In today’s hyper-connected world, it’s more crucial than ever for businesses to have a strong communications and data network to operate on. And with the increasingly open, fast-paced and cloud-based tech sphere, traditional hardware connections often don’t cut it anymore. Enter SD-WAN. Using an Internet- and cloud-based network rather than proprietary hardware circuits, SD-WAN (software-defined wide area network) builds a powerful, up-to-date system to support your mission-critical applications and services at peak performance. MDL Technology partners with the leading SD-WAN providers to find the ideal network solution formulated for your unique business objectives. So what sets SD-WAN a notch above the rest? Here are four key incentives to join the SD-WAN club.
Optimize your bandwidth
For your business to operate effectively, you need bandwidth that can keep up. SD-WAN networks have the ability to aggregate bandwidth and use multiple Internet circuits to balance the data load so the system can handle larger amounts of bandwidth. The result is a more efficient and organized network that allows hassle-free addition of new locations and faster deployment. In other words, you can get the most out of your bandwidth and focus your energy on the work itself.
Enhance your network security
Security is of utmost importance for the savvy modern business. SD-WAN solutions utilize secure connections to safely transmit sensitive data. With reduced complexity and no dependence on physical hardware, SD-WAN ensures that your data is always protected.
Boost efficiency and productivity
Businesses are comprised of a lot of moving parts, and these elements need to coordinate for the company to work as efficiently — and successfully — as possible. SD-WAN systems work with prioritization and productivity in mind — your mission-critical applications have the number one slot. By optimizing traffic, focusing on the applications you need for your key business operations and accelerating the applications themselves, SD-WAN reduces latency and response times and keeps your business operating smoothly. With SD-WAN behind the scenes streamlining operations, you can focus on your main business goals.
Increase flexibility and adaptability
Who wants to be tied down, especially when it comes to your business? With SD-WAN, that’s no longer an issue. You have more options and flexibility without being tied to cumbersome hardware, and the Internet-based network facilitates greater scalability, fault tolerance, and easier cost-effective upgrades. You can connect directly to a range of cloud providers, including AWS, Azure, Google and more. In addition, the dynamic, adaptable bandwidth can develop alongside your changing cloud needs. In short, your business doesn’t need any cords — literal or figurative — anymore preventing it from adapting to the fast-paced market and changing business objectives.
