Posted September 23rd, 2019

New SD-WAN solution allows companies to manage their network more efficiently with 24/7 support.

Bogota, September 23, 2019. The digitalization of companies requires the optimization of processes that are directly linked to secure, agile and efficient connections. This is one of the challenges that companies face today in order to improve their competitiveness in a globalized market. With this in mind, the telecommunications and business technology solutions company, C&W Business, a Liberty Latin America company, presents its most recent solution SD- WAN. 

In order to stay competitive in an increasingly global environment, companies need secure, agile and efficient connections. SD-WAN enables them to seamlessly add new locations to their networks, run network-wide updates easily and benefit from routing flexibility, while using diverse types of connectivity. This end-to-end solution, which includes design connectivity, security, deployment, monitoring, notifications and ongoing support, allows enterprises to offer a better experience to their clients.  

With SD-WAN, IT departments can manage their networks in a reliable and secure way. They have greater flexibility to use and combine different types of connectivity technologies, such as broadband, LTE, dedicated Internet, and even MPLS integration. Through the management and monitoring portal, they can generate personalized reports. 

According to the latest Gartner research1 64% of surveyed businesses plan to implement SD-WAN. The main benefits they seek are higher availability, performance, flexibility and agility in their network, which would result in fewer or no interruptions, and therefore, lower expenses.

“We are excited to provide companies with smart connectivity options, giving them control, visibility, and critical insights into their networks.  With the launch of SD-WAN, we are setting a new standard for B2B connectivity services in our region”, said Pedro Rodrigues, Director of B2B Connectivity & Security Solutions in C&W Business. 

A study conducted by Versa Networks on a financial industry company that chose SD-WAN to transform its architecture showed that it reduced maintenance and support costs by 50%2. In addition, it improved the voice and video experience, resulting in greater efficiency in the use of internal applications.

The SD-WAN solution is a catalyst for the digital transformation of organizations, increasing security, productivity and profitability in operations, allowing them to become more competitive in the market.
