SMEs with multiple business locations rely on lower internet bandwidth to access business-critical applications. IT Staff and the management find it daunting to keep ISP contracts and service terms in check. Each office probably has expensive network appliances, like routers and firewalls, but none of the staff members at these local offices has the expertise or the time to handle them.
Are you facing this hassle at your company too?
This is where SD-WAN comes in handy. It provides secure and reliable connections from branch offices to the central corporate network. Using the software, SD-WAN automatically routes network traffic over multiple connections including Internet Leased Lines / MPLS, 4G wireless, and Broadband
This cost-effective solution benefits SMEs by providing cloud-based internet access to support advanced bandwidth-intense applications and eliminates the need for expensive hardware or private connectivity like MPLS.
Benefits of SD-WAN for Small and Medium Businesses
If your business has multiple branch offices, these are the main reasons why you should consider implementing an SD-WAN solution:
Improved Productivity with Efficient Network Performance
Productive employees are the backbone of any thriving, profitable organization. So making sure members of your team can get online quickly and be as efficient as possible is a must.
SD-WANs intelligent routing guarantees improved network performance. All of your mission-critical applications will be readily available, run smoothly, and offer the best application performance for your team with a fast and responsive user experience.
Businesses can now prioritize their most critical data with SD-WAN and ensure that remote workers are connecting and collaborating faster than ever.
Secure Networks and Data Transmissions without Compromising Efficiency
Many small businesses are securing their data by deploying high-performance security protocols at the corporate headquarters and forcing all network traffic from the branches to flow through it before accessing anything else.
This detour will safeguard the network but it also affects the application performance and your employee’s productivity.
SD-WAN tackles this issue by providing a next-generation firewall that can encrypt data in transit. This allows for enhanced network security at each remote location without compromising efficiency. This solution comprises all network and security functions built into one.
Lower Your Internet Connectivity Costs
The reliability and performance of internet services have led to increased cost per bandwidth usage. Few businesses are left with no choice but to use expensive private-line WAN links.
SD-WAN reduces cost by allowing you to choose the type of connectivity or the combination of networking services that suit your business without compromising data security. By prioritizing bandwidth-intensive applications, you can ensure seamless performance and enhanced security
With the majority of the business transacting online on a daily basis, it’s crucial for companies to stay up and running 24×7. Even an hour of downtime can cause the business to lose revenue and put its reputation at stake.
SD-WAN will definitely help in avoiding such downtimes by enabling connectivity to critical applications and services around the clock. It automatically reroutes network traffic to available connections, constantly monitors and recognizes network issues, and facilitates a seamless transaction between primary and secondary backup connections. It also uses bandwidth from another location if the primary location fails.
Simplify Remote Site Installation And Management
Most SMEs have their specialist IT resources at headquarters and not at branch offices which can be retail stores, medical stores, food chains, logistic outlets, or automobile dealerships. If there is an issue in one of these locations, the experts will have to physically be present in order to assess and resolve the issue.
SD-WAN can help in eliminating this issue as you can easily open new locations, expand and manage infrastructure from the head office without having to travel to branch locations.
SD-WAN’s zero-touch provisioning model makes it easy for managed service providers to ship pre-configured devices to each of your locations. Just plug them in and they’re ready to go. Your corporate IT staff has full access and control over all settings, from routing protocols to security, firewall, and beyond.
SD-WAN allows system administrators to centrally change and mass-deploy any number of configurations with just a few clicks. No expensive flights or hotel rooms are required. It’s that easy.
