By proactively managing the quality of your SD-WAN, ARO mitigates the risk of downtime and gives you the confidence of reliable, high-quality connectivity.

When your employees open a document from the cloud or send an email, you can rely on ARO managed SD-WAN solutions to ensure all data is routed safely, securely, and efficiently across your various connections.

When network downtime can have costly consequences for your business, an SD-WAN (or software-defined wide area network) adds resilience to your network. SD-WAN connects your employees to applications using multiple connections. This means if one connection fails or is compromised, it won’t take your entire business offline.

SD-WAN, or Software-Defined Wide Area Networking, is a technology that enhances the performance and management of a wide area network (WAN) by utilising software-defined networking principles. It allows organisations to efficiently connect and manage various network resources across geographically dispersed locations.

SD-WAN provides WAN simplification, lower costs, bandwidth efficiency and a seamless on-ramp to the cloud with significant application performance without sacrificing security and data privacy.

SD-WAN uses a combination of private and public connections, including broadband internet, to transmit data whereas MPLS, rely on a private network infrastructure.

SD-WAN uses software and virtualisation to intelligently route and prioritise network traffic.

SD-WAN solutions can vary in terms of features, deployment models, and the underlying technologies used. Different vendors may offer unique capabilities, and organisations should assess their specific requirements to choose an SD-WAN solution that aligns with their business needs.
