The enterprise network landscape has changed rapidly over the last few years. From the sudden and complete shift to remote work sites accelerating the move of applications to the cloud, to the global need for more network resiliency, security, scalability, and bandwidth support, it’s clear that the modernization of enterprise networks is a requirement—not an option.
Many organizations have recognized the power of SD-WAN for transforming their WAN performance and reducing costs. A recent study showed that 80% of Enterprise organizations are expected to adopt modern, automated networks over the next two years.
Enterprises are looking to reduce complexity by favoring an all-in-one SD-WAN and SASE solution. The agility of routing offered with SD-WAN is only part of the success story. In order for SD-WAN to succeed, it must include the right connectivity services. This means the right service for location to support the team at that location and the applications they use. A dedicated Internet or broadband service may cost less, but does it deliver the right performance, availability, and security for the data moving in and out of that location?
Unitas Reach™ is the industry’s first purpose-built network for modernizing Enterprise networks by interconnecting edge locations, Internet, data centers, and diverse cloud locations in one edge to everywhere managed solution. Enterprises can design an SD-WAN network that includes the right combination of Ethernet Private Line, DIA, Broadband, and LTE with both physical or virtual devices.
With the right connections in place, the Unitas managed SD-WAN solution provides value with:
– Virtual SD-WAN gateway appliances that put cloud environments on-net for best performance
– Donut Peering which provides better access for broadband-connected SD-WAN users
– On-net SD-WAN gateways at Unitas PoPs, which provide hubs in centrally located enterprise data centers
Check out how these Unitas customers achieved success with SD-WAN:
The Best SD-WAN Experience for a Global Manufacturer
A leading global manufacturer with locations in different countries and markets saw the value of SD-WAN for supporting their system infrastructure. This company had a requirement that not just their primary but all their connectivity had to be at highest performance to support the movement of their critical data. They chose Unitas to provide DIA and wireless connectivity across their worldwide locations for the best SD-WAN experience.
WAN Optimization for an IT Services Provider
An American multinational IT services and consulting company was experiencing high costs and many internal business challenges with their existing MPLS network. By moving their 138 office locations across 56 countries to SD-WAN and leveraging Unitas dedicated Internet access, the company achieved cost savings. Additionally, they increased security and gained proactive monitoring for a healthier network.
Improved Availability for an Acquired Company
After being acquired, a manufacturing company was challenged when merging their network, systems, and clouds with those of their new parent company. They knew SD-WAN was part of the answer, but they also needed something other than public Internet to get their desired results. Unitas Global’s high-performance Internet with donut peering gave this company the SaaS On-Ramp they needed to improve availability of their systems between their manufacturing plants and branch offices, enabling them to deliver a better service for their end users.
