We were looking for a product to help us save money but at the same time give us good visibility, redundancy, and control. We have found that with the Velocloud SD-Wan solution. It is really quick and easy to setup.

Saicom have supplied an SD-WAN solution for Jacaranda FM, replacing old, end of line Telkom Diginet lines to our major regional broadcasting towers. The difficulty of getting the connection to these high sites has necessitated Saicom using a variety of technologies, from fibre, to bespoke wireless and even microwave frequency links with third party providers. This is complex, and fortunately the access portal provided by Saicom allows me to monitor these links on one dashboard, or delve into the services with more granularity when needed. There is also proactive outage notification via email, simplifying downtime management. The solution has also simplified our delivery of audio to the masts, by allowing me to deliver multiple streams from one multi-codec box into the Velocloud network via a single IP address, something which would not have been possible with multiple links.

About Secure SD-WAN

As the use of business-critical, cloud based applications continues to increase, organisations with a distributed infrastructure of remote offices and an expanding remote workforce need to adapt. The most effective solution is to switch from static, performance-inhibited wide-area networks (WANs) to software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) architectures.

Saicom Secure SD-WAN combines the power of software-defined networking (SDN) with robust security features to deliver an unparalleled networking experience. This innovative solution enables organisations to optimise and secure their wide area network (WAN) infrastructure, whether it’s connecting branch offices, remote workers, or cloud resources.
