The global IP VPN challenge

Managing multi-site corporate networks is a complex undertaking. Even major telecommunications players do not own and operate their own fully comprehensive worldwide networks. Instead, they have to purchase additional infrastructure resources from third parties. As a result, the provisioning of new services can be slow and laborious. What’s more, service features and quality vary from region to region. But in fast-moving markets, international businesses require agile data networks.

Network services provisioned with speed and simplicity

Data networks are finally catching up with the dynamics of the digital age. As a member of the ngena alliance, T-Systems offers multinational corporations standardized network services practically anywhere in the world – provisioned with speed and simplicity: Smart SD-WAN is an international, multi-carrier IP-VPN offering, based on SD WAN technology. These network services are of outstanding and consistent quality, available rapidly and reliably, and are easy to manage. Products and processes are standardized worldwide and are administered via a central platform.

Smart SD-WAN – the digitization network

To survive and thrive in the digital era, international organizations must be highly responsive to market changes. Their calls for agility – not only for the business, but also for their ICT resources, including their data networks. New sites, for instance, require fast access to the corporate network. And public-cloud services necessitate the timely provision of regional or local Internet breakouts.

New imperatives for IP VPNs

Today’s corporate networks are chiefly MPLS VPNs – as this technology delivers high availability and performance, and can be tailored to specific needs. But implementing, or modifying, an international MPLS VPN requires patience: the provider has to configure the network manually, and coordinate activities with other carriers. As a result, corporate networks frequently fail to keep pace with evolving requirements.
At the same time, there is increasing adoption of VPNs via the public Internet – for example, in order to integrate smaller sites. Internet connections can generally be implemented quickly, at low cost, and almost anywhere – but these strength come at a price: less dependable transmission quality, fluctuating in line with data traffic. And unlike MPLS, it is not possible to prioritize and guarantee a defined quality of service for latency-sensitive applications. So businesses faced a stark choice between a high-quality MPLS VPN or a less-than-perfect Internet-based solution. Until now, that is.

High performance meets high agility

Smart SD-WAN from T-Systems combines the best of both worlds. Through software-defined networking (SDN) and network function virtualization (NFV), Smart SD-WAN ensures standout agility. New services and connections can be deployed far faster, and seamlessly integrated carrier networks mean IP VPN coverage for all four corners of the globe. There is a portfolio of standardized access designs that allow each company to choose a backbone connection that suits their priorities in terms of quality and cost. It is also possible to define transmission quality for specific applications. And for total peace of mind, T-Systems assumes complete responsibility for VPN administration – including personal, around-the-clock service management.
As a result, Smart SD-WAN is as agile and simple as Internet VPN, and for many requirements, as powerful and professional as MPLS. Smart SD-WAN can be deployed as a stand-alone or alongside Internet and MPLS VPN. No matter what the choice, the solution enables enterprises to focus on their business and digital transformation goals. Because Smart SD-WAN delivers simplicity, speed and flexibility – all in one.
