A new way to network that adapts to your business needs
Thanks to the digital revolution, we are experiencing a disruption of traditional business models. Vast, siloed corporate structures are giving way to highly agile enterprises, no longer confined by geography, that is built to respond quickly to fast-changing markets. Networks must be equally responsive. In this time of business transition, future-proofing is a priority.
Today’s enterprise networks are not driving enough business value in the modern economy. To drive business value, all IT resources must support dynamic business requirements such as expansion into new locales - including the network.read more
Existing networking technology, hardware and expertise are expensive. Enterprises are dependent on physical equipment which means cumbersome installation and constant maintenance. As data traffic between remote offices and sites gets more substantial, investing in legacy network technologies may not be the best financial fit and it no longer guarantees a quick connection. Consumers, clients, and stakeholders no longer accept ‘the network is down’ as an explanation for service or business failure.
Business information and communications technologies are becoming virtualised services hardware does not enable IT managers to be pragmatic in their responses to management requests, or to increase the resilience of their infrastructure investments. That is why the future lies in virtualized services.
Remember how the cloud transformed enterprise data storage and management? Imagine a similar transformation for business networks:
Unified virtual network - Link public and private clouds, or bare metal infrastructures into a single seamless virtual network. Extensible network functions - deploy virtualized network functions, such as firewalls or Wide Area Network (WAN) accelerators, onto the core virtual network. Applications and services - Instantly deploy and deliver applications to user communities at the edges of the network.
Make sure your network adds value to your business Smart WAN from Smart Communication is a unified, virtual WAN and network function solution as agile as your enterprise. It is a plug-in-and-go solution so that you can quickly take advantage of:
- Reduced costs by enabling alternate, cheaper transport networks.
- Less complexity through easier device management.
- Increased speed of setup and configuration, which means more productivity and scale.
More control as SmartWAN delivers one corporate network with security, usage and other policies managed centrally. SmartWAN features SD WAN multi-tenant controller delivers cloud-based, centralised network management. You can access policy management, network control and visibility, performance monitoring and event logging through a user-friendly dashboard.
The zero touch provisioning feature enables rapid deployment:
A Fortigate device ships to the branch office. When the Fortigate is connected, it automatically calls home to the cloud controller over secure Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS) for automatic configuration. VPN tunnels can also be established over challenging global transport network configurations thanks to Network Address Translation (NAT) traversal support. VPN tunnels are established once network policies and functions are pushed down to the FortiGate device.
