Easily manage with SD-WAN

  • The SD-WAN solution provides centralized monitoring and analysis support. On each SD-WAN tunnel and site, measure the performance of the application against the required metrics. These metrics are reported to the SD-WAN controller. Based on the configured traffic steering rules and reporting metrics, the controller can identify anomalies in the network. Therefore, users can modify business-oriented rules to improve application performance. Analysis support can be used to predict potential policy changes or recommend changes to users based on real-time data.

    SD-WAN solutions typically have a single management platform. In addition to monitoring functions, this platform is also used for automatic configuration of SD-WAN devices and programming of SD-WAN tunnels. Adding SD-WAN functionality to the site means starting the SD-WAN device on the site and connecting it to the centralized controller using the Internet. The device automatically retrieves images, configuration and flow control rules from the controller.

    With a single platform of management, you can upgrade multiple devices or change policies. SD-WAN no longer requires any trained IT staff to configure and monitor each site. The IT team can create profile profiles that define policies and can configure multiple devices or sites using the same template. Zero-touch configuration in SD-WAN speeds up and simplifies site deployment and management.

    Cloud-based SD-WAN gateways are flexible and scalable. Users do not need to perform all services, they can instantiate on-demand network services, such as security or firewalls, from the SD-WAN controller, and also need to redesign the data center. Enterprises can use any COTS server and build SD-WAN virtual edge devices. Then, configure services and policies for these devices by using a centralized SD-WAN controller.
