SD-WAN: What’s the Best Model for My Business?
Does using Internet facing circuits instead of private circuits sound intimidating? It doesn’t have to. Your business requires a robust communications and data network for its mission critical applications and services. Traditionally that has been accomplished by connecting private sites with MPLS or other private circuits.
SD-WAN provides solutions that not only meet or exceed those offered by traditional WAN technologies, but can provide additional capabilities, such as redundancy, application acceleration, dynamic bandwidth to large cloud providers, and more.

Why Choose SD WAN?
SD-WAN allows companies to utilize multiple Internet circuits, balance the load across them, and deliver a solid quality of experience. Aggregating the Internet circuits allows for large amounts of bandwidth, while securely connecting to additional private locations. Additional sites can be added in very short order once Internet access is acquired. What’s not to like—fast deployment, redundancy, secure connections, and solid quality of experience?
Businesses appreciate the cost associated with Internet circuits but worry about security if transmitting sensitive data. SD-WAN provides secure connections between sites and reduced complexities – a benefit of as-a-Service solutions!
Quality of Experience:
SD-WAN solutions can provide prioritization to the mission critical applications your business demands. Typically, providers choose the best circuit based on real-time statistics giving priority to video, voice, and other business applications. SD-WAN solutions optimize the traffic, reducing overall latency, jitter and response times, and accelerate the applications themselves.
SD-WAN solutions can combine your MPLS and Internet connections, so they don’t sit idle.
Do you utilize or plan to utilize other cloud services, such as AWS, Azure or Google? Many SD-WAN providers connect directly to many of these cloud providers. Also, there are options that allow bandwidth to grow dynamically as your cloud needs change.
Network Function Virtualization (NFV):
We can also provide partnerships with companies that can virtualize out many network functions, such as firewalls, VPNs, load balancing, application acceleration, etc.
SD-WAN is becoming the mainstream choice for many organizations. Elev8 Cloud Technologies partners with the world’s leading SD-WAN providers, and can address concerns about security, redundancy, quality of experience, and more.
