The pandemic has changed the way we conduct business. It inundated the world with terms like the “new normal” and “remote work”. In the blink of an eye, the world tapped into corporate networks and applications that mainly reside in the cloud from their home-based remote offices. This forced companies to consider their response to the pandemic and how it would shape their future.
The health crisis accelerated a “digital transformation” and required organizations to be flexible with their wide area networking connection, which would allow them to steer the cloud-hosted application traffic directly to the cloud securely. In today’s fast-paced world, it becomes quite crucial for IT Teams to find a secure network that is scalable, economical, and easy to implement.
At Sona, we always strive to provide cutting-edge technology services to ensure our clients are connected on a secure and robust network. With our industry experience and knowledge, we met the rigorous demands of the market by introducing a Software Defined Wide Area Network (popularly known as “SD-WAN”). Being a transformative technology, SD-WAN simplifies IT infrastructure control and management, by delivering virtual WAN architecture that securely connects users to their applications.
Wide-Area network (WAN) is quite essential as your business grows. Compared to SD-WAN, Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) can be expensive and time-consuming to implement across multiple locations. Whereas SD-WAN provides more reliable real-time information on security events and reduces any complexities that may occur.
Sona has adopted the progressive network of SD-WAN because we are committed to providing new and advanced services to any company that requires is, for their efficiency. Here are 4 reasons why we recommend businesses to adopt SD-WAN:
- Cost Saving – SD-Wan will make it easier to move non-critical WAN traffic from private MPLS links onto lower-cost broadband internet.
- Agility – It gives network engineers the agility to respond quickly to requests for new WAN services and make changes to existing services. The tasks that took hours or days to accomplish will require only minutes with SD-WAN! This is what we mean by agility.
- Performance – SD-Wan also offers faster business connections by allowing for multiple high-bandwidth WAN links simultaneously, as well as for dual service providers – naturally, when bonding different types of connections together, performance is optimized.
- Speed of Deployment – Setting up network technology and equipment at a new branch office is much easier with SD-WAN than with traditional routers and gateways.
SD-WAN has gone mainstream and has been adopted by many enterprises worldwide. It is a strong network that will guarantee continued business operation. This makes SD-WAN the next generation of networks.
