Making enterprise networks Scalable, Agile and Secure
Simply put, SD-WAN, or Software-Defined WAN, is the concept of using software-based controllers on top of existing WAN architecture, to access better bandwidth, optimize traffic and dramatically improve network performance. SD-WAN technology enables organizations to abstract all network components, dynamically reallocate network resources and use software defined policies to manage network traffic. SD-WAN effectively takes your WAN to a significantly higher level of speed, consistency and control.
Think of SDN as the “software-ization” of infrastructure and a key part of a software-defined data center. In an SDN, you detach the network hardware from the networking software and replace complex, physical hardware devices with changeable layers of software. SDNs decouple the software control panel from the forwarding hardware of nodes—such as routers and switches—and executes the control software either in a local server or in the cloud. The value of SDN is that the network can dynamically reconfigure in response to the needs of specific applications
MRO-TEK SD-WAN strategy focuses on a hybrid SDN and cloud design approach which can provide the cost-effective agility needed to be responsive to the organization's infrastructure. Our SD WAN transformation/migration services brings forth the next-generation WAN connectivity solution for Indian enterprises in today’s cloud centric environment where agility, flexibility and ease of management of entire network from a single user interface are paramount, and all this is delivered by reducing the overall TCO of the entire network.
SD-WAN enables the broader goal of enterprises connecting users to applications in a cost-efficient WAN topology. It is independent of the type of network – wireless, wireline networks or the public internet – or, whether the applications are hosted in data centers or on public cloud . This will also help enterprises’ branch offices to route traffic to the internet where a more expensive MPLS line is not necessary. In addition to SD-WAN technology, Mro-Tek offers a comprehensive framework for SD-WAN implementation that is tailored to Indian business needs around data security, last-mile-connectivity and performance monitoring.
30-50% of large enterprise traffic is shifting to the cloud, changing traffic flows and making the traditional WAN suboptimal (Gartner)
80% of new applications will be deployed in the cloud by 2030 (IDC)
20% increase in enterprise WAN bandwidth per year at branch; network traffic doubling every three years (IDC)
40% of WAN edge infrastructure refresh initiatives will be based on vCPE or SD-WAN by 2018 (Gartner)
Enterprise-scale SD-WAN should provide transport independence (MPLS/Internet/4G) and any combination of service providers (Doyle Research)
Security remains #1 top network challenge for large enterprises (ZK Research)
Key values associated with deploying SDN include cost efficiency and application optimization. Networking operations have considerable capital expenses as well as operational expenses. SDN lets you avoid some CapEx expenses and shift to a more OpEx-centric model. With traditional network architectures, enterprises must buy new network devices every few years. But with SDN, organizations can transform many of the services provided by hardware into software-delivered services. Adopting SDN addresses these seemingly bottomless capital expenses by removing networking functions from dependence on any single physical device and offers users the opportunity to move the SDN into the cloud to save even more money and increase overall network efficiency.
Mro-Tek provides complete network management with a single, standard Managed Service SLA across all nodes and components. For globally distributed organizations, this provides significant flexibility to build greater operational scalability and agility without making additional time and resource allocations. Even over a small time frame of a two to three years, the cost benefits of using a managed service approach to SD-WAN are significant.
Since all network components are software defined, organizations can dynamically provision (or, de-provision) and allocate (or, de-allocate) network resources and specialized services such as firewalls, VPNs and user-controls. Netmagic also provides public cloud services that integrate seamlessly with its SD-WAN offerings, to provide rapid scalability and cloud-bursting capabilities.
Whether on-premise or cloud-based, Netmagic’s SD-WAN solution gives you a centralized interface (including dashboards and monitoring tools) to get a single, consolidated view of network performance. This is particularly beneficial to organizations that are expanding their networks very quickly and need to manage highly variable loads.
Mro-Tek provides configurable SD-WAN technology that is generally compatible with existing network components. This allows organizations to reuse their existing WAN infrastructure (such as MPLS devices, routers). Since there is minimal need to upgrade current infrastructure, our SD-WAN service becomes simpler, faster and more cost-effective to implement and manage.
