And it’s only going to increase with things like virtual reality and ‘connected everything’.
But what if you could meet this demand with a hybrid network that’s part of a dynamic network service?
A hybrid network gives you a mix of private and public network services to balance your performance, service, cost and security needs. These network services have been around for a while, but the speed, prevalence and cost of internet services is driving the expansion of this hybrid approach.
The major change is that the technology to control, manage and secure these hybrid networks is becoming easier and smarter – smart enough to handle all your extra traffic. SD-WAN, for example, gives you dynamic control over the prioritisation of your applications using multiple accesses to your sites.
It’s also worth noting that private networks – in the form of MPLS, Ethernet or optical – still have a role to play, because of their added security and performance.
The internet offers ever-increasing bandwidths at a reducing cost per megabit.
As you try to meet your ever-increasing bandwidth demands, you may be looking to the internet as one of your solutions.
Internet connectivity is a broad term. Business grade and consumer grade internet are very different services. Our business grade internet service is a dedicated solution that gives you high performance and availability with the services support you need. We also offer uncontended internet services, like consumer services, which come with lower levels of service and performance, but also a much lower price.
We can offer the right internet solution for you, wherever you are.
This fully managed, secure solution is delivered using our experience in large scale deployment and application management.
We offer best-of-breed reporting and analytics to improve your SD-WAN visibility and control.
Our managed solution is a great choice as you migrate towards a software-enabled service. It lets you:
And, if needed, our dedicated specialist team can also do the configuration and maintenance of your SD-WAN service in-life.
Connect Meraki SD-WAN brings together the key components of any future branch solution – LAN, wireless LAN, security with SD-WAN.
The SD-WAN capability gives you greater control and helps meet your ever-increasing bandwidth demand. It combines Cisco’s Meraki technology with our management capability, which means:
Agile Connect is our unique SD-WAN solution. It’s ideal for branch solutions, offering fast, simple site set-up, easy control and our added security wrap.
Because it’s an SD-WAN, you can meet additional bandwidth demand and improve the performance of your priority applications.
It’s unique to us because it’s built on, and integrated into, our global network, plus it’s controlled through our portal - the same portal you can use to control your wider network services. It comes already built with regional gateways, hub connectivity, and added security including against cyber attacks. You can control the service yourself, or we can control it for you, and our service wrap will make sure you have a successful solution.
Buying more bandwidth to support your bandwidth-hungry applications is an expensive and not really the best solution. Our Connect Intelligence services can improve the performance of your applications and processes because they:
We partner with the leading providers, such as InfoVista and Riverbed, offering hardware and cloud-based solutions, and we’re the first to launch brand new, flexible commercial models for their services. We also offer the experience and expertise to ensure a successful solution.
