StarHub today launches the Managed SD-WAN value series of simple and cost-effective solutions for a fast, resilient, flexible and secure enterprise network in the hybrid era.
Created for enterprises migrating from traditional wide area network (WAN) or multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) to achieve digital agility, the simple and cost-effective solutions come with internet connectivity services and an efficient managed software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) service based on best practices.
The demand for connectivity became even more pronounced following COVID-19. Enterprises need to provide reliable and secure access to the corporate network (including data centers, cloud, SaaS applications or the Internet) for applications, data and other resources for staff working from home or remote locations.
Traditional networks backhauling traffic from the cloud and branch offices to the head office have resulted in latency, inconsistent application performance and a higher risk of exposure to cyber threats. This translates to a loss of productivity and operational disruptions.
“In today's post-pandemic business environment, enterprises need to provide fast, flexible and secure access to corporate networks for remote workers and sites. Starhub's Managed SD-WAN value series, developed in partnership with Cisco Meraki, is the answer to this uncompromised connectivity need. Companies operating in multiple locations can build an intelligent enterprise-grade network on a secure overlay using cost-efficient broadband underlay instead of MPLS,” said Sander Veraar, vice president of product management, Enterprise Business Group, StarHub.
"As organizations and users become more distributed, the demand for anywhere, anytime access to applications and services has become critical. Traditional network architectures are no longer fit to handle the workloads of a cloud-first organization. We're excited to work with Starhub to deliver next-generation Managed SD-WAN solutions to power on-demand, uninterrupted and secure connectivity for all enterprises in Singapore," said Andy Lee, managing director, Cisco Singapore and Brunei.
Starhub's Managed SD-WAN value series will enable enterprises in their digital transformation journey. The solutions transform the corporate network by adding application-aware dynamic routing, providing visibility into application traffic and performance, improving availability and efficiency, and simplifying branch deployments.
