Implementing a Robust Hybrid WAN Solution with Secure 5G and SD-WAN for Fixed Site Connectivity

In the realm of enterprise networking, the evolution towards more dynamic and flexible solutions is a response to the increasing demands of modern business operations. When considering such a solution to run your distributed business, it is important to look for vendors that offer a suite of solutions that cater to the needs of branch networks through Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) technology.

The Challenge of Modern Branch Networks

Branch networks today face a myriad of challenges. The proliferation of cloud applications and IoT devices necessitates direct Internet access. The surge in voice and video traffic, along with the need for rapid deployment of temporary and long-term branch sites, demands a network solution that is both resilient and agile. Moreover, the dispersion of sensitive information across the WAN edge calls for stringent security measures.

Software-Defined Branch Networks

MACH Networks addresses these challenges with its all-in-one network solutions that are tailored for the evolving needs of branch locations. The approach integrates wireless flexibility for primary and failover WAN connectivity, leveraging the cost-effectiveness and performance of 4G LTE and the future-proofing benefits of Gigabit LTE and 5G.

Key Features of SD-WAN Solutions:

•    Wireless Flexibility: These solutions provide the option to use 4G LTE as a primary or secondary connection, ensuring continuous connectivity and reducing the impact of network downtime.

•    Software-Defined Branches: The adoption of SD-WAN is crucial for creating an all-wireless and software-defined branch. This technology optimizes path selection and traffic steering across various WAN sources, including metered links like LTE.

•    Remote Management: MACH’s Fully Managed WWAN offers a centralized platform for deploying, managing, and monitoring networks at distributed locations, simplifying the task for IT teams, saving resources both human and financial.

•    Integrated Security: The best solutions come with built-in security features such as application-based control, firewalls, threat detection, and content filtering, safeguarding the network against potential threats.

•    Scalability and Flexibility: The ability to add access points, IoT Edge Computing, and other applications remotely through the cloud enhances the scalability and flexibility of branch networks.

The Benefits of MACH’s SD-WAN:

•    Operational Efficiency: By abstracting and separating the control and data planes, SD-WAN allows for automated deployment and streamlined management, leading to operational efficiencies and cost savings.

•    Agility and Responsiveness: SD-WAN solutions enable networks to be more responsive and agile, adapting to changing business needs with reduced complexity.

•    Cost-Effectiveness: SD-WAN provides an alternative to expensive MPLS lines, offering reliable connectivity at a lower cost.

•    Rapid Deployment: MACH’s SD-WAN solutions enable quickly deployed Day-1 networks that can route traffic based on various criteria to ensure maximum availability and uptime.
