Improve your network’s agility, optimize network performance, and reduce costs with SaskTel’s SD-WAN: the most sought-after WAN technology.

Does your business or organization need to simplify your multi-branch WAN network? SaskTel’s Software Defined WAN (SD-WAN) is a managed networking solution that gives businesses WAN link flexibility, scalability and self-healing, as well as visibility into network performance.

SD-WAN can allow your organizations to achieve the best application performance and resilience across your entire network, simplifying operations and lowering overall costs. SaskTel has the expertise and capability to meet all your network optimization requirements.

SD-WAN can manage network traffic automatically and dynamically across the most efficient network paths. These decisions are based on network conditions, traffic security and quality-of-service (QoS) requirements. SD-WAN eliminates the problem of fixed connectivity by building an overlay network in software that can dynamically respond to changing locations, loads and conditions.

Traditional WANs rely on physical routers to connect remote or branch users to applications that are hosted in data centres. Whereas, SD-WAN separates the control and management processes from the underlying networking hardware, making them available as software that can be easily configured and deployed.

SD-WAN can provide your business with a superior application experience, end-to end visibility and security.

Secure SD-WAN

By combining SD-WAN functionality, as well as security features of a firewall into a single device, Secure SD-WAN eliminates the need for multiple devices and reduces complexity while delivering an improved user experience, instant ROI, and simplified operations. Self-healing WAN capabilities, advanced routing, an integrated next-generation firewall, and centralized orchestration accelerate digital transformation at any scale.

SaskTel’s Secure SD-WAN provides consistent security enforcement across all edges by combining a next-generation firewall with advanced SD-WAN networking capabilities.
