Frequently Asked Questions

What is SD-WAN?2020-10-07T22:40:30+00:00

SD-WAN is the ongoing enhancement of network technologies consisting of centralized visibility and policy control, and advanced traffic shaping. These network functions working in conjunction simplifies network administration, allows for better network security, and when coupled with multiple high speed circuits and Wireless WAN services, enables networks to be faster and more resilient than ever before.

What problems does SD-WAN solve?2020-10-07T22:41:03+00:00

The decision process for a WAN refresh has traditionally been to assign weightages to the following factors: Cost, Speed, Security, and Reliability.Businesses then had to choose two or three out of the four factors that are critical to their operations. Now, depending on the SD-WAN solution and circuit availability, businesses are able to deploy networks with optimized cost, speed, security and reliability.

Is SD-WAN better than MPLS?2020-10-07T22:41:34+00:00

Comparing SD-WAN to MPLS is like comparing a car to a highway. SD-WAN is a platform that allows businesses to make the most of the underlying transport, regardless of what the underlying technology (such as MPLS) is. The real question is: Does SD-WAN make MPLS antiquated? In our opinion, the answer is yes.

Why do I need a managed SD-WAN service provider?2020-10-07T22:42:04+00:00

While SD-WAN is a great technology, there are still a lot of underpinnings to a WAN network that work best when handled by an experienced managed service provider such as: carrier circuit provisioning and support, network design, network monitoring and maintenance, break/fix dispatch, and on site installation. A managed SD-WAN service provider such as Interface allows businesses to have a more consistent, scalable and reliable solution, from a single source.

What are some of the drawbacks of SD-WAN?2020-10-07T22:42:56+00:00

Some of the drawbacks of SD-WAN have more to do with the implementation than deficiencies of the technology. Because SD-WAN is easier to design and deploy than a lot of legacy technologies, SD-WAN projects can be hobbled by :

  • Sub-optimal security design due to self administration
  • Sub-optimal carrier options due to lack of carrier relationships
  • Complex and inaccurate circuit invoicing from numerous carriers
  • Prolonged outages due to lack of staff to resolve circuit issues
What is SASE and how is it different from SD-WAN?2020-10-07T22:43:39+00:00

SASE is a framework for security and network technologies that offers best practices for security design, depending on the underlying services architecture. SD-WAN is a core component of SASE but the two are not mutually exclusive. SD-WAN provides the transport layer in a SASE framework.
