As enterprise applications migrate from the corporate data centre to the cloud, network professionals are quickly realising that traditional Wide Area Networks were not architected for such a dynamic, internet based environment. In today’s WAN environment, user’s requirements are increasingly better served by augmenting or even replacing legacy technologies such as MPLS with a much cheaper broadband based WAN – also referred to as a Software Defined WAN (SD-WAN). Gyrocom is proud to partner with Silver Peak Systems and offer customers the flexibility to securely connect users to their applications via the most cost-effective source of connectivity available.
SD-WAN is a specific application of Software Defined Networking (SDN) that is applied to Wide Area Network connections in order to allow organisations to leverage increasingly commoditised broadband connections. This is achieved by abstracting the underlying connections into a single logically defined WAN and separate control plane – all without losing the functionality and security of a traditional WAN. Traditional MPLS can be augmented with lower cost high-speed broadband to deliver a much lower cost Hybrid-WAN to support key initiatives such as digital transformation.
