Managed SD-WAN from iomart delivers low latency, high bandwidth connections between branch locations, data centres, public cloud and SaaS.
Our Managed SD-WAN service is a Silver Peak Unity EdgeConnect SD-WAN edge platform that we install, maintain, and manage round the clock.
By constantly detecting changing conditions and using a combination of transport mediums- including broadband internet, MLPS & 4G/LTE, businesses can ensure the highest quality experience for their users, delivering robust application delivery and crystal clear voice across physical circuits with up to 10% packet loss.
Get maximum value from SD-WAN instantly with a predictable and manageable cost.
Centralised control for managing and updating policies.
Prioritise traffic. Assign critical applications to low latency circuits and lower priority application (such as YouTube) to low cost circuits.
Guarantee uptime without the need for expensive network equipment. Potential to deliver 60% savings over traditional WAN.
Identify suspicious traffic. Stop unauthorised traffic entering the branch.
Single pane of glass to connect any number of cloud estates.
Create policies that optimise traffic routing for mission-critical applications.
Managed SD-WAN is a secure networking solution that enables customers to outsource the handling of their connectivity to an accredited service provider. It allows an organisation to analyse its traffic to inform key business decisions, improve response times to security risks and deliver a consistent application experience, which ultimately improves user experience and ensures seamless network performance round-the-clock.
Managed SD-WAN is different from Managed WAN as it deploys and operates a Wide Area Network through the cloud as opposed to the public and leased lines utilised by traditional solutions. SD-WAN is a software-driven technology that is managed from a centralised point via cloud-based services for simplified management of critical applications.
Compared to the traditional Managed WAN deployment, SD-WAN delivers improved connectivity as the scalable solution overlays multiple links from various providers for a unified bandwidth provision, boosting performance and application availability.
Managed SD-WAN is not a VPN, although both are secured internet-based solutions that leverage bandwidth to alter performance and connectivity. VPNs are conventionally used for traffic prioritisation and encryption on a small scale, while SD-WAN solutions are ideal for customers that operate at multiple locations and rely on the cloud to access or store data.
SD-WAN is secure when managed by a reliable service provider that utilises best practices. When provided as an integrated solution with these measures in place, SD-WAN eliminates the need to deploy costly security products on top of managing connectivity, while a dedicated team will implement and maintain 24/7 infrastructure monitoring & management.
