Managed SD-WAN

Small, Medium and Large Enterprise Cloud Networking to Perfection

Managed SD-WAN

Managed SD-WAN is a fully functional South African deployed Cloud SD-WAN. Deployed using high performance networks supported by carrier neutral data centres in JHB, CPT and KZN. Managed SD-WAN includes networking and branch office Edges with Zero touch deployment.

MPLS SD-WAN Overlay

Traditional enterprise network architectures are built around a hub-and-spoke, carrier MPLS networks anchored on legacy premise based data centres. VxCloud managed SD-WAN provides one of the best MPLS overlay networks with multiple features to support the client’s transformation to Hybrid Cloud.

SD-WAN Application Visibility

Having a view of all application traffic on the SD- WAN and the ability to control application flow as part of the Managed SD-WAN product. This is a unique feature available to clients. VxCloud will ensure that applications work without interruption, in the case of link failure or errors such as jitter, delay and packet loss.

SD-WAN Advanced Features

Cloud Gateways provide secure dedicated peering to industry leading cloud service providers with AWS, Azure, O365 and Google Cloud. Customer traffic can be routed to SaaS and IaaS through the closest gateway or edge location, lowering round trip times and increasing application performance.

SD-WAN Advanced Features

Hybrid Azure Integration

SD-WAN Azure peering includes Express Route, VpnGw1, VpnGw2, VpnGw3, Basic and Virtual SD-WAN Appliances. Architecture designs include addressing the clients Azure cloud access, latency improved application performance and branch office requirements.

Hybrid Azure Integration

SD-WAN Scope

No matter what the company size, or amount of legacy infrastructure, VxCloud will work to solve any architecture and deployment issues moving to a hybrid and then dedicated cloud infrastructure. VxCloud is enabling the Cloud to support business growth for tomorrow.

SD-WAN Scope

SD-WAN Edge Cloud Security

Enabling integrated virtual firewall, URL and Web content security filtering provided by Zscaler and Fortinet. User and application based policies, malware detection and secure content scanning are integrated and managed as part of the VxCloud Managed SD-WAN and Cyber SOC-as-a-Service.

SD-WAN Network Peering

Managed SD-WAN includes the integration with Level 2 VLAN’s, MPLS and Internet Peering partners. SD-WAN is already peering with leading ISPs and services in NAPAfrica. Peering agreements with ISPs and intelligent routing providers are in place to reduce SD-WAN latency and support Cloud VPN services.

SD-WAN over LTE

We tested the Managed SD-WAN service on the South African LTE landscape (Vodacom, Telkom, RAIN, Cell C and MTN) for over a year and we have created a unique set of routing solutions and support procedures to compliment the VxCloud SD-WAN over LTE managed service.

Branch Office Network

Managed SD-WAN is best suited for the South African SME and Branch Office market. The ability to combine expensive MPLS networking and cheaper internet such as LTE and Internet Broadband is supporting the branch office and allowing for digital transformed voice, video and data enablement.

Branch Office Network

Cost Effective SD-WAN

We have deployed SD-WAN solutions for small client sites and clients with multiple branches across remote and local locations in South Africa. SD-WAN appliances and networking solutions are provided on a monthly services cost including all levels of support and escalation. Please contact VxCloud for a consulting engagement.

Frequently Asked Questions

VxCloud SD-WAN is focused at clients that have invested in cloud applications such as O365, Google Salesforce and Others. The internet is used as the network and measures are put into place to provide bandwidth optimization and Quality of Experience.
VxCloud SD-WAN architecture has the ability to coexist with the installed network, as well as deploy in phased stages. VxCloud unique cloud network of distributed gateways offered as a service further enables incremental integration into existing networks. As an Example, data centres can be connected without installing nor replacing any equipment in the data centre via secure tunnels from existing routers to the cloud network. Bring your Own Internet or MPLS and we can integrate the VxCloud SD-WAN.
VxCloud SD-WAN delivers holistic application “Quality of Experience” with local prioritization and bandwidth allocation as well as steering between links and remediation of link quality issues. Granular application recognition, simple business prioritization policies and continuous monitoring of available link capacity and quality drive VxCloud Dynamic Multi-Path Optimization. Application flows can be shifted on a per-packet basis, mid session, between different links or split across links. This ability combined with on-demand remediation including error correction and jitter buffering enables use of broadband Internet as an integral part of an enterprise grade WAN. Priority or network sensitive traffic eg VOIP, video conferencing, etc no longer must require nor be limited to private/MPLS circuits to meet SLA objectives. The Edge can coexist with or replace the branch edge router.
No latency is introduced. Our SD-WAN design has all forwarding decisions made locally, for all circumstances including blackouts and application performance brownouts, based on local path and performance metrics monitoring. The endpoints that are in the data path add less than 1msec of latency.
The data plane with all tunnel endpoints will continue full functions even when separated from the control plane, as a principle of our SD-WAN design. Only policy and configuration updates from the VxCloud Orchestrator will be temporarily unavailable.
VxCloud network delivers the expected benefits of cloud scaling, redundancy and pay-as-you-go flexibility. Edge endpoints monitor VxCloud gateway availability, as well as path performance metrics, and immediately switch to alternate VxCloud gateways that are deployed as redundancy.
We use tools to provide accurate TCO calculations based on workload scanning, planning and forecasting. These tool can be used once off or continuously in order to manage cloud based workloads and cost.

The SD-WAN solution can use any network to create enterprise based networking services. The perception that MPLS is still the best network is changing and no longer applies to services that are accessed in the cloud.
Client can phone 087-815-1000 to log a call and email admin@vxcloud.co.za. Select the option for support and a technician will provide the required assistance.
We have opened a new era in networking and the options that are available to clients are growing each day, this includes security, unified communications, faster cloud access and private cloud integration. As a result of this we have created a Cloud Network in South Africa that performs better than any standard network available.
