SD-WAN Lite

SD-WAN Lite is a cost effective, entry level SD-WAN solution designed for SME and small branch office needs – perfect for environments that demand high-resilience Internet connectivity, reliability and excellent Vox Voice Quality.

In addition to this, SD-WAN Lite WFH is designed to cater for users who work from home. The product boasts a wealth of benefits, including:

  • Improved network resilience and bandwidth utilisation.
  • Enhanced Vox Voice services.
  • WAN Monitoring and reporting.
  • Integration of any combination of broadband connectivity, including ADSL, LTE, Microwave and Fibre.
  • Accommodation for up to 3 Internet connections for Lite and 2 for Lite WFH.
  • Automatic failover with load-balancing for quality performance.

With a focus on maximising your productivity while working from home, you can enjoy all the benefits you desire without breaking bank.

How It Works

Features And Benefits

  • Alerting and Control

    Get notified via email of link downtime and when a failover event occurs, users
    can adjust their load balancing and failover strategies at will.

  • Monitoring

    The Cloud-based monitoring platform allows users to view their access links’ performance in real time.

  • Load Balancing

    Prioritise bandwidth usage for specific links to ensure more efficient bandwidth utilisation.

  • Voice Optimisation

    Voice quality improves by means of Forward Error Correction (FEC). This is only relevant to Vox Voice Enhancements.

  • Zero-Touch Provisioning

    SD-WAN CPE devices are plugged in and automatically configured based on
    desired fail over policies.

  • WAN Failover

    Automatic link fail over to improve uptime.

Frequently Asked Questions

No, not at this stage. We are considering MPLS support to be integrated in a future release.

Yes, the compromise for FEC is roughly 50% more bandwidth being used per voice call. For G.729 codec, bandwidth increases from 30Kbps to 45Kbps per call, and for G.711 the increase is from 80Kbps to 120 Kbps per call.

Yes, however this will only apply to the ‘primary’ WAN link. If this link goes down, unfortunately, a new public IP is being used, thus port forwarding will not work – until the link comes back up.

No. All WAN links will still require their own respective routers to be installed, e.g. Mikrotik RB750 for Fibre, Mikrotik wAP for LTE connections, etc. These devices are then connected to the SD-WAN appliance via their respective LAN interfaces.

No, unfortunately network conditions out of our control mean that dropped calls can and will happen. We are only able to optimise voice traffic over the ‘last mile’ and into the Vox network itself. Once a call traverses an interconnect partner’s network, we will be subject to the conditions on that network.

No, voice optimisation can only be done on Vox voice products as stipulated in this document.

SMEs Need a Bespoke SD-WAN Solution
The normalisation of a distributed working environment has seen significant global demand for SD-WAN solutions that provide enhanced connectivity and security for organisations with a geographically dispersed employee base. Research shows that the adoption of cloud platforms that enable this connected work experience is helping fuel SD-WAN growth projected to create a $53 billion market by the end of 2030. The question now turns to how SMEs can benefit from this as these solutions have typically been targeted at larger corporates.

SD-WAN: Delivering Secure Access
The benefits of leveraging hyperscalers to provide users with direct access to cloud platforms cannot be overstated. No longer needing to be rerouted to the head office using traditional MPLS technology, distributed workers can now access company data and solutions via consumer broadband links using SD-WAN as an enabler. This gives them all the functionality they would typically have in an office environment from their remote locations. In fact, one of the biggest advantages of an SD-WAN is the ability to use multiple broadband links to provide reliable, high-quality access to business systems.
