Among the many options offered by managed networks, we find basic access and network transport services like traditional Wide Area Networks (WANs) and Local Area Networks (LAN), as well as state-of-the-art solutions, such as software-defined wide and local area networks (SD-WANs and SD-LANs).

What is a cloud-managed SDN network?

SDNOne of the consequences of the new digital economy is the increase in the complexity of business network infrastructures during the last decade, both for large companies and SMEs. In response to this new situation, companies have been adopting software-defined networks (SDN) as the hegemonic model of network architecture. This phenomenon, together with the rise of cloud computing has resulted in what is known as SDN cloud networking.


SDN resellers – the advantages of automatically configuring SDN networks network infrastructure for a business can be a complicated task due to the degree of complexity of this type of services – to say nothing of configuring and starting up the network.

However, there are a number of ways to simplify and streamline the process through things like centralized management and automatic network configuration, scheduling repetitive tasks, receiving technical assistance to deal with complex problems, etc.

Resellers or system integrators, who normally carry out the work in the field (i.e., installing technological solutions at end customer sites), are also in charge of configuring the equipment, and subsequently of tasks like technical assistance, maintenance, etc.
