Extending your Network with FatPipe’s SD Hybrid WAN Access Diversity

Historically, extending your network redundantly and securely from the LAN to the WAN is a challenge for network managers.  Vulnerable sections of the WAN are at the branches and the last mile, where many network outages and bottlenecks occur.  As companies turn to the cloud for business critical productivity, redundant and secure connections are crucial in extending their networks to remote sites.

FatPipe Offers Versatility and Cost Savings

Over the past 16 years, FatPipe, the original software-defined WAN technology vendor, has provided secure connectivity for the IT industry.  By developing innovative WAN solutions, FatPipe offers options for private and public connections for site-to-site networking. Typically, businesses employ dedicated/expensive MPLS circuits to inter-connect branch offices to data centers.  However, recent quality and availability improvements of broadband and wireless (3G/4G/LTE) services give enterprises more options.  For example, lower cost alternatives augment the reliability of WANs and build in redundancy to enhance the user experience for cloud-hosted applications.  These options make organizations more versatile and cost-effective in connecting branch offices while still relying on dedicated links to send mission-critical data.

Network Redundancy Through Access Diversity

Access diversity can provide link redundancy by introducing a secondary line to your WAN connection.  Public broadband can serve as a low-cost alternative to dedicated Internet and service provider connections. Such alternatives help sites that are locked in at the last mile and have only one ISP option.  Access diversity means enterprises can choose 3G/4G/LTE, satellite, cable or fiber for their secondary lines.

By offering diverse access options, FatPipe helps network managers meet the challenge of extending their networks across the WAN.  Requirements of the enterprise dictate network decisions rather than the restrictions of dedicated MPLS circuits or service provider lock-in.  Network link redundancy, secure connectivity and access diversity effectively address current concerns such as rising costs and security, as well as future worries about growth and complexity.
