Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN)

Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN) is a specific application of software-defined networking (SDN) technology applied to WAN connections, which are used to connect enterprise networks, including distributed networks. It is a revolutionary approach to simplify branch office networking and assure optimal application performance. Unlike traditional WANs, SD-WAN technology delivers increased network agility and cost reduction. The benefits for an enterprise network applying SD-WAN technology contain:

Increased Flexibility

SD-WAN enables enterprise networks to manage multiple types of Internet connections, from MPLS to broadband to LTE. Complex distributed network configurations connecting thousands of branch offices together can be deployed instantly whether broadband is available at each location. With SD-WAN technology branch offices can be provisioned, managed, and monitored centrally, which gives network administrators increased flexibility to control over their WAN and remote devices using a single interface.

Better Application Performance

SD-WAN technology aggregates at least two links together to create a single bonded link, which is faster than either one individually. Q-Balancer SD-WAN provides remote/branch offices with enough bandwidth by bonding all available WAN links to compose overall bandwidth, which is appropriate for single applications.

Reduced Complexity

Routing protocols don't react to changing network circumstances such as packet loss, excessive jitter, or congested links; routing protocol metrics simply don't include that sort of information in their best path calculations. Measurement techniques like IP SLA can artificially change metrics or otherwise override the normal behavior of a routing protocol, but these are tricky tools to configure. SD-WAN technology handles those inconvenient tasks for an enterprise in an automated way, routing and rerouting traffic dynamically based on the real time state of the network. The complexity will be reduced as SD-WAN takes care most of it. With SD-WAN technology, an enterprise should be able to rely more on broadband and less on leased-line.

Lower Cost

In enterprise networks with traditional WANs, some costly technologies, such as leased line, are integrated to deliver the end-to-end connection. SD-WAN takes active measurements between endpoints to learn whether the broadband link is capable of carrying, say, voice or video traffic reliably. As a result, enterprises should be able to invest more in low-cost broadband links and so as to minimize the size of their expensive private links.

Limitless Business Opportunity

Wherever your business goes we are right there for you. As long as your business has a demand for undisrupted network continuity, we will be there for you. Q-Balancer SD-WAN can be deployed in across various networks, from company networks, site-to-site, to M2M.
