What is Connect Cisco SD-WAN?

Making sophisticated, global networks easier to monitor, manage and become more agile.

As your network adapts to meet new demands it’s easy to be overwhelmed by managing and maintaining it. Not to mention the challenge of ever-increasing data traffic and security threats. We’ve created a simple way to give your key sites and people the connections they need to support them in a more dynamic global marketplace.

Connect Cisco SD-WAN is a managed SD-WAN solution* for global networks with sophisticated requirements. It’s the ideal choice as you migrate towards a software-enabled service.

What is Cloud Connect Direct?

A business-grade private WAN connection to leading cloud service providers.

Every business knows about the benefits of cloud computing but getting set-up can still be a daunting journey with a myriad of providers and services to navigate. Cloud Connect Direct makes it easier and gives a consistent and secure connection to all the benefits the cloud has to offer.

By enabling you to connect directly from our global network using the latest Software Defined Network (SDN) technology, you can be on-net with your preferred providers and Software as a Service (SaaS) in a faster and more reliable way. Direct private WAN connectivity also means your sites appear as on-net sites on your MPLS network, making everything safer and easier to manage.

Cloud Direct Connect was developed to remove the risks associated with cloud-based services, and we’ll ensure your move to the cloud is smooth, cost-efficient, and low-risk. All this without the headache of managing multiple suppliers and physical infrastructure. 

How does Cloud Connect Direct work?

Cloud computing has the potential to transform the way you do business – but not all connections are equal.

Cloud Connect Direct connections can range from 50mb to 2Gb and don’t require any additional access, CPE, or physical connectivity. There are no complicated internet breakouts, routing, DNS changes or firewalls. We manage the service the same way we do our core network, giving you more time to focus on business priorities.

It also lets you build on your network, using our infrastructure to go from testing and development to rolling out cloud-based applications and services faster and with greater security.

And you’ll keep a lid on costs. Cloud Connect Direct is more predictable and cost-effective than buying, configuring, and supporting security for multiple breakouts over the internet. We’ll handle the nitty gritty like managing the connection hour-by-hour. You’ll get performance information at your fingertips. 

Cloud Connect Direct features

We’re committed to delivering the best cloud connectivity solutions* on the market. Cloud Connect Direct lets you:

  • Access cloud providers directly from your own private network
  • Give people a great experience with a low latency private connection, fully managed by us
  • Get up and running quickly when we connect the service to your MPLS IP VPN in days
  • Stay flexible and add users and offices when you need them, redesigning your connections quickly
  • Go global with our connectivity for different cloud providers worldwide
  • Stay secure and control where your data goes on its way from A to B
  • Reduce vendor management costs with a single service provider
