Improve digital performance at a lower cost across SD-WAN, LAN, and cloud networks
Today’s MPLS Networks
Traditional methods are hardware-centric and rely on scrips or manual CLIs to implement changes. This approach is too slow, complex, and error-prone to match the rate of change needed today.
High connectivity costs
Many organizations rely on expensive MPLS connectivity. Video, IoT, and new branch offices are driving increased bandwidth and costs. Much of the traffic is direct-to-net yet backhauled over MPLS.
Network congestion is increasing exponentially but traditional network tools lack the automation to re-route traffic based on link status or to prioritize applications that require higher quality of service (QoS).
Replace slow, complex, error-prone CLI tasks with automated and centralized network management. Configure and rollout business and security policies across your WAN, LAN, and cloud environments, saving you time and money.
Lower costs with hybrid WAN
Realize considerable savings by moving some (or all) WAN traffic from MPLS to broadband Internet. SD-WAN makes it easy to set up secure, hybrid WANs that blend MPLS with broadband Internet. By using broadband, SD-WAN can quickly scale to meet changing business requirements.
Improved performance and security
Prioritize and steer traffic from different applications and users onto appropriate paths. Monitor the health of WAN links and automatically route traffic onto alternate paths when the primary path is congested. Embed firewalls and segment traffic to provide secure connectivity or integrate with a cloud security provider for deep inspection.
Featured Customer Stories
GHD needed a simple, cost-effective solution to enable the rapid deployment of 50 new sites.
When global professional services company GHD merged with North American engineering consultancy Conestoga-Rovers and Associates (CRA), it added more than 3,000 employees in 100 offices, including 50 small sites. They needed a simple, cost-effective solution to enable the rapid deployment of those new sites onto the company’s network. Riverbed SteelConnect has helped GHD achieve this, fueling stronger collaboration amongst its project teams spread across the globe, business agility and cost savings of an anticipated USD 1 million a year.
We did a really thorough assessment of the space, and Riverbed SteelConnect just ticked all the boxes - a very low, almost zero-touch deployment, easy to stand up, low levels of ongoing maintenance and support and cost savings. Elizabeth Harper, CIO, GHD
