FatPipe's Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN) products provide solutions for an easy migration to hybrid WAN. Symphony with Orchestrator delivers companies the ability to centrally manage their WANs (Wide Area Network), manage branch office configuration and deploy appliances with zero-touch installation.
A company can easily add cost effective direct Internet access at a branch to increase available bandwidth. FatPipe's advanced policy management allows cloud destined applications to be routed directly out of the local Internet connection while maintaining corporate security policies. Applications that are hosted in the corporation's private cloud also benefit from a FatPipe managed hybrid network.
FatPipe patented multi-path security or MPSec manages application flows and load balances them across the multiple paths between the data center and remote site. With MPSec, network managers have incredible granular control of how the flows are load balanced. Factors such as latency, packet loss, jitter, and point-to-point bandwidth can all be used to dynamically load balance traffic ensuring the best network experience possible for users. As an added bonus, in the event of a path failure sessions will not fail. This means that a VoIP call will not drop if there is a link outage; the call will have a sub-second failover to an available route.
SD-WAN (Software-Defined WAN)
Symphony is one of the FatPipe’s products which are offering Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN) solution. This SD-WAN solution simplifies the deployment and management of connectivity at remote sites. More over enterprises deploying Symphony with Orchestrator are not only provided with the ability to centrally control their WANs but also to manage branch office configuration. The appliances can be deployed with zero-touch installation as well.
In spite of paying the expedite fees, companies are not able to install the devices at sites due to the provisioning delays. These issues of provisioning delays are solved by SD-WAN through centrally orchestrated overlay network that allows a business to select the best available underlay per location.
WAN bandwidth seems saturated very often with an upsurge in the usage of network heavy applications such as voice over internet protocol (VOIP) and Video. SD-WAN solutions resolve these issues in a simple step.
High-bandwidth application support: Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN) solution allows those enterprises who are not willing to over provision their network bandwidth but take the advantage of video conferencing and collaboration applications, to use that much bandwidth they need when they need it, and then turn it off.
Accelerate branch office deployment: New offices are brought online more quickly by the enterprises.
Policy-based forwarding: In case of bandwidth limitation SD-WAN will allow the enterprises to prioritize their communications.
Support mergers and acquisitions: SD-WAN speeds up the process of sites integration whenever a company makes any acquisition
Enable the Internet-of-Things: SD-WAN will support millions of connections and the data flowing between them in spite of intelligent sensors and other devices. Enterprises have various changing needs in case of their WANs with business critical applications requiring intelligent routing of the traffic through multiple WAN links. Increased number of branch offices and remote users are the facts that drive organisations to find more efficient and low cost techniques to add a variety of network connections.
Benefits of SD-WAN solutions:
- Quick deployments
- Easy provisioning of branch offices
- Revenue is generated faster
- Delivery of WAN services is made simple
- Zero-touch deployment and management
- Offers more flexibility
- Acts as a cost effective alternative to MPLS
- More intelligence and logic is implemented in software
- Network uptime is improved up to 99.99988% and above
- Increased security
A company which is utilizing only private lines to access the internet from remote offices to the headquarters but needs greater bandwidth is helped out with a solution from FatPipe through Symphony.
The internet access control server is queried by Symphony to allow access to a website. When that access is allowed, all the web traffic from branches is automatically directed over a low cost local internet lines. Biggest advantage of Symphony is that it uses inexpensive local internet lines for web traffic in place of point-to-point lines. It works with Web sense and others.
Premise FatPipe Orchestrator
FatPipe Premise Managed Solution provides enterprises the ability to centrally control their WANs, easily manage branches and deploy appliances with zero-touch. End users can easily migrate to a more optimal hybrid WAN topology for diverse cloud resources.
Hosted FatPipe Orchestrator
FatPipe Hosted Solutions enhance resiliency for businesses through a Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN) with zero-touch deployment and hosted management and reporting. The FatPipe Orchestrator is hosted on a separate appliance from the FatPipe routing appliance. This management appliance can be hosted in the end users network datacenter or outside. The customer retains exclusive and complete control of the orchestrator.
The remote symphony devices phone home and pull their policy and security configuration with no touch needed by remote personnel. Once configured, the remote devices continue to check with the orchestrator for configuration changes allowing the orchestrator to swiftly and automatically populate any policy or configuration changes throughout the network.
FatPipe enables cloud service providers and managed service providers to offer managed hybrid WANs and intelligent multi-path control for WAN-as-a-Service.
The FatPipe orchestrator is hosted on an appliance inside of the MSP's cloud. This model allows for an MSP to have a single multi-tenant FatPipe orchestrator or multiple virtual FatPipe orchestrator appliances. Multiple customer data networks remain segmented while allowing a MSP to have a global overview of the customer base.
