Customized SD-WAN Configurations Make Any Network Never Down
Deploying WANworX is like taking out an insurance plan on your connections. With supplemental links and connections, any network can become Never Down instantly.
For instance, let’s say a business operates from a primary headquarters and three additional offices. These facilities will often be connected with single-threaded MPLS links. While this configuration works and it offers security, it’s lacking in redundancy and therefore risks traffic congestion and downtime from carrier outages.
WANworX products are offered as both premises-based appliances and virtual instances that create a reliable, end-to-end secure SD-WAN solution. With every WANworX installation, we add in network intelligence controllers at strategic points on the network, including the public cloud. Then we route traffic over all available links at all times, with the option to prioritize specific routes for certain applications, if necessary. If one or more links are lost for any reason, traffic is uninterrupted because it is automatically rerouted to flow over other available links. You can duplicate specific traffic, say voice or virtual desktop sessions, and send it over multiple links for a truly Never Down® network. WANworX is flexible, allowing you to create the environment you want.
You also have the option to use our integrated Next Generation Firewall at remote locations to offload traffic directly to the internet, reduce congestion at headquarters, and provide an extra layer of security. One device does it all.
Make your WAN more reliable, more secure, easier to manage, and reduce network costs.
