Robust, reliable, secure network

Amplifying networks with SD-WAN

The future of networking is evolving. Whether businesses are scaling up and adding locations or modifying to support mobile workforces, they are turning to the Cloud more than ever. Today’s companies must be able to handle bandwidth-intensive communication and provide access to business-specific applications, all while combating cybercriminals. Outdated networks are not only creating a multitude of headaches for IT teams but also becoming more costly to maintain. These factors are driving organizations to look closely at their wide area networks (WAN).

A software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) solves these issues and amplifies networks to be more responsive and provide greater bandwidth with a future-proof, cost-effective solution.

What is SD-WAN?

SD-WAN is the application of software-based network technologies that virtualize WAN connections. SD-WAN abstracts network hardware to create a virtualized network overlay, offering cloud-based management and enabling users to connect to applications from anywhere. This solution provides the manageability, performance, and reliability that today’s fast-moving enterprises expect.

Key benefits

  • Improves performance

    Prioritize business-critical traffic and real-time services like Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and video. Reduce packet loss and latency issues with reliable, high-performance connections.

  • Boosts security

    CBTS can provide a wide range of integrated and extended networking and security capabilities, including service-chaining and layering on SASE to help prevent data loss, downtime, regulatory violations, and legal liabilities.

  • Lowers complexity

    Ease the IT burden by using broadband to offload non-critical business apps, automate monitoring tasks, and manage traffic through a centralized controller.

  • Enables cloud usage

    Employees can directly access cloud applications regardless of location and refrain from burdening the core network with additional traffic to manage and secure.

  • Reduces costs

    Companies lower operating expenses when switching from expensive MPLS lines to community broadband and low-cost local Internet.

Secure branch networking

With applications and operations rapidly migrating to the Cloud, security must follow the user and not be tied to a physical location. This is where Secure Access Service Edge (SASE, pronounced “sassy”) comes in. SASE is a network architecture that combines SD-WAN and security into a singular cloud framework. With its Network Security as a Service offering, CBTS couples SD-WAN technology with SASE principles to provide secure networks for organizations trending towards remote and branch operations.

The future of SD-WAN: Edge network intelligence

Most organizations lack visibility of their end-user and IoT devices on their network. Edge network intelligence (ENI) fills that gap. ENI offers a complete view of every user’s entire data plane (wired and wireless) allowing IT teams to locate issues such as latency via automatically generated issue tickets. In addition, this solution promotes improved performance, robust security, and self-healing through wireless and wired LAN, SD-WAN, and secure access service edge (SASE).

SD-WAN as a Service: The CBTS end to end CX process graphic

"Having a multi-national network means having to rely on multiple carriers because there is no one carrier that can cover our entire footprint. Managing this network was not only a challenge, but holding carriers accountable to poor network performance was impossible. VMware SD-WAN™ allowed us to create a reliable network over disparate connections, and ultimately hold our carriers responsible for meeting SLAs."
