Proven SD-WAN for Hybrid Networks is Here Today

The promise of software-defined wide area networks (SD-WANs) has been touted for several years, but most organizations have yet to adopt the technology: fewer than 1% of enterprises have deployed SD-WANs as of the end of 2015 (Market Guide for Software-Defined WAN, Gartner, Dec 1, 2015). A recent survey of IT professionals by consulting group Ashton, Metzler & Associates (When will SD-WANs ‘cross the chasm’?, Jim Metzler, PhD, TechTarget, 2016) reveals some of the obstacles that prevent greater adoption of SD-WAN in organizations:

  • 25% of respondents are concerned about how to integrate software-defined networks into their current infrastructure
  • 25% of respondents feel there isn’t a strong business case for implementing SD-WAN
  • 25% of respondents believe enabling technologies for SD-WAN are immature

With the introduction of the industry-first Avaya SDN Fx™ + FatPipe® SD-WAN integrated solution, Avaya customers can now expect the simplicity, security and scalability of SDN Fabric Connect in their LANs extended via FatPipe across the entire Unified Communications network or hybrid WAN. This converged solution from two technology innovators addresses the main concerns about implementing a software-defined network:

  • Support for a multitude of connection types and legacy systems – MPLS, broadband, wireless, satellite, T1/E1 and more—allows for cost-effective, in-place implementation that easily integrates with an organization’s network investments
  • Multi-line compression and WAN optimization increase bandwidth availability of existing lines by up to 70%, yielding large cost savings on expensive MPLS lines; and aggregation of a variety of paths presents options for additional cost savings and extra capacity for future growth, thereby strengthening the business case for an SD-WAN deployment
  • With 11 patents and 180 technology claims, FatPipe has been in the SD-WAN business for more than 15 years and has successfully deployed 10,000+ devices world-wide, thereby assuring enterprises that the SD-WAN technology is mature and ready to implement

As connected devices proliferate, data flows continue to expand and security concerns rise. Software-defined networks solve many of the problems that come with the increasing complexity of today’s networks. Legitimate concerns about SD-WAN have hindered wide-spread adoption to date, but the Avaya SDN Fx + FatPipe SD-WAN solution alleviates issues and presents enterprises with options for a next-generation hybrid wide area network. From Datacenter-to-Desktop™, Avaya SDN Fx + FatPipe SD-WAN delivers the benefits of software-defined networking today.

FatPipe Networks, the Inventor of SD-WANs, Recommended by Gartner as Offering One of the Market’s Most Advanced WAN Path Controllers With WAN Optimization Features

Gartner Recommends That Companies Should Consider FatPipe for WAN Optimization When It Is Beneficial to Combine WAN Optimization Features With Good WAN Path Selection Control Capabilities

SALT LAKE CITY, UT–(Marketwired – April 30, 2015) – FatPipe Networks, the creator of software defined networks for wide area connectivity and hybrid WANs, today announced that Gartner commented that “FatPipe offers one of the market’s most advanced WAN path controllers and companies should consider FatPipe for WAN optimization when it is beneficial to combine basic WAN optimization features with good WAN path selection control capabilities.” They listed FatPipe’s strengths as:

  • FatPipe is one of the leading vendors for WAN link load balancing and has very good WAN path control capabilities
  • FatPipe supports comprehensive application identification, classification and control capabilities
  • FatPipe offers detailed network visibility and reporting capabilities
  • The FatPipe solution is relatively easy to operate, as all functions are integrated onto one platform, and managed with a single high level user interface
  • FatPipe has a good range of commonly used WAN optimization features, including substantial storage for caching

Gartner continued on FatPipe’s strength, referencing its “simple to operate” solution that integrates traditional WAN optimization features with WAN path control integrated onto one platform managed with a single high-level user interface.

According to Gartner, “the WAN optimization market remains dynamic, gradually integrating other functionality, such as WAN path controllers.” FatPipe has been the leader in the integration. For the past 15 years FatPipe has lead the industry in software defined WAN path selection and redundancy, improving the overall performance and reliability of the WAN and since 2012, introduced WAN optimization as a feature on FatPipe MPVPN and FatPipe IPVPN.

“FatPipe is pleased to be recognized again in the Magic Quadrant for WAN Optimization with its products that provide a combination of WAN optimization with multi-path WAN load-balancing, failover, security and Quality of Service for a highly converged, SD-WAN edge product line,” said FatPipe’s CTO, Ms. Sanch Datta. “FatPipe’s vision of providing more than just WAN optimization puts us at the forefront of this market. We are able to fully meet the needs for the modern corporate network as businesses continue to move to hybrid wide area networks to address cloud based services and open more branch offices. With a large number of Fortune 1000 companies, and large institutions having deployed FatPipe for over a decade, our proven and time tested products lead the way in new WAN frontiers.”

Network Outages Again Today

FatPipe was hit with numerous phone calls today by potential customers whose primary ISP connection went down.  After some research we discovered several tier 1 ISP’s were experiencing outages today.  FatPipe customers are a lot less vulnerable to these type of outages.

FatPipe products combine multiple data lines from multiple data providers into one single fail proof network. In case, one line fails, the data is automatically re-routed through other available data network providers. Many Fortune 1000 companies and numerous institutions use FatPipe to avoid such a problem.

The FatPipe enabled redundant network provides the following advantages:

  1. 99.99+% network redundancy
  2. Automatic fail over of VoIP, VPN, and Thin clients in case a line fails without dropping the sessions
  3. Network redundancy and reliability for a global network
  4. Multi-line WAN optimization and acceleration to maximize data flow including ritualized software for data centers
  5. Automatic fail over to DR sites, without the problems that most cloud services have had when it comes to failing over to a DR site
  6. Smart DNS for in-bound load balancing
  7. For global deployments, there is no need for data provider cooperation as BGP is not needed.
