SD-WAN

Software-Defined Wide Area Network

 

The Network Box SD-WAN optimizes network traffic, and allows organizations to easily connect between head office and branch offices, data centres, cloud services/applications; regardless of network environment and connection type.

 

Network Box provides SD-WAN services and operates SD-WAN networks using our secure Network Box 5 platform. With full support for Internet, leased lines, and Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) circuits, Network Box can build an SD-WAN optimized for each customer's requirements. Solutions are dynamic and scriptable, supporting complex business logic. By integrating commodity Internet links rather than expensive leased line or MPLS circuits, Network Box can help drive down costs and provide a fast, optimized network experience.

 

SD-WAN services are provided by on-premises Network Box devices, virtual cloud, and multi-tenanted SaaS services.

 

 

Network Box SD-WAN offers:

  • Resilience - Link monitoring and automatic switching between alternative network paths.
  • Quality of service - Fair sharing of limited bandwidth, including prioritization of application traffic. This prioritization and sharing typically may be either on a single link or across multiple network paths.
  • Security - Encryption, authentication, and protection against tampering of network traffic.
  • Application optimization - Caching, compression, latency optimization, and other such mechanisms to improve performance.
  • Flexible Deployment options - On-premises, virtual in the cloud, multi-tenanted Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), or hybrid combinations.
  • Administration and troubleshooting - Centralized administration of the SD-WAN, including configuration, link status monitoring, alerting, and reporting.
  • Online traffic engineering - Visibility and dynamic control of the SD-WAN.
