Embark on a journey into the intricacies of leveraging Broadband (BB) as an underlay for Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) with this case study. Let us explore the complexity of using broadband as an underlay to obtain the cost economics from this mechanism. Enterprises face unique hurdles in their transformation from MPLS to Broadband, like constraints of IP addresses, IPV4 scarcity and the operational intricacies associated with dealing with multiple local operators.
Let us explore how the OneX solution helps resolve many of these challenges by providing an optimal migration plan to SD-WAN over BB underlays.
Leveraging Broadband (BB) as an underlay enables the development of a cost-effective foundation for Software-Defined Wide Area Networks (SD-WAN) through high throughputs and pervasive reach. However, the path is not without its challenges, weaving a host of complexities that demand careful consideration:
IP persistence allows the allocation of IP addresses to a location through a central pool without dependency on the service provider or the nature of WAN.
Key benefits of IP persistence:
IP persistence is the missing piece in your SD-WAN puzzle. It unlocks a world of operational freedom, unshackling you from the limitations of traditional solutions. With OneX, you can finally harness your SD-WAN’s full potential, confident in your connections’ unwavering strength.
Micro-segmentation allows for setting rules on the network based on LAN ports/Wi-Fi access points. This includes restrictions on access to applications, Mac-Binding and User access control through integration with Active user directories like Lightweight directory access protocol (LDAP).
Benefits of Micro-Segmentation
Micro-segmentation is a unique feature that goes beyond traditional on-prem or cloud-based next-generation firewalls by allowing customization of security policies at an individual/ team level. It prevents attacks enabled via social phishing by necessitating access to machines and networks during working hours.
Implementation and Outcomes
OneX is leading digital transformation in companies across BFSI, Manufacturing, Wind farms and Contact Centers, ensuring the widespread utility of the application. In all cases, OneX provides a seamless migration from existing MPLS-based underlays to a Leased Line/Broadband-based migration with enhanced routing policies that move beyond grouping applications into Class of Service (COS) to application-level rules. Notably, OneX demonstrates its prowess as single-box solutions featuring Unified Threat Management (UTM) capabilities enabling migration of on-site as well as cloud-based firewalls to a single solution, simplifying network architecture.
