Using video, online collaboration tools, and other bandwidth-intensive cloud applications doesn’t have to degrade your real-time business communications or call quality. SmartWAN, our SD-WAN solution, can ensure that you get voice quality without compromising on privacy and control, even on your bring-your-own-broadband or hybrid network.
- SD-WAN solution purposed for UCaaS
- Flexible, reliable, and scalable
- WAN optimization on any network
What is SD-WAN? And why is using it for communications revolutionary?
SD-WAN stands for software defined WAN. WAN stands for wide-area network, and SD-WAN uses software to create a network over large geographic distances. When you use SD-WAN optimization for UCaaS, you can route and prioritize data over your business’s data networks—including private circuits, commercial broadband lines, and even 4G LTE connections—to ensure better communication quality.
Abundant failovers. Abundant availability.
The best solutions applying SD-WAN to UCaaS allow users to pick from multiple networks. Our WAN optimization solution can help smooth out bumps in service and keep calls from dropping by creating fail-safes on multiple broadband connections. If single provider outages occur, service is seamlessly transferred through another route for maximum uptime reliability. It can even use wireless to ensure your communications always have bandwidth.
Flexible and affordable hybrid networks when you need them
With SmartWAN you can structure a hybrid network among multiple locations and get QoS regardless of whether you’re connecting via broadband or wireless. Our SD-WAN hybrid solutions maximize QoS while maintaining the control and privacy you get with a managed MPLS network.
Active, smarter monitoring and traffic prioritization
Our WAN solutions automatically route traffic to the available network path. It can recognize 2,000+ application routes and prioritize traffic by application. This dynamic, multipath optimization delivers the highest quality experience. And because SD-WAN optimization technology constantly searches for the best possible path for real-time communication data to take, communications are always properly prioritized. It’s like getting bigger bandwidth but only when you have traffic congestion.
Video, video, video: Reducing costs on your favorite data-heavy functions
Video communications, like video conferencing, can use a tremendous amount of bandwidth and require a degree of prioritization and specialized handling to perform well over a given network. Many businesses have moved their video and voice capabilities—along with countless other mission-critical apps and services—to the cloud. By using the cloud with SD-WAN technology, businesses get the best of both worlds: quality communications with fewer expenses.
