Cogent SD-WAN provides a fast, secure, and efficient WAN solution, offering integrated Virtual Private Network (VPN) and Internet / Cloud connectivity with classes of service and end-to-end monitoring, at a lower price than other solutions.
If you are at risk of outgrowing your existing MPLS IP-VPN, and at the same time seeking higher security and more integrated Internet / Cloud connectivity, while your WAN budget diminishes, Cogent SD-WAN is the right response to your multi-site connectivity challenges.
Cogent SD-WAN is powered by Cogent Dedicated Internet Access, as well as optionally on top of a Cogent Ethernet VPLS solution, for enhanced performance and security. Cogent SD-WAN simplifies network traffic flow while also significantly reducing costs associated with network traffic growth.
- Speed: Cogent SD-WAN operates with high-end Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) and minimal overhead, ensuring performance at 85% of line speed – unlike other solutions.
- Security: VPN Traffic on Cogent SD-WAN is fully encrypted using IP-Sec technology (AES 128-bit), optionally with VPLS adding an encapsulation layer, ensuring your data remains secure.
- Efficiency: Your VPN and Internet / Cloud traffic share a common, easily scalable pipe, with up to three classes of service – ensuring your most important traffic gets the highest priority.
- End-to-end Monitoring & Analytics – Network administrators can use a unique, cloud-based portal to see each connected location on their network, along with traffic flow analytics. This enables you to quickly diagnose trouble spots, and identify locations or applications that might be slowing things down.
