Software Defined Networking & SD-WAN

Create a Modern IT Infrastructure

Networks run the applications that drive your business. Traditional network infrastructures cannot effectively enable cloud and digital initiatives as these present new demands on ITs. In order to support the digital business, your network infrastructure must be migrated to a Software-Defined architecture that is capable of fully supporting automation, programmability, cloud connectivity, and end-to-end security.

Software-Defined Networking (SDN)

SDN, commonly referenced in data center networking only, encompasses all Software-Defined technologies for the entire network infrastructure – including SD-WAN and SD-LAN. SDN enables a giant leap in how networks are managed by moving away from manual, command-line, device-by-device configuration to a centralized graphical interface that provides accuracy, speed, and simplicity. SDN ensures the network is able to meet the needs of virtualized, hybrid, and cloud environments.

Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN)

SD-WAN is a critical aspect of a modern WAN architecture and addresses the limitations and complexities of the traditional WAN. In addition to enabling cloud and mobility at the branch office, SD-WAN addresses performance, telecom costs, and agility issues prevalent with legacy architectures. Additionally, SD-WAN simplifies quality of service (QoS) and path selection (routing) – two areas historically difficult to deploy and troubleshoot.

ePlus’ Digital Infrastructure practice provides consultative services and proven methodologies to design and build modern IT infrastructures. Our extensive experience with SDN and SD-WAN vendors and services ensures our customers are properly educated and make the right selection – as we have successfully done for hundreds of organizations. Our engagement model focuses on reducing decision complexity, increasing return on investment, and reducing risk.

Our partnerships with key vendors and providers helps you make the best possible investments in a modern IT infrastructure to:

• Improve the customer and end-user experience via increased bandwidth and resiliency

• Boost IT agility through reduced complexity and increased visibility

• Lower operational and connectivity costs

• Enhance cloud performance and security
