The WAN of the future is modular

Every company needs its own individual WAN. We put your network together in a modular fashion – using MPLS, internet, and ethernet.

WAN as part of a digital modular system

A Wide Area Network (WAN) forms the neural pathways between a company’s different locations as well as the hotline to partners and cloud services. Digitization means a wide variety of applications are dependent on the WAN: networked machines, for example, transmit their status to the cloud, and employees work across sites using collaboration tools. The transport network therefore always needs to provide the right solution – whether MPLS, Internet or Ethernet, local or central cloud connectivity, fixed or cellular network.

MPLS provides a solid foundation for the WAN of the future

An MPLS VPN transmits data quickly, reliably, and securely and is perfectly suited to serve as a core network for a WAN. Different technologies are used to connect locations and private and public clouds, based on requirements: MPLS, Internet, or Ethernet.

Until now, public clouds in particular have been networked with the WAN via the Internet. But the performance of Internet VPNs always depends on the current network load. For time-critical applications such as video conferencing, it’s worth ensuring extra-powerful cloud connectivity using MPLS or Ethernet.

T-Systems provides you with a managed WAN with an MPLS core network. Our managed WAN solutions meets all requirements for site networking, cloud connectivity, mobility, and extranets.

Will SD-WAN mordernise or paralyse your business?

SD-WAN has taken the global and South African market by a storm as CIOs are faced with incessant unattainable cost cuts and excessive bandwidth capacity demands, SD-WAN is believed to be the silver bullet to all apparent WAN shortcomings.

SD-WANs – the in’s and out’s, the who’s and why’s

SD-WANs are touted as the new technology and approach to faster networks and communication infrastructure. However, the technology and approach can be complicated and difficult to grasp.

It is important in this day and age of ‘everything connected’ to understand the rationale for SD-WAN’s in simplistic terms, who should be using it and why they should be using it.

We look forward to your project!

Connectivity success stories

Modular networks form the basis

Everybody’s talking about digitization. But without connectivity, the world today would still be relatively analog. Learn more about our four focus areas and the T-Systems integrated approach.
