Managed Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN)

Enterprises with multiple locations located globally have been using Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) to connect sites securely. However, with the demand for Internet bandwidth growing and the shift in how enterprises now work, Wide Area Network (WAN) connectivity over MPLS presents several challenges for enterprises with internet backhaul using up precious MPLS capacity, namely rising costs.

Traditional SD-WAN solutions rely on best effort Internet access, which renders them unable to deliver a user experience similar to MPLS for businesses. Our Managed SD-WAN service provides service level guarantees for network uptime, latency and packet loss for the global backbone. The last mile connectivity at each location connects users to the closest Point-of-Presence (PoP) and into our global backbone for maximum performance.

Benefits

Disruptive Technology

SD-WAN disrupts MPLS connectivity and point-to-point leased lines by providing a similar end user experience leveraging on commodity Internet at a fraction of the price. With built-in WAN optimisation, enterprises can prioritise traffic using Quality-of-Service (QoS) policies to ensure that they have sufficient bandwidth for their operations.

Ease of Use

With an embedded cloud firewall service, businesses can have complete visibility to the entire network's security and WAN policies, as well as real-time performance metrics and analytics, with a single dashboard.

Scalable

Businesses can scale the bandwidth needed per site with a pay-as-you-go scheme. With ViewQwest's Managed SD-WAN, enterprises can connect multiple sites without any on-premise equipment and reduce the hefty upfront equipment costs and monthly personnel costs to have trained IT professionals at each site.

Faster Deployment

WAN solutions can take up to 3 to 6 months to deploy, particularly in remote locations. With built-in network optimisation and an access-agnostic solution, enterprises can connect sites in a matter of days instead of months.

Cloud Optimisation

We have optimised access to major cloud providers for branch locations and mobile users across the globe, providing increased visibility for enterprises on all cloud traffic. Performance and latency to key productivity cloud applications are dramatically improved for remote locations.

Features

Centralised Platform

We provide a unified platform to manage network and security policies for enterprises. With a user-friendly interface that provides comprehensive and historical information on each site's network performance, including latency, packet loss and jitter. The cloud-based portal also enables enterprises to view security policies across the entire business, and delivers granular visibility into each user's usage patterns and behaviours.

Converged Infrastructure

By eliminating multiple on-premise equipment, such as routers, firewalls, WAN accelerators and load balancers, ViewQwest provides a single device that delivers the same functionalities.

Distributed, Global Backbone

Each site connects to the closest PoP, which is in turn connected to the rest of the global PoPs with redundant Tier 1 connections. With over 40 PoPs around the world and a roadmap of 100, enterprises can enjoy high performance WAN and Internet access even when they're connected through best effort broadband.

Software-Defined Perimeter Security

ViewQwest provides a full security stack built directly into the cloud network. Its comprehensive features include Internet and WAN Next Generation Firewall, Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), Application Control, Web Filtering, Anti-Malware and more.

Secured Remote Access

Remote users can connect to the network and access applications through the remote access client Virtual Private Network (VPN). Users can connect to the resources they need, and work securely and safely. Businesses can view the bandwidth and application analytics of each site and user to enforce network usage policies.
