SD-WAN solutions for secure and simple cloud-based architecture

SD-WAN – or software-defined wide area networking – brings simplicity, security and cost-effectiveness to your architecture.

Content+Cloud’s SD-WAN solutions make it easier for you to manage and optimise your applications, creating greater experiences for your customers and employees.

What is SD-WAN and how does it meet your challenges

Productivity, efficiency, customer satisfaction – these all can be enhanced or damaged by the availability and quality of your services. With more and more business conducted via online applications, this relentless traffic can put your services under strain.

Managing your application performance across multiple locations and with large numbers of devices and users is a complex task. And with so much data flowing through your networks, you have the critical responsibility of navigating the ever-evolving range of cyber threats that target your users.

SD-WAN solutions will help you tackle these problems head on. They help digitally focused organisations such as yours to deliver an optimal service and experience to users. SD-WAN providers will help you deliver higher performance at a lower cost than traditional Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) infrastructure.

How SD-WAN works

SD-WAN is a software-defined virtual WAN architecture that enable you to manage your applications and connect users securely.

It works as a layer that can sit above almost any transport service, such as MPLS, fibre Ethernet or even 4G/5G. The intelligence in the SD-WAN core enhances security and traffic is prioritised to provide a far richer end user experience.

At Content+Cloud we can provide SD-WAN solutions that will get you up and running with an infrastructure that will robustly underpin a first-class user experience. Working with our partner Aryaka, we’ll back this up with a managed service to ensure you get the most from your cloud-based data service.
