SD-WAN Connectivity

What would be the impact on your business if your remote offices, staff, business associates such as logistics and stores or customers could not connect to you?


Businesses rely on fast and secure internet services to ensure that connections with clients, suppliers, partners and guests remain reliable and constant at all times. Staff productivity is reliant on the speed of access to business applications and delays in connectivity can have a big impact on the business from reducing production, harming sales and slowing down your response especially when you rely on multi-channel connectivity to deliver your services to consumers. Whether you are moving to or have your business applications in the cloud, connecting remote sites, stores or expanding internationally, getting the right connectivity is critical to your business.

With data-hungry applications and the amount of data, it is not just about speed but bandwidth linked into your digital strategy that allows you to grow your business, bring new services to market, keep your staff informed and enhance the user experience.

Consideration should be given that no wired connection can deliver 100% up- time. The question is not whether you will lose connectivity to the Internet at one (or more) of your locations. The question is how to protect your organisation from loss and disruption when it happens with reliable and secure connectivity, wherever the location.


With a choice of speeds and circuit types from simple terrestrial DSL business broadband, fast fibre and dedicated Ethernet circuits to 3G/4G wireless combined with satellite, Hughes can provide business connectivity solutions for every location.
