Transform your network with SD-WAN: Enhanced Performance, Cost Efficiency, Improved Security, and Unmatched Agility for Today's Distributed Applications.

SD-WAN is redefining the standards for how networks are designed and managed to meet the demands of today’s users and the distributed nature of applications. SD-WAN offers a wide range of solutions to various challenges in today’s digitally driven environment:

Complex and Costly Network Management

While SD-WAN offers the potential for removing expensive MPLS links and moving to lower cost internet connectivity, recent changes in the connectivity market means that this only exists in some locations. The real cost savings comes from the simplification of network management.  This reduces the cost of managing the work on a day-to-day consolidating network service, such as WAN Optimization, routing, switching and edge security into a single appliance and management interphase.

Inefficient Network Performance

By intelligently routing traffic and prioritizing critical applications, SD-WAN ensures optimal performance across the network. This leads to enhanced productivity and user experience, which can positively impact customer satisfaction and employee efficiency.

Security Risks

SD-WAN solutions often incorporate advanced security features such as encryption, firewall capabilities, and threat detection. By centralizing security policies and ensuring consistent enforcement across all network endpoints, SD-WAN helps mitigate cybersecurity risks and protect sensitive data.

Lack of Network Agility and Scalability

SD-WAN simplifies network management and configuration through centralized orchestration, allowing organizations to quickly adapt to changing business requirements and scale their network infrastructure as needed. This agility enables faster deployment of new branch offices, applications, and services.

Risk of Network Downtime

SD-WAN provides built-in redundancy and failover capabilities, ensuring high availability and resilience for critical applications and services. This reduces the risk of network downtime and minimizes disruptions to business operations, thereby safeguarding revenue and reputation.

Limited Network Visibility and Control

SD-WAN offers comprehensive visibility into network traffic and application performance through centralized management interfaces. This granular insight enables better decision-making, troubleshooting, and optimization of the network, leading to improved operational efficiency.

Supporting Digital Transformation

SD-WAN facilitates the adoption of cloud-based applications and services by providing reliable connectivity and optimized performance. This aligns with organizations’ digital transformation goals and enables them to embrace emerging technologies more effectively.

Compliance and Governance Issue

SD-WAN helps organizations enforce compliance with regulatory requirements and industry standards by implementing robust security measures and ensuring data privacy and integrity across the network.

In summary, the business case for SD-WAN revolves around its ability to deliver cost savings, improved performance, enhanced security, agility, scalability, business continuity, visibility, and control, thereby supporting organizations’ strategic objectives and digital transformation initiatives.

This solution forms part of StreamlineX, our innovative framework that enables IT teams to provide secure, optimized, and observable connections between users and applications.

Take a modern approach to SD-WAN

Successful I&O leaders are utilizing SD-WAN not only as a way to cut costs of conventional networks, but also as a system that streamlines and elevates network efficiency and operational flexibility.

SD-WAN is more than a solution; it’s a strategic ally in your digital transformation journey, ensuring your business not only meets but sets industry standards. With Teneo and our SD-WAN solution, you’re equipped to lead in the digital era.

Our Approach to SD-WAN

We take a consultancy-based approach to deploying SD-WAN, using the following steps to ensure maximum value from your investment.


Initial Assessment and Requirements Gathering

  • We collaboratively define the objectives you want from your SD-WAN deployment, considering factors such as technical requirements, commercial needs, operational model, and any regulatory requirements. We use this information to create a Solutions Requirements Document (SRD) which shapes the design process.


Design and Architecture Planning

  • Working together, we will develop a tailored SD-WAN design and architecture that aligns with your organization’s specific network, security and visibility goals and operational requirements.
  • This will include defining site, overlays, traffic flow policies, security controls, and segmentation enforcement mechanisms.


Pilot Deployment and Proof of Concept (PoC)

  • We will implement a pilot deployment of SD-WAN in a controlled environment or specific network segment to validate the proposed design and assess its efficacy in real-world scenarios.
  • The pilot/PoC will be used to test the functionality, performance, and security effectiveness of the SD-WAN solution against predefined success criteria.


Policy Development and Fine-Tuning

  • Following the pilot/PoC we will develop comprehensive network and security policies and rule sets governing traffic flow and security control across the network, leveraging best practices and industry standards.
  • During this phase we will refine, and fine-tune policies and settings based on feedback from stakeholders, performance metrics, and observed network behavior during the pilot deployment phase.


Implementation and Rollout

  • Execute the full-scale implementation of SD-WAN across your organization’s network infrastructure, following the validated design and security policies established during the pilot phase.
  • Our deployment engineers will ensure a smooth rollout process, providing necessary training and support to internal IT teams responsible for managing and maintaining the SD-WAN solution.


Continuous Monitoring and Optimization

  • Establish ongoing monitoring and analysis mechanisms to assess the effectiveness of SD-WAN in mitigating security risks and improving overall network performance.
  • Regularly review and update network and security policies, adapt to evolving threats and business requirements, and optimize the SD-WAN architecture for maximum efficiency.

Our consultancy-first approach to deploying SD-WAN, enables you to leverage the specialized expertise and experience of our cybersecurity consultants and engineers to ensure a comprehensive, tailored, and effective implementation that addresses your unique security challenges and regulatory compliance needs.
