SD-WAN

Optimize Your Network

HIGH LEVEL PERFORMANCE FOR CRITICAL APPLICATIONS

EFFICIENTLY MANAGING BANDWIDTH

Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) is a software approach to managing network connectivity that lowers operational costs and improves resource usage for multi-site deployments. This overlay service allows for an optimized WAN that is efficiently using bandwidth and ensuring a high level of performance for critical applications. SD-WAN allows for the ability to adjust aspects of the service in near real-time to meet business needs.

NETWORK AGILITY

Because SD-WAN is cloud-delivered and software-based, it can be quickly adapted to address changing needs, including enabling access to cloud-based services, setting up a new branch or remote offices while dynamically steering all traffic for optimized application as well as data delivery. 

TRAFFIC SEGMENTATION & SECURITY

SD-WAN can be used to create virtual network segments to isolate data, such as Payment Card Industry (PCI) or other sensitive data needs to help ensure data integrity and support audit compliance.

EASE OF DEPLOYMENT  

 SD-WAN supports various deployment options for the edge device, including dedicated hardware, a virtualized appliance, or a hybrid solution. There is no need for a specialized technician to install and configure equipment, which saves time and money.

ASSURED PERFORMANCE

SD-WAN delivers a superior user experience, regardless of location or device. This includes policy-based application prioritization as well as improved application performance and reliability.

AUTOMATION & CONTROL

A centrally located orchestrator automatically monitors all network activity, alerts when there are problems, and enables the remote remediation of issues. Additional features include real-time analytics and reporting that can be used for performance monitoring and troubleshooting.

TWO WAYS TO CONNECT SD-WAN TO YOUR BUSINESS

Fiber

123NET’s Fiber Optic Network is designed to keep your business up and running. With over 4,500 miles of fiber, 123NET is available to deliver dedicated SD-WAN connections to over 200,000 Michigan commercial buildings.

FIXED WIRELESS

123NET’s Fixed Wireless is the quickest way to connect your SD-WAN service for your business. It provides redundancy and a true symmetrical connection within 7-13 days of your business needs.

Packet loss occurs when one or more packets of data traveling across a computer network fail to reach their destination. SD-WAN can detect, measure packet loss and account for it by automatically eliminating congestion.
