High Performance. Enterprise Grade.

  • The need to increase bandwidth, better utilize cloud connectivity, and improve security posture is challenging with traditional WAN architectures.

    Gartner estimates that "by 2020, more than 50 percent of WAN edge infrastructure refresh initiatives will be based on SD WAN versus traditional routers."1

  • Cisco and Verizon bring enterprise-grade SD WAN technology to address the problems of modern enterprise applications of today and tomorrow.

  • Control
  • Intelligence
  • Speed
  • Cost
  • Security
  • Unprecedented Control

    Watch Now

    • True control over your network is the exit strategy from dealing with multiple-vendors and network types and the difficulty of seeing the big picture. After all, it takes more than just costly raw bandwidth—control and visibility matter. Embrace better cost expectations, peace of mind, and operational efficiency with Intelligent SD WAN from Cisco and Verizon.

      • Automation technology and eBonding reduce the need for human intervention
      • Transport independent design and APIC-EM make network provisioning easy
      • SD WAN management is optimized with centralized control and reduced operational complexity
  • WAN with Intelligence

    Watch Now

    • Make WAN work smarter—not harder. The traditional model of simply adding bandwidth is hungry for capital and time consuming to implement. Joining MPLS, internet, wireless and broadband together allow you to handle titanic bandwidth requirements without breaking the bank. Intelligent SD WAN from Cisco and Verizon can manage your resources intelligently and prepare for the digital transformation of tomorrow.

      • Use MPLS, Internet, Wireless and Broadband together as a strategic hybrid network
      • Application-aware routing uses bandwidth efficiently
      • Make bandwidth work by allocating data across transports with intelligent path control
  • Speed and Performance

    Watch Now

    • Application usage is evolving at an exponential pace. With mobile devices, IoT, and new bandwidth hungry applications being introduced daily, it's time to stop the traffic jam and build a smarter highway. When you accelerate your network, you accelerate your business. The benefits are endless when end-users are treated to a great experience.

      • Leverages application performance monitoring to reduce network congestion
      • Optimizes application data to use less bandwidth
      • Intelligent caching offloads redundant data transfers
      • Gives users top-notch application performance
  • Reliability Without Cost

    Watch Now

    • While users are frustrated by downtime, CFO's are cutting budgets. Worse still, unreliable and bad experiences can turn away customers. How do you deliver reliability while still reducing cost? The answer is to move to a SD WAN solution that has redundancy built into it's very fabric. Intelligent SD WAN from Cisco and Verizon offer a reliable experience while controlling cost.

      • Average savings of 30-60 minutes of downtime
      • Higher availability and reduced cost
      • Maintains application performance and resiliency
  • World Class Security

    Watch Now

    • With security threats increasing and the rise of ransomware, just one compromised endpoint can give a threat actor access to the whole network. Resiliency is not enough—world class security is an important building block to your network. Intelligent SD WAN from Cisco and Verizon can help you connect users to applications simply, security.
