Our Platform


SD-WAN

Value proposition

Enterprises have more and more changing needs when it comes to their Wide Area Networks (WANs). The emerging trends of remote working and digital transformation require new flexible and secure network solutions. The increasing  number of branches and work locations and the adoption of cloud services by enterprises call for more dynamic, reliable and cost-effective networks through secure hybrid broadband connectivity. 

SD-WAN is the new network paradigm that applies the Software Define Networking (SDN) approach to WAN in order to simplify the network deployment and management through application driven policies and routing.

Sparkle multi-technology SD-WAN managed solutions support customers to evolve their traditional networks to new connectivity models, providing global reach, with low-latency connections and direct routes to the biggest cloud providers. Through a variety of management options Sparkle can enable customer to smoothly migrate to the SD-WAN paradigm.
