How Businesses Can Save Money With SD-WAN Technology

Business owners know that “Adapt or Die” is the number one rule of the marketplace. You either get on with the times or you go bust. That is why more and more of them are moving towards SD-WAN technology. After all, according to a report by Gartner, almost one third of all enterprises will be using it by 2019. No one wants to get left behind.

But what exactly is SD-WAN technology? It stands for a Software Defined Wide Area Network. This technology separates the network hardware from its control mechanism which allows the administrators to monitor and manage the corporate WAN from the company’s headquarters. This is a game-changer for businesses that have several branches. Why?

Businesses that adopt SD-WAN technology can significantly reduce their operating expenses. For example, it removes the need for hiring technicians to install and upgrade the system in each branch because the team at the headquarters can do it remotely via centralised user interface. This can save you a lot of money.

Businesses that didn’t make the switch to SD-WAN in time will have a hard time keeping up with businesses that did. A hardware-based solution simply can’t compete with a software-based solution. Plus, adopting an SD-WAN solution makes a company leaner, and those savings can then be funneled back into the business, providing an additional advantage.

Don’t miss this opportunity to gain a competitive edge. Companies like Aequos offer agile and scalable solutions that are tailored to your requirements and can accomodate any future growth. Forget about hiring technical specialists, investing in hardware that quickly becomes obsolete, or pouring money into the never-ending search for up-to-date solutions.

You can see why 2019 is set to be the year of SD-WAN. Does it really make sense to waste time, energy and money by making your team work with an obsolete technology? It doesn’t serve you, it doesn’t serve them, and it certainly doesn’t serve the company’s bottom line. So leave the corporate WAN management to the professionals who will monitor your network 24/7 and maximize its uptime. Let them take care of it while you focus on what really matters.
