Software-defined wide area network services designed to achieve reliability and security across your entire business, supported with industry-leading managed services for maximum peace of mind. Eliminate complexity from your connectivity setup and improve performance while keeping costs under control.
What is SD-WAN ?
A software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) is a virtualized service that connects and extends enterprise networks over large geographical distances. WANs use links such as multiprotocol label switching (MPLS), wireless, broadband, virtual private networks (VPNs) and the internet to give users in remote offices access to corporate applications, services and resources, allowing them to work regardless of location. SD-WAN monitors the performance of WAN connections and manages traffic in an effort to maintain high speeds and optimize connectivity.
IT&T SD-WAN Benefits
ADD SPEED TO YOUR SD-WAN
IT&T BONDING CAN CREATE STRONGER LINKS WITH SEAMLESS FAILOVER.
IT&T proprietary bonding technology in its 6th generation ensures maximised throughput, even from links with diverse speed and latency. You can even select different speeds accessed from your links, e.g. take a slower ADSL and marry that with the just the uplink capacity of a 4G connection to create a super fast symmetrical link wile saving on data costs. With our advanced bonding algorithms, we can maximise even in troublesome sites/locations.
ROLL OUT YOUR SD-WAN WITH NO DELAY
Zero touch deployment. SD-WAN nodes can be activated on site OR at a central location and sent to your remote location where the only effort required is plugging it in! Growing your network could not be easier or faster.
RELIABILITY AND STABILITY
DYNAMIC PACKET MANAGEMENT AND FAILOVER
IT&T SD-WAN offers one of the fastest levels of failover of packets from failed connections. If your site access is of the highest priority, link redundancy is key…but…you need to ensure that should a line failure occur, it is unnoticed by all your applications no matter how sensitive they are.
As a standard we route packets off failed links in under 300ms and faster if required. This will all be completely undetectable by all your applications.
In addition, not all your broadband connections will perform the best all the time. Our intelligent link performance management tool monitors your links latency, packet loss and stability and dynamically adjusts the load on each link to maintain consistent low latency performance to ensure application performance.
THE SD-WAN PORTAL GIVES YOU THE PERFECT VIEW
The IT&T SD-WAN portal allows you to quickly see your entire network and the status of each link and gives you the ability to zoom in to each site and adjust settings on a per-site or per-link basis.
You can also globally adjust all local and global routing and port forwarding rules across your whole network quickly and instantly, as well as being able to instantly change gateways, inbound port forwards, 1:1 NAT routes, etc. It’s all at your fingertips…from anywhere in the world! We support multiple sub-nets, routes, Vlans, etc…
GATEWAY OPTIONS GALORE!
IT&T SD-WAN GIVES YOU MULTIPLE GATEWAY OPTIONS.
With IT&t SD-WAN, you have the option (that can be changed at any time) to have a number of different Internet access gateways:
- centralised, at a particular site;
- multiple sites; or
- you can even have your IT&T SD-WAN co-exist with your existing MPLS network a and use that as its Internet gateway (or not!).
The choice is yours as its your network.
INTERNATIONAL ACCESS POINTS
IT&T HAS OVER 12 POPS AROUND THE GLOBE
IT&T not only give you access to multiple PoP’s in Australia. Your international sites can all be part of your SD-WAN network while retaining nearby local low latency PoPs and Internet gateways.
We have SD-WAN PoPs through Asia, North America and Europe. We can even work with your preferred carrier or MSP to assist them in provisioning a shared or dedicated PoP on your behalf!
IT&T HAS OVER 12 POPS AROUND THE GLOBE
Unfortunately not all broadband connections perform their best all the time.
IT&T’s SD-WAN AI link management constantly monitors your links for latency spikes or increases as well as bi-directional packet loss.
We then automatically manage the load we put on the link to ensure that latency is kept as low as possible to keep your online applications as responsive as possible.
WE GIVE YOU OPTIONS AND CONTROL
IT&T gives you advanced control over your network with the ability to have VLANs configured on site, multiple subnets, DHCP servers with advanced options, TFTP server options in addition to routed blocks.
No other solution is able to give you such advanced network functionality.
DATA COMPRESSION AND TCP ACCELERATION
IT&T SD-WAN nodes all have two critical performance enhancing features:
One is Compression, where we can compress all compressible data running through the Node – either direction and to/from any destination – locally in your SD-WAN network or any location outside of your SD-WAN network.
The second is our TCP acceleration process which can extract optimal performance from links even on congested services, this process can greatly enhance the accessible bandwidth from heavily loaded shared services.
ADVANCED SECURITY OPTIONS
MULTI-LEVEL SECURITY FOR YOU TO CHOOSE FROM
IT&T SD-WAN gives you incredible security with packet level encryption from source to destination and back, but we don’t stop there!
We allow you to select various security options, these include HMAC Authentication , Encryption AES 128, AES 256 and SALSA20 ciphers all with a customisable handshake intervals from every 60 seconds upwards.
With in-transit data theft being so high this gives you the highest level of data protection and security.
THE ULTIMATE IN FLEXIBILITY
CHOICE, CHOICE AND CHOICE!
Even for customers with the most critical security options, IT&T Broadband gives you the ability to terminate your SD-WAN in your own data-centre or network where your packets will never even touch our network! The choice is yours!
