SD-WAN deployment in a large bank
By using its be.SDx solution, Teldat has been able to migrate the installed base to SD-WAN technology, implementing the solution in 2,700 customer branches.
The customer began by deploying Teldat Atlas-60 devices. By installing this technology, the customer is able to increase the efficiency and comfort of their offices and employees, as well as gain flexibility for two reasons. First, with high-tech modular equipment in place, it can now be compatible with the many scenarios it faces. Second, the customer currently has an MPLS-based communications network but knows that it will have to migrate its network infrastructure to the cloud in a not-too-distant future. Teldat devices are designed to carry out a gradual migration to SD-WAN scenarios, reusing previously installed hardware.
Consequently, when the company finally needs to implement an SD-WAN solution, as part of its technological development and digital transformation, Teldat will stand out as a strong option to bet on. The reasons for needing to deploy SD-WAN technology in the customer’s network architecture, were (among others) to increase network agility, streamline data management, provide network visibility at the application layer, and reduce the cost of deploying new branches.
The be.SDx solution is made up of several modules, of which the bank enjoys the following:
The “Base” module forms the basic framework of the overall solution. It has the possibility of being used individually and operate a network infrastructure with conventional concepts. Mass operations (e.g., software updates, new configurations, etc.) are possible without the need for specialized technicians. The automatic provisioning mechanism allows any number of branch offices to be rolled out quickly, securely and reliably.
The “Controller” module is the orchestrator of the SD-WAN approach used in be.SDx. This module generates the network abstraction level, the overlay, and it is automatically encrypted and secure, thus reducing complexity while optimizing and controlling data flow, especially at the application level. This ensures that business-critical applications are always delivered with the highest possible performance and, in this case, with the option of using costly MPLS connections when needed, leveraging all the massive management tools provided by the Base.
The «Visualizer» module allows detailed recognition and analysis of the different data flows within the system. It can easily differentiate between services and data flows, even at an application level. Fully customizable dashboards deliver the most in-depth visibility, enabling accurate problem analysis and proactive prevention of emerging sources of error, or the detection of potential internal or external attacks by providing information about traffic (IP address and country of origin).
- Update the installed base and migrate it to SD-WAN technology
- Support for multiple WAN lines or MPLS in active-active mode
- Maintain MPLS infrastructure as backup
- Reduce costs and achieve very high yields
- Greater reliability and agility in communications
- Network visibility at the application level to make it more efficient and prioritize relevant traffic
