Software Defined- Wide Area Network is an emerging technology that offers several benefits compared with traditional router-based WAN’s. Network decision makers can achieve cost savings and network simplification with SD-WAN. More specifically, Iron Shield Networks’ SD-WAN providers bring together application-aware routing, secure VPN capabilities, and a stateful firewall in an integrated solution that is easy to operate and maintain.
Iron Shield Networks provides two different SD-WAN technology platforms; SD-WAN basic and SD-WAN deluxe. the SD-WAN basic product is built on and supported by BigLeaf Networks’ infrastructure. Quick to deploy and easy to use, this option allows customers to create secure connections while increasing reliability using same IP fail over. Deployments generally can occur within 2-3 weeks of contracting. This service is typically offered domestically in the United States, while international deployment is offered on a case-by-case basis.
SD-WAN deluxe is built on Sprint’s global enterprise network infrastructure and VeloCloud provides the solution infrastructure.
