Create high performing networks to support an outstanding student experience

Students and tutors are using a greater number of cloud-based software applications and storage. This is increasing demand and affecting network latency. In addition, identifying vulnerabilities has become even more important.

Secure SD-WAN supports universities grappling with the delivery of outstanding student experience while managing the challenges of a large network estate.

    What is SD-WAN?

    A Software-defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) is a virtual WAN architecture enabling organisations to securely connect users to applications using any available connectivity option, such as MPLS, broadband and cellular. It uses centralised software, rather than distributed hardware, to route traffic intelligently and manage security more efficiently.

    How is the Redcentric SD-WAN different?

    The Redcentric SD-WAN stands head and shoulders above the competition. We work with a leading security vendor so you can benefit from enterprise-grade security built-in, while leveraging new connectivity options without adding to your attack-surface.
