Are we using Data Network as a Platform?
Embracing Technology by Business
We as many Businesses are generating a lot of Data; the world is full of sensors, IoT’s (Internet of
Things), we need a secure platform, Network to transfer and analyze it, use it to our advantage, for the
greater good and to be competitive in the market space. The Cloud is evolving, and they are not the
same what they used to be in 2005, 2015, and they will evolve further in 2025.
Data Networks in current and future business model provides security and scalability, at the same time
Data Networks are agile and available for use. SD-WAN ticks all the boxes and integrates nicely with
other services, this gives the Edge, adds value and benefits Business.
If you are in Energy, Retail or Manufacturing Business, embrace new opportunities, The Network is here
to help you GROW.
What is so distinct about SD-WAN?
The traditional role of the Wide Area Network (WAN) was to connect users at the branch or campus to
applications hosted on servers in the Data Center. For this purpose expensive private-circuit or MPLS
This is no longer needed in the digital world as applications are moving to the Cloud and end-users are
much more mobile and work from remote locations.
Software Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) came to the market over 5 years ago as a solution to
address many challenges that we are going to discuss in detail next slides.
So, the question remains: why SD-WAN?
How does it work?
Imagine you are on a trip between San Francisco and New York before GPS was available you would
have to use a map to identify a best route. If there was an accident and the motorway was closed, you
would have to find an alternative route based on limited information at hand. This is the way WAN
router used to operate.
Today, just as GPS has changed the game for car travel, SD-WAN changes the game for WAN
architectures. With SD-WAN, the edge router can now rely on an ‘eye in the sky’ for direction as to how
and where to forward traffic.
Whereas GPS can help a person avoid road construction, accidents, travel delays and inefficient routes,
SD-WAN can help branch router avoid loss, latency (delay) and jitter with the network.
What challenges Business is facing?
How can we assist you?
Before we go to next slides and reveal all the benefits, we would like to find out what challenges your
business is facing and how can be we contribute to resolve any matters.
From our side it is important that we add value to the business by delivering a project and enhancing
data network and cyber-security infrastructure.
We will listen to all your questions and queries. Our aim is to assist and provide tangible benefits to the
business – this gives us huge satisfaction when our client is content with the result.
Perhaps, we can revisit this at the end of presentation.
SD-WAN Benefits to the Business
• Increasing bandwidth through the activation of idle backup links and dynamic Load-balancing –
Active/Active setup. This is very essential business pays for two links; broadband and LTE, both are
fully utilised, and pays dividend for latency (delay) sensitive application like VoIP (Voice over Internet
Protocol), and provides resiliency to the branch, campus office – mitigating any downtime.
• Delivering a faster Cloud access by enabling direct Internet access at the branch. Using traditional
methods via the Data Center will cause delays for the traffic and put a stress on Data Center
infrastructure, firewalls will have to filter more data, and bandwidth could be congested. Therefore SD-
WAN is a better solution, particularly more scalable for an agile business that is expanding vividly. It
provides options for the user and application: go directly to the Cloud and Data Center.
• Reducing Operational and management costs through centralized management that is commonly
cloud-based. This is very important once the infrastructure is deployed as a unified platform across the
company to provide the same tight security everywhere and it is easier to troubleshoot.
• Lowering WAN costs through the use of cheaper Internet; broadband or LTE connectivity as an
alternative to MPLS. Costs are quickly multiplying with number of sites. SD-WAN is up to 40% more
cost-effective to MPLS, if you multiply that by 100x sites? (2x LTE from different providers if broadband
is not available in remote location). You can relay only on LTE in very remote locations.
SD-WAN Benefits to the Business (continued)
• Advanced application optimisation that delivers a predictable application experience as the
business application strategy evolves. It gives an advantage to the business over its competitors, the
idea is that end-users, clients, partners are benefiting from a considerably better performance by
using company applications and services.
• Multi-Layered Security which provides the flexibility to deploy the right security in the right place,
either on-premise or cloud-delivered. We can’t emphasise this enough. Security is EXTREMLY
important at the branch office, and in the past, it was always an ‘Achilles heel’, this has changed with
SD-WAN for the better. More to follow in next slides.
• Simplicity at Enterprise scale which enables end-to-end policy from the user to the application over
thousands of sites. It is fair enough that business model is changing, Covide19 has proven this
already. For Today’s Business Simplicity and Scalability are important items in case of expansion or
• Immensely Reducing Provisioning time when deploying remote sites. Time is the commodity that
we don’t have and can’t buy. Talking from experience to setup MPLS or private-circuit a lead-time of
90 days is needed. With SD-WAN this can be achieved with a matter of days.
High Availability and
The SD-WAN solution is designed with application availability and
performance as a cornerstone. The main Goal of any High-Availability
solution is to ensure that network services are resilient to failure. The
Core of SD-WAN High-Availability is achieved through a combination of
• Device Redundancy: The strategy consist of deploying redundant hardware
devices (two or more). These devices are connected using secure protocol in
• Robust Network Design: Support for multiple dynamic protocols (such as BGP
and OSPF), so if topology changes it will be automatically updated to both LAN
and WAN segments.
• Software Mechanism: Ensures rapid recovery from both direct and indirect
failure. Provides resilient solution that monitors the status of all WAN Edge
routers on the network.
SD-WAN offers a unified way of connecting to applications in the Cloud and extending the
network to the Cloud from any site including the Data Center, hub or branch.
Applications, such as Salesforce or Office 365, are optimized by choosing the best available
The Path selection is based on performance measurements obtained from all available paths.
In case performance degradation, traffic will be move dynamically to a more optimal path.

SD-WAN architecture provides strong security at multiple layers and provides assurance you need. You are
confident to enable branches to have direct Internet access without dependency on another devices or
Very strong threat defence mechanism are built into the WAN Edge router. This ensures the protection of end-
user traffic at branch network from Internet threats, and it also improves the application performance
Following are the threat defence features and benefits which are available on the WAN Edge router:

SD-WAN is very useful for forecasting of network and
application utilization for better capacity planning
Although networks are built to carry application traffic, delivering an
optimal application experience is one of the most critical aspects of
achieving higher user PRODUCTIVITY
Some issues impacting an application’s quality of experience include:
• Data loss over pool quality circuits
• Excess delay or jitter on a circuit impacting voice or
other business-critical applications.
• Latency due to backhauling cloud traffic to central
• Inappropriate prioritization of Business-Critical traffic
on lower bandwidth links.
Business Need & Core Requirements
Connecting an Enterprise Network to a Cloud provider infrastructure can be challenging for IT since
each cloud provider has different consumption models for connectivity. IT Managers are looking for a
transparent and automated way to extend their Enterprise Network into the Public Cloud.
Scalability and reducing time are the key reasons for integrating Enterprise with SD-WAN
• Uses full SD-WAN capabilities in the Cloud
• Applies a common policy framework across SD-WAN and multiple Clouds
• Centralised management for physical routers from the Cloud
• Ensures best infrastructure security
Cisco Case Study, Largest US Bank
• Improve customer experience for applications such as self-service kiosks,
video conferencing with live experts, and new retail bank applications.
• Reduce overhead related to compliance and security
• Share real-time data with financial technology partners
• Simplify operations for branches and ATM’s
• Become more API-driven
One of the largest banks in the United States, with more than 1,100 locations and almost 2,500 automated teller machines
(ATM’s), was looking for an SD-WAN solution for their 1,400 locations in order to achieve the following major goals:
The chosen solution was a managed service built on SD-WAN, which dramatically improved service delivery and quality of
experience. It significantly shrunk the time to deliver higher-bandwidth capacity to remote location from 60 days to just
few days by leveraging the Internet as transport.
Application performance improved due to dynamic SLA-based traffic routing over Internet and LTE circuits. The higher
performing network helped with data loss prevention and backup as well.
In addition to enabling video and Wi-Fi in the branches, this network foundation helped the bank to move to agile
development, it enhanced user and client experience, and securely connect with financial technology partners. Centralised
software updates were used to quickly update the network.
We can deploy this solution in any business
A large fashion retailer with over 1,000+ locations was looking to increase bandwidth at every
branch, to reduce the dependency on expensive private MPLS circuits, and provide better
guest Internet access.
As part of the SD-WAN deployment, the customer adopted a model of using WAN
Edge router devices with dual Internet uplinks. These sites were also tied into
bespoke DNS and Web filtering services. This deployment model provided very
desirable business outcomes – monitoring, integrated security, more bandwidth,
and better performance with significant cost benefits.
The company now relies exclusively on Internet connectivity for smaller sites and uses a
combination of MPLS and Internet circuits for much larger and critical sites. Having multiple
Internet uplinks makes the network more reliable: if one fails, it can easily failover to another
one, and with in-depth security enabled, all guest traffic goes to the Internet directly.
This vastly improves the end-user experience without exposing the environment to more risk
and ensures security policies are implemented in the environment.
