There iSD WANs a shift in how businesses use technology—even in San Antonio, Texas. New applications, including Voice over IP (VoIP) phone systems, cloud based email, file sync & sharing all require solid network infrastructure. According to a recent report from the enterprise strategy group, demonstrating SD-WAN business value: Rethinking WAN for a modern age, distributed organizations with multiple Remote Office/Branch Office (ROBO) locations may need to reduce unnecessary deployment and management of network infrastructure. Elements of infrastructure, such as head-end devices or appliances at branches, can be replaced with simple appliances supported by cloud-based services. Here is a highlight of ESG’s findings:

Simplify your Wide Area Network

Software Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) technology can act as an enabler for hybrid WAN technology by combining multiple transports, such as MPLS networks and business-class broadband networking. Managing your Texas-based network can be streamlined by centralizing policy management, monitoring, and systems for troubleshooting. What’s more, reducing dependency on specific network suppliers and transport mechanisms results in the flexibility to find lower-cost alternates without compromising service levels. What this means for your San Antonio or Austin based company is lower prices for superior products.

Minimize Operational Expense

By using a zero-touch deployment model, companies can reduce truck rolls by remotely managing installation, configuration updates, and troubleshooting. Like Software as a Service (SaaS) works for application deployment, SD-WAN can remove the complexity of managing a Wide Area Network (WAN) for Remote Office/Branch Office (ROBO) environments.

Reduce the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of Your Wide Area Network

Implementing SD-WAN technology is expected to save costs related to bandwidth by providing more flexible networking options. In addition, by reducing the operating expense of service delivery related to installation, configuration, operations, and management additional costs will be eliminated from moving services to the cloud. Wide Area Networking (WAN) as a service eases deployments by minimizing truck rolls—especially important for rural areas around Texas where businesses rely on communications.
