CLINTON TWP. — EntirelyBiz, a managed IT services provider, announced that the company is now offering a service called SD-WAN, for Software-Defined Networking in a Wide Area Network. SD-WAN simplifies the management and operation of a WAN (Wid e Area Network) by separating the networking hardware from its control mechanism.
An SD-WAN enables businesses to build higher performing – lower cost WANs using the Internet. This enables companies to partially or fully replace expensive private WAN connections such as Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS). The research firm Gartner forecasts 30 percent of enterprises will deploy SD-WAN in their satellite offices by the end of 2019.
“Network technologies continues to advance at a breakneck speed and we see new innovation every single year,” said EntirelyBiz CEO Michael D. Meldrum. “We’re opportunistic when it comes to emerging technologies, always looking for technologies that provide our customers competitive advantage or cost advantage. SD-WAN can improve performance and security of our customer networks, and we’re very excited about having this new tool in our managed IT services portfolio.”
SD-WAN is a specific application of software-defined networking (SDN) technology applied to WAN connections which connect business networks – including satellite offices and data centers – over large distances. In the past, WAN connections were often controlled and secured using proprietary hardware, SD-WAN moves control into the “cloud” with a software approach.
EntirelyBiz is a managed IT services provider offering structured cabling, network infrastructure, cloud migrations, mobility, business phone systems, and business security systems to mid-size and small businesses. It is a brand of Complete Interactive Technologies Inc.
