SD-WAN as a Service

Managed SD-WAN

SD-WAN as a new approach to building WAN networks allows using the potential and throughput of resources in order to provide excellent connectivity in remote environments such as organizations with multiple locations or distributed application environments using the multi-cloud convention.

The software-defined abstraction layer offered by SD-WAN can be used as a response to the growing complexity of IT infrastructure. Due to the adaptation of a growing number of applications as well as because of the large scale of cloud migrations, optimal and efficient SD-WAN implementations have become a challenge for overloaded IT specialists.

Managed SD-WAN, also known as SD-WAN as a Service, means the full potential of SD-WAN thanks to the infrastructure of an external, certified provider who arranges hardware, configuration, network management as well as the demanded SLA under one service. Such an approach takes the workload from own IT teams making it possible to implement SD-WAN in the impressive time of a few hours instead of weeks. What’s not less important, it also moves the responsibility for the network quality to the external provider and guarantees a given level of SLA.

Managed SDWAN certified provider

Grandmetric, as one of a handful companies in Poland, received the prestigious status of Cisco Service Provider in the area of SD-WAN technology.

Marcin Biały, Member of the Board, Grandmetric

Managed SD-WAN is a solution for organizations being challenged with:

  • Maintaining multiple devices and applications
  • Challenges of multi-cloud architecture
  • The need to provide high throughput combined with high quality of video connections and streaming
  • The demand to maintain and monitor the quality of communication
  • The urgency to steer the network traffic to provide given throughput and quality for critical applications and services
  • Scarcity of resources or high overload of own IT specialists
  • Lack of relevant competencies to implement SD-WAN
  • Lack of CAPEX budget for investment in own SD-WAN devices

Business benefits of SD-WAN as a Service

Full SD-WAN functionality

Fully configured SD-WAN with a rich catalog of integrated benefits including security and efficient utilization of all accessible trunks.

One service fee

Ease of accounting due to combining multiple services (design, implementation, management, optimization) and the cost of equipment under one flat service fee.

Efficient implementation

Provider’s infrastructure allows to set up a ready-to-use WAN with automated device provisioning.

Lack of internal costs

Cost optimization through moving the cost center outside of the organization to SD-WAN service provider, and through eliminating the need to build and maintain own WAN maintenance team.

Up and running 24/7/365

Based on automation and built with regards to the best engineering practices, it allows keeping a constant quality level and a quick and proactive reaction to upcoming problems.

SD-WAN experts

Practical knowledge coming from tens of successful SD-WAN implementations and management projects.

High efficiency

Packets routing based on QoE (Quality of Experience) – measuring the quality of the entire route, from the source to the destination, and choosing such a transport route that keeps the expected service level.

Business value of SD-WAN and more

A high level of savings comes from migration to SD-WAN, including a 94% lower downtime and 65% lower connection costs, also when one uses the Managed SD-WAN model.

Due to lack of agility, managed WAN services struggle to meet the needs of an increasing business pace. I&O leaders with responsibility for managed WAN services should use emerging managed SD-WAN services to improve agility, recognizing that not all service aspects can improve via SD-WAN alone.
