nets360 Extended Secure SD-WAN

Managed SD-WAN Solution

Companies across industries rapidly accelerated their digital transformations in response to the global pandemic. Now, enterprises are under immense pressure to adopt next-gen technologies such as software-defined wide area networks (SD-WANs) to meet the needs of distributed networks, applications, and a hybrid workforce.

What Is SD-WAN?

SD-WAN is a software-defined approach to transforming the WAN that helps accelerate the adoption of cloud-based applications and other digital transformation initiatives. SD-WAN creates overlay tunnels that can handle a variety of connections and dynamically move traffic over the best transport available. It can provide both redundancy and much more capacity using lower-cost links. When time-to-installation and time-to-delivery are considered, SD-WAN solutions cost significantly less than MPLS overall. 

SD-WAN provides end-to-end visibility and centralized management to help organizations manage their networks more efficiently. SD-WAN products can be managed directly by enterprises or embedded in a managed service offering. The best SD-WAN solutions offer converged networking and security managed by one centralized management system, allowing sites to be brought on quickly without requiring networking or security experts to be on-site for installation.

    Why Switch to SD-WAN? The Benefits of Migrating from MPLS to SD-WAN with nets360

    In today’s dynamic business environment, companies are continually seeking ways to enhance their network infrastructure while reducing costs. SD-WAN presents a powerful alternative to traditional MPLS solutions by not only increasing flexibility and cost efficiency but also simplifying overall network management. Here are the reasons why switching to an SD-WAN solution from nets360 could be a wise decision for your business:

    Cost Efficiency: SD-WAN utilizes more cost-effective internet connections, thus reducing the high expenses typically associated with MPLS connections. This allows your company to optimize budgets and allocate resources elsewhere.

    Increased Flexibility and Scalability: SD-WAN enables rapid adaptation to your business’s changing needs, whether by adding new locations or scaling existing operations. The technology seamlessly adjusts, supporting both cloud-based and on-premise applications.

    Optimized Performance: Through intelligent path selection and application prioritization, SD-WAN enhances the performance of your cloud services and on-site applications, significantly reducing latency.

    Enhanced Resilience: With multiple active paths, SD-WAN can automatically select the best route for traffic and seamlessly switch between connections to minimize downtime.

    Comprehensive Management from a Single Source: A key advantage of SD-WAN with nets360 is that we provide not just the technology but also complete management of the internet connection. As your single point of contact, we manage all aspects of your internet providers. This simplifies communication and increases efficiency by giving you a unified solution that covers all your network needs.

    Choosing SD-WAN from nets360 means opting for a future-proof network solution that not only improves operational efficiency but also ensures optimal performance and cost-effectiveness. Let’s collaborate to develop a customized solution that perfectly fits your business requirements.

    It's easy to get started.

    The integration and conversion to a managed service solution from nets360 takes place in several steps during which you are actively guided.
