Add global 4G access to your SD-WAN mix
With the rise of the digital workplace, the move of information systems applications and services to the cloud and Software-as-a-Service, leveraging SD-WAN capabilities is key to a successful hybrid IT strategy. Cellular WAN Connect enriches your SD-WAN, offering an alternative to fixed access, either as a backup or within the SD-WAN transport mix. Cellular WAN Connect can evaluate the best cellular networks available and prepare for the move to 5G. Most importantly, thanks to 4G access, our service tackles the strongest limitations of SD-WAN: availability, security and scalability.
Cellular WAN Connect benefits
Enterprise connectivity made simple
Cellular WAN Connect offers global coverage with a single web portal, integration, contract, support interface and SIM type (SKU) for global service. The service enables secured 2G/3G/4G access in 160 countries, via direct agreements with local mobile network operators, with coverage set to expand to additional regions. Cellular WAN Connect is form-factor agnostic and supports all existing SIM technologies: Smart SIM (strongest signal, automatic repair), eSIM and multi-IMSI.
Because no wiring or installation is needed, a 4G-LTE network offers unbeatable time-to-setup and offers high bandwidth, as well as low-latency performance.
An advantage of 4G-LTE connectivity is data encryption and identity authentication, which ensures quality of service and the protection of critical data. Additional options exist for secure traffic delivery, ensuring seamless and air-tight integration into corporate networks.
Leverage cellular networks’ wide availability and instantly activate the SIM cards you need to scale your project. Benefit from improved cost efficiency as your needs grow.
Key use cases:
- Backup and fixed access redundancy, available instantly when needed, resulting in higher SLA compliance through a service with no downtime. A pay-per-use model ensures a low-cost 4G-LTE service.
- Connectivity for new and temporary sites, when fixed access is either not planned, or not yet in place.
- Aggregation and/or prioritization of data flows by access type, directing critical data flows to the most robust access for improved quality of service.
- Out-of-band management for diagnostics, firmware updates and maintenance, using dedicated, secure and managed 4G-LTE access.
