Managed SD-WAN

Your app-driven business demands a performance-driven network

Distributed organizations face unique challenges when it comes to their networks. Chief among them is that branches can have vastly different broadband access types and infrastructures, which wreak havoc on overall network performance. Adding cloud-based applications to the mix compounds the problem.

The Software-Defined Wide Area Network, or SD-WAN, is the next-generation solution to solve these problems. As a trusted technology and managed services leader, Hughes Europe is well-positioned to deliver on the promise of SD-WAN. The Hughes Managed SD-WAN solution, which leverages ActiveTechnologies™, transforms ordinary broadband connections into enterprise-grade, high performance WANs.

What Is Managed SD-WAN?

It’s an end-to-end turn-key network that can be implemented on an existing network infrastructure quickly and easily.

It’s agnostic to WAN transport. As a leading provider, Hughes can integrate and manage cost-effective broadband access across Europe - wire-line, cable, wireless, satellite.

A Managed SD-WAN offloads Internet traffic closer to the edge of the network for improved network performance.

The newly launched Hughes HR4860 Secure SD-WAN Gateway has combined next-generation firewall security, routing, broadband optimization, plus SD-WAN functionality into one easy-to-deploy and manage platform.

Hughes HR4860 provides Direct Internet Access (DIA), Internet and cloud traffic off-load direct from premises edge.

The HR4860 runs on Fortinet’s FortiOS, incorporating a powerful operating system and industry leading security capabilities. As a Fortinet managed security service provider, this gives Hughes the ability to configure next-generation firewalls, including data leak prevention, vulnerability scanning and intrusion prevention that are centrally managed from the Hughes data center.

It simplifies network complexity through 24/7 WAN management, including zero-touch configuration and Web-based network performance management.

Managed SD-WAN delivers dynamic load sharing across multiple connections for better traffic flow. At the heart of SD-WAN is the Active/Active capability to dynamically allocate traffic across two active paths.

Hughes Managed SD-WAN includes additional optimization tools with our ActiveTechnologies. Not available from other SD-WAN providers, Hughes ActiveTechnologies result in significantly faster processing times and an improved end user experience and the best possible WAN solution.
