SD-WAN: The Ideal Solution to Manage Bandwidth Efficiently Across Your Company

Given the popularity of streaming video, the widespread use of cloud applications, and the explosion in AI and big data, businesses of all types have seen their bandwidth needs explode. Right now, all of your traffic probably utilizes one high-cost link and one backup. All traffic going to one destination takes the same path, regardless of what kind of traffic it is. Software-defined Wide Area Networks (SD-WAN) however, offer a solution to organizations of all sizes suffering from lagging Internet blues.

Whether you want an SD-WAN provider, or you want to manage it yourself, we can put all the components together for you. BCM One guides our clients through the planning and design stages. We’re also right there through the deployment and management phases. We can create a full solution for your organization, from finding an SD-WAN provider to setting up new circuits to managing payment for all these new services.

Why SD-WAN is Better

The modern business has far higher bandwidth requirements than it did even a few years ago thanks to hungry applications like video conferencing. New bandwidth requirements have made costs skyrocket. Now the old topologies are especially unattractive, but many organizations are unaware that there are better cheaper alternatives.

Gartner Incorporated, the world’s leading IT research company, estimates that by 2023, 30% of all enterprises will use SD-WAN technology. This is because SD-WAN offers a lower total cost of ownership, more efficient use of bandwidth, more availability, carrier agnosticism, increased security, application visibility and control, and unparalleled flexibility. Businesses now have a choice beyond just MPLS with a VPN backup.
