Windstream's SD-WAN solution is available immediately to customers in Windstream's nationwide service area, and Windstream is seeing strong interest from customers in the retail, banking, professional services, healthcare, manufacturing and financial services industries.Among the benefits of Windstream's SD-WAN solution are:
- Simplified Network Management. By converging voice, data and video applications on the same IP backbone, customers can use existing hardware and available access types to connect locations—reducing capital investment, lowering provisioning time and simplifying technology migration. There are no manual switches to engage or monitor, and automatic updates and upgrades protect against downtime or business interruptions.
- Increased Efficiency and Resiliency. Business policies dynamically prioritize and de-prioritize traffic, making better use of available bandwidth to enhance performance and overall user experience. And dual active links provide redundant and/or diverse connections at each site, increasing network resiliency.
- The Ability to Scale Easily. Standardized low-touch provisioning allows Windstream SD-WAN to scale quickly and seamlessly to accommodate new sites with easily activated circuits.
- Keeping Critical Data Safe. A secure abstracted overlay creates a virtual private network on top of existing connection points. All network traffic is encrypted, for security in a borderless environment.
