FatPipe Symphony SD-WAN (Software-Defined WAN)

FatPipe's SD-WAN (Software-Defined WAN) products provide solutions for an easy migration to hybrid WAN. FatPipe delivers companies the ability to centrally manage their wide area network, manage branch office configuration and deploy appliances with the 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.

FatPipe SD-WAN (Software-Defined WAN) comes in three tiers: SD-WAN Basic, SD-WAN Advanced, and SD-WAN Pro. Users can choose the appropriate tier for the features requested at each branch.

SD-WAN (Software-Defined WAN)

The FatPipe SD-WAN solution simplifies the deployment and management of connectivity at remote sites. More over enterprises deploying FatPipe SD-WAN 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 overprovision 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 organizations to find more efficient and low-cost techniques to add a variety of network connections.
