Gain agile, flexible and cost-effective global network connectivity
Your wide area network (WAN) is the backbone of your organisation. It must align with the evolving needs of your enterprise and be agile and stable as well, to avoid overloading your IT team and escalating network-related costs.
Furthermore, today’s global collaborative relationships with colleagues, partners and customers demand a new kind of corporate network, one that encompasses the extended enterprise.
The case for SD-WAN
The software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) is the newest capability in the WAN sphere. It applies software-defined networking concepts to WAN connections, bringing benefits such as:
SD-WAN can connect your branches and data centres and optimise network performance for a lower cost than with other architectures, such as Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS). As it’s software-based, deployment of the SD-WAN onto your current infrastructure is quick & easy.
Accelerated adoption of cloud computing
IT teams responsible for branch-office productivity are driving the take-up of cloud services and they find that cloud services work better with SD-WAN, rather than with a closed network such as MPLS.
Support for corporate agility and collaboration
While MPLS networks have traditionally worked well in connecting specific point-to-point locations, users in today’s offices and those working remotely need to have integrated access to the cloud as well as to on-premise applications.

A Market on the move
The public internet does not effectively support the global delivery of modern applications. Unpredictable latency and congestion-based packet loss lengthen the average time for transferring a file between two locations, affecting the organisation’s agility. Variation in network performance and low reliability are significant issues when the race is on to communicate globally in real-time.
However, other connectivity technologies, such as MPLS, do not support optimised access to cloud services and software-as-a-service (SaaS)-based applications. They take too long to deploy, and are complex to manage.
The deficiencies inherent in the public internet and alternative connectivity technologies make SD-WAN such a compelling proposition. So much so that industry-watchers are envisaging huge take-up of SD-WAN in over the next few year.
IDC, for example, predicts that nearly half of all enterprises will be considering a migration to SD-WAN over the next 12 months, based on a survey conducted in the USA.
It’s important not to be left behind. Understanding the market – where it stands today and where it’s headed tomorrow – will help you to make better informed decisions about which solutions provide the highest ROI in terms of budget, ease of management, longevity and user experience.
One option is going the DIY route, and constructing your own SD-WAN using proprietary WAN management software which certainly can make the orchestration of network services easier at the branch.
However, it also entails managing multiple vendors and contracts and, for global enterprises, it can be difficult to integrate new branch offices or links.
In contrast, the SD-WAN that is delivered as a service or through the cloud avoids upfront outlay and minimises cost of ownership. Such a solution eliminates the high costs associated with MPLS and replaces them with predictable outgoings. It provides a stable yet flexible infrastructure with the high performance that business-critical applications need.

Improved global connectivity & built-in WAN optimisation-Aryaka SmartCONNECT
Aryaka’s global SD-WAN provides enterprise-grade connectivity and guarantees consistently fast performance for on-premise and SaaS-based applications.
• Up to 40x faster performance for on-premise, cloud and SaaS-based applications, especially in remote locations
• Stable and fast branch office network connectivity over Aryaka’s global network
• Deployment within days, as compared to MPLS, which takes months
Remote and mobile access for integrated collaboration – Aryaka SmartACCESS
Aryaka’s SmartACCESS is the first clientless SD-WAN to software-define remote access. It significantly enhances both on-premise and cloud/SaaS application performance for the remote and mobile workforce without requiring additional hardware or software clients.
To achieve this, Aryaka has integrated dynamic content delivery networking functionality into its SD-WAN offering. IT team makes one CNAME change to DNS records to route the traffic over Aryaka’s network, and that’s it. Because mobile users are routed over the Aryaka network to VPN concentrators, there is no requirement for companies to deploy concentrators all over the world.
• Accelerated SaaS application performance, on-premise and in the cloud
• Consistently fast access to data, voice and video globally, with fewer disconnects
• No additional software required – use the existing VPN client
• Simplified VPN infrastructure and enhanced remote access security
• Global deployment in hours
