MPLS & SD-WAN- Complex Networks

Custom designed MPLS & SD-WAN Complex Network Solutions for Businesses

Complex Networks For Businesses

Complex Networks can be designed to solve a variety of connectivity issues for businesses. For example, a complex network could be designed to enable organisations with many different sites to connect seamlessly whilst also allowing staff who work in different locations to talk easily or to access the same information. Complex networks can also enable businesses to put restrictions on which members of their team can see what and provide remote access solutions.

Would my business benefit from a complex network?

Organisations with many different sites need to connect seamlessly. Staff who work in different locations may need the ability to talk easily or to access the same information.

At the same time, most organisations will want to put restrictions in place to control which staff can see what. Many businesses also need to provide remote access for staff working from home or on the road and staff who work in different locations may need the ability to talk easily or to access the same information.

Building a network for all these scenarios allows you to control the flow of traffic and can offer economies of scale.

International Networks

Some of the most complex networks need to work across several countries. When trying to arrange for connectivity in other regions of the world, organisations are often faced with the challenge of language barriers, different jargon and regulatory regimes. CloudConnX can help cut through the red tape and handle the whole process for you. We work with a network of providers internationally who can deliver a range of services in country.


Multi-protocol Label Switching

What is MPLS?

Multi-protocol Label Switching is a way of ensuring that packets of data reach their destination via a the most optimal route, and that data packets are prioritised appropriately. 
Packets of data are labelled with one or more labels and as each packet passes through the MPLS network labels can be added, replaced or removed. MPLS networks distribute information so that each switch know what to do when it encounters a particular label.

Benefits of MPLS:

Improve Uptime
• MPLS sends data over an alternative path in less than 50 milliseconds (if one exists).
• Reduces manual intervention required to create a WAN, reducing human error.

Improve User Experience
• MPLS offer multiple classes of service, allowing you to apply different settings to different types of traffic. This allows you to prioritise time-sensitive traffic such as VoIP.

Improve Utilisation of Bandwidth
• High priority traffic can 'borrow' capacity from lower priority traffic streams whenever required. On the other hand, when lower priority traffic bursts above its usual bandwidth requirement it can borrow capacity from higher priority traffic that is not being used. 

Reduce Network Congestion
• Sometimes the shortest path between two locations isn't the best one to take due to congestion. MPLS offers traffic engineering options to allow traffic to be sent over non-standard paths reducing latency and further congestion on the path that has been avoided. 

• Create Scalable IP VPN's
With MPLS it is easy to add an additional site to the virtual private network. There is no need to create a complex mesh of tunnels as is common with some traditional approaches.


Software-defined Wide Area Network

What is SD-WAN?

A Software-defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) is a virtual Wide Area Network architecture that allows enterprises to utilise any combination of transport services (including MPLS, LTE and Broadband) to connect users to applications in a secure way. SD-WAN offers a simple, secure way to route traffic with a better quality of experience than the traditional WAN. 
SD-WAN provides a way of connecting branch sites into a private network that can adapt to changing demands.

Benefits of SD-WAN:

Better application experience:
•Improved application performance and increased agility.
• Predictable service for all critical applications
• Dynamically routed application traffic for efficient delivery and improved user experience. 

Improved Security:
• Application-aware policies
• End to end segmentation
• Real-time access control
• Integrated threat protection

Optimised Cloud Connectivity 
• Optimal user experience for Software-as-a-service and cloud applications including Microsoft Office 365 and Salesforce.
• Seamless extension to multiple public clouds

Simplified Management
• Central dashboard 
• Detailed reporting

What is the difference between MPLS and SD WAN?
In broad terms, they do similar things but MPLS typically requires all of the network to be supplied on the same provider. SD WAN can work over multiple providers.
