What is Connect Meraki SD-WAN?

A simple one-box branch solution to support your digital future.

Supporting your branches as you work towards your digital future presents a lot of challenges. You must deliver advanced LAN, WAN, and wireless LAN services while coping with increased bandwidth demands from complex applications - and do all this securely at scale.

Connect Meraki SD-WAN brings together the key components of any future branch solution, joining together LAN, wireless LAN, SD-WAN, and security in one box. It’s simple to set up and manage, gives you central visibility of your network through an online management portal, and lets you tap into the power of new network technology – including the ability to meet ever-increasing bandwidth demand.

Why invest in Meraki SD-WAN technology?

Combining Cisco technology with BT expertise to bring you the best of both worlds.

As market leaders in global network solutions, we have the expertise to design, implement, maintain, and optimise your SD-WAN solution so you can make the most of new opportunities and technologies.

The most exciting feature of our Meraki SD-WAN service is that it lets you use two different access methods, utilising different technologies like MPLS, business-grade internet, and consumer-grade internet. So you can benefit from an active / active set up rather than a traditional active / backup and get much greater bandwidth capability too.

You can also prioritise your critical applications to send them down the most appropriate route, and the software will manage that for you. For example, if you have speed issues on one route it can intelligently redirect traffic through another to maintain consistent performance.

The service is fully-managed, which means we’ll design, build, and operate it all for you. With us, setting up a new site with a range of complex services is child’s play.
