under pressure where latest developments are concerned. One of these developments is the implementation of SD-WAN in networks. This new addition to the Wider Area Network will peak the interests of big businesses, creating some healthy competition.

What Does SD-WAN Do Differently?

First of all, it's important to know what WAN is. The Wider Area Network allows businesses to communicate without the need to all be in the same business. This is good news for businesses who have multiple offices around the state, country, or even world. SD-WAN takes this to the next level by providing this WAN with a software-defined approach. What this does, is make the network more reliable, faster, and without all the errors and bugs typically associated with regular WANs. What sets this technology apart, is that it uses the cloud to implement its strategy as opposed to hardware.

The Integration of IP VPN and MPLS

SD-WAN takes existing technology and allows it to flourish. Thanks to networks moving away from fixed network operations, business owners have had their first bite of flexible private networks. The integration of IP VPN and.or MPLS in the daily communication needs of the business ensures that many locations are able to communicate effectively off the same network. A network technician with experience in an IP VPN service or MPLS will be able to recommend the best mix of either or both. With SD-WAN, the network will receive a cutting-edge boost that will set it apart from the rest.

The Move to the Cloud

On-site mass storage facilities and server rooms are slowly becoming a thing of the past as the benefits of the cloud become evident. With the right package, businesses are to run their entire operation from the cloud. As far as safety is concerned, multiple encryption options and additional security features make these online vaults impenetrable. With the communications side also up on the cloud, businesses hardly have to rely on on-site technology to run their business, which is why SD-WAN is fast becoming the new buzz phrase in the tech world.

The digital age is providing business owners with invaluable opportunities to run their operations effortlessly. Cloud computing and the proper integration of communications will undoubtedly be a major player in differentiating one business from the next. This is especially true for those who can't afford downtime and networking hassles.
