The Problem

Enterprise WANs have traditionally used MPLS and single function CPE for connectivity and security. The result continues to be high cost and inflexible architectures, slow responses to service change requirements, and difficulty in deploying and managing proprietary hardware.

Our Approach

By transitioning from purely MPLS and single function CPE to SD-WAN+ and software-defined security (Security+), enterprises can harness a more flexible approach to delivering WAN and security services, reducing TCO significantly while increasing IT agility and ensuring compliance.

Our Solution 

CallTower has globally deployed SD-WAN software applications and security functions from Versa Networks. A carrier-grade solution, SD-WAN+ and Security+ are built within CallTower’s global network architecture and seamlessly integrated with their worldwide cloud-communications framework. This combination creates an unparalleled, comprehensive suite of enterprise-class managed services.

The Result 

SD-WAN+ and Security+ service offers advanced network design flexibility, application prioritization, zero-touch provisioning and security services over both public Internet, private WANs and existing MPLS and broadband networks. Through its management portal, CallTower provides a premium user experience with real-time access to applications routing, network performance, next-gen firewall settings and advanced network analytics.

IMPROVE WAN

Up to 80% Lower TCO

By standardizing on CallTower’s SD-WAN+ and Security+ services customers can slash their infrastructure Capex spend.

Customers can significantly lower their Opex by reducing or eliminating branch office truck rolls, shortening help desk and troubleshooting time, and easily integrating new services into existing deployments. Usage-based pricing ensures customers only pay for what they use.

Improve Performance & Security

CallTower’s SD-WAN+ services automatically identify over 2500 applications and assign the appropriate WAN access technology based on business policies. The result is better application performance and lower overall WAN costs.

For stronger branch security, additional security functions can be applied to traffic using direct Internet access, while MPLS traffic may not require it.

IT Agility – Deploy in Hours vs. Weeks

CallTower enables customers to roll out large-scale SD-WAN+ and branch security deployments quickly and without complex or proprietary hardware.

As a result, new deployments can be designed and validated in days. Network IT teams can adopt an agile, software-based flex model and remove the provisioning time and hardware dependency of traditional WAN and security architectures.

Simplify Support & Operations

With zero-touch provisioning and centralized management, IT teams can significantly reduce the time required to manage networking and security services at the branch, resulting in up to 50% opex savings.

In addition, CallTower’s SD-WAN+ Analytics (big data) analytics software provides customers with deep visibility and real-time intelligence into all networking and security functions to further simplify ongoing operations.
