Software-defined wide area networks (SD-WAN) are a better fit than traditional router-centric WANs for today’s geographically distributed enterprises – especially those pursuing a cloud-first strategy for application delivery.

As organizations continue to adopt Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications and cloud infrastructure (IaaS), exploding traffic levels and changing traffic patterns are prompting enterprises to reevaluate their Wide Area Networks (WANs). In virtually every market segment, applications are moving to the cloud and a decreasing number are hosted on-premise in the data center. To compound the networking challenge, application bandwidth requirements continue to increase to deliver a superior user experience.

See how Silver Peak First-packet iQ enables organizations to reach cloud-based applications, SaaS, IaaS and trusted web traffic directly to the Internet from branch offices. It intelligently identifies applications on first packet and dynamically steers traffic to its destination on an app-by-app basis.

Challenges with Legacy WANs

Significant shifts in application and traffic patterns, including the increased use of cloud services, are driving the need for enterprises to reevaluate networking requirements for branch offices. This includes a desire of enterprises to use broadband connectivity to easily connect users in branch offices to cloud-based applications.

Silver Peak Service Provider SD-WAN Solution

Silver Peak Unity EdgeConnectSP is a complete, high-performance SD-WAN solution. It enables service providers to bring new, differentiated, managed SD-WAN services to market quickly and cost effectively to drive new revenue streams, expand market reach and deliver SLAs in and out-of-region.

EdgeConnectSP Advantages

Service provider benefits of the Silver Peak EdgeConnectSP solution include:

EdgeConnectSP Solution

The solution provides flexibility for service providers to map individual or groups of applications to specific business overlays that can be customized for each enterprise. With this overlay model, service providers can migrate customers to an SD-WAN at their own pace while continuing to offer tiered managed MPLS VPN and private cloud connectivity services.

Most enterprise digital transformation initiatives embrace a cloud-first strategy for hosting today’s evolving mix of applications. They need flexibility to provide secure connectivity of their users to corporate applications from anywhere and across any type of WAN and from any device.

As cloud-based application adoption continues to accelerate, geographically distributed enterprises increasingly view the wide area network (WAN) as critical to connecting users to applications.

As enterprise applications migrate from the corporate data center to the cloud, private line connections such as multi-protocol label switching (MPLS) have proven to be overly rigid and expensive. With greater reliance on the internet, the opportunity to achieve “cloud speed” is better served by integrating broadband services into the WAN transport mix.

The Unity EdgeConnect M is a 1U rack-mountable platform that serves to build an SD-WAN fabric using Zero Touch Provisioning. It supports MPLS, 4G/LTE, and Internet-based hybrid WAN data paths and a control plane that is automated and secured by the Unity Orchestrator software to provide policy-based virtual network segmentation and acceleration of on-premise and SaaS cloud applications.

The Unity EdgeConnect S is a compact form factor Thin Edge appliance that serves to build an SD-WAN fabric using Zero Touch Provisioning. It supports MPLS, 4G/LTE, and Internet-based hybrid WAN data paths and a control plane that is automated and secured by the Unity Orchestrator software to provide policy-based virtual network segmentation and acceleration of on-premise and SaaS cloud applications. Key features of the EdgeConnect S include quiet operations and flexible mounting options, making it an ideal platform for large branch and remote office environments with typical WAN bandwidth
