Enhance Your Network with SD WAN Solutions
Remote Satellite Systems, a leader in advanced satellite and blended communication services, offers Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) solutions to enhance your organization’s network. As a trusted partner to government agencies, military organizations, emergency responders, and enterprises, RSS utilizes SD WAN to transform traditional network infrastructures with enhanced security and reliable connectivity for critical operations.
The Shift from Traditional WAN to SD Wan
The traditional Wide-Area Network (WAN) was designed to connect branch offices and users to applications hosted in data center servers, which relied on dedicated MPLS circuits for security and reliability. However, this approach falls short in today’s cloud-centric world.
As organizations adopt software-as-a-service (SaaS) and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) applications across multiple clouds, the user’s experience suffers due because WANs are ill-equipped to handle the surge in cloud-based traffic. This makes network management more complex and leads to unpredictable application performance and data vulnerabilities. Additionally, connecting to the Internet and cloud exposes enterprises to significant threats and compliance issues, making it challenging to protect critical assets.
Software Defined WAN is an innovative network connectivity approach that reduces operational costs and optimizes resource usage for multi-site deployments. With SD-WAN, network administrators can efficiently utilize bandwidth and ensure superior performance for critical applications without compromising security or data privacy.
The Benefits of SD WAN Technology
SD-WAN plays a crucial role in enhancing our satellite and blended communication services to better meet the need of our clients. The benefits include:
- Optimized Network Performance
SD-WAN enables dynamic traffic routing, load balancing, and link aggregation, ensuring that the available network paths are utilized efficiently to deliver optimal performance, even in satellite communications.
- Resilience and Reliability
For critical applications like emergency response and military operations, network uptime and reliability are paramount. The real-time capability of SD-WAN to switch smoothly between various network links, such as Geosynchronous and Low Earth Orbit satellites, cellular, or terrestrial, guarantees uninterrupted connectivity and reduced downtime in the case of link failures, thereby improving the overall resilience of the network.
- Secure Connectivity
SD-WAN solutions include robust encryption and security features, ensuring that data transmitted over the network is protected against potential threats. This enables secure communication between remote locations and central command centers.
- Centralized Management
SD-WAN provides centralized management and control through a software-based controller, simplifying the deployment, configuration, and monitoring of the network across multiple sites.
- Cost Optimization
Satellite communication can be expensive, especially for large-scale deployments. SD-WAN can help optimize costs by intelligently routing traffic over the most cost-effective links, such as terrestrial connections, while utilizing satellite links when necessary or as a backup.
SD-WAN’s scalable architecture allows for easy integration of new locations and network endpoints without significant disruptions or costly infrastructure upgrades.
- Quality of Service (QoS)
Different applications and users may have varying performance requirements. SD-WAN allows critical application traffic (e.g., real-time video or voice communications) to be prioritized over less latency-sensitive applications.
