CANCOM SD-WAN as a Service

Tailor-made and with WAN from one source

Make your network costs more flexible: With CANCOM SD-WAN aaS we take over overall responsibility for your company’s Wide Area Network (WAN). In addition to the SD-WAN platform as an overlay, we can also offer you all line connections in the WAN, the underlay. You can select the access technologies according to your needs on site – from xDSL or Ethernet to LTE. CANCOM SD-WAN aaS is the first choice if you rely on operating applications in the public cloud – or accessing SaaS applications over the network. Strict network separation due to IT security requirements, as well as increasing the application experience by means of KPI-based routing, are further example scenarios.

Overlay: SD WAN platform

The SD WAN platform is based on approved Cisco technology. Its advantages include very good bandwidth flexibility and high availability. Segmentation, application-based routing and support for local breakouts are also included. IPS / IDS / URL filtering and advanced malware protection are optional. Also selectable: Layer 7 policies as well as WAN or TCP optimization. Further functionalities can be found in the different offer packages. The bandwidth ranges from optimized routing for IaaS, SaaS or co-location to analytics and reporting, cloud security and sandbox.

Underlay: WAN Services from CANCOM

As a carrier-independent network provider with its own MPLS backbone, CANCOM has partnerships with all leading carriers. This enables us to provide you with worldwide WAN connections, including all relevant access technologies, from xDSL and DarkFiber, Ethernet and SFV to radio-based solutions such as WLL, UMTS and LTE.

Application Routing for Public Cloud Users

In hybrid cloud scenarios, for example, CANCOM SD-WAN aaS convinces with application-level routing: data traffic with the applications operated in the CANCOM data center or on-prem remains securely within the network. In contrast, local Internet traffic is routed directly and without detours to the Internet if CRM or another SaaS application from the cloud is used. It is also possible to route traffic for public cloud offers such as Sharepoint online to a virtual SD-WAN router within the network – the focus is always on the most efficient way!

Your value is in focus

In the first step we analyze the existing WAN in a standardized assessment and define concrete requirements. During implementation, rollout and transition we follow approved best practice procedures. Even after going live, we continue to accompany you as your partner throughout the entire lifecycle. For example, with the help of the annual Business Value Check or an Innovation Workshop – so that CANCOM SD-WAN aaS will continue to provide perfect coverage of your requirements in the future!
