SD-WAN Technology

As your SD-WAN technology provider we can support highly complex network models for companies with multiple branch locations


Optimise performance to move forward


We live in a new era of networking, where user experience, mobility and security are top concerns and multi-cloud deployments have become the norm. Today’s business needs and market trends that focus on more latency sensitive applications have raised the bar on bandwidth requirements and quality of service.

All of this means that multisite enterprises face challenges with network performance and complexity. And it falls upon already hard-pressed IT departments. Software defined (SD) WAN addresses these needs, as your Managed SD-WAN provider we can offer a solution that not only provides the SD-WAN technology but takes away the complexity of managing distributed networks, so valuable internal resource can be deployed more effectively.

Some typical SD-WAN use cases

Often technology solutions are marketed on features and functionality, which makes it difficult to assess options when decisions are being driven by business objectives. At Hughes we help you to match SD-WAN technology to your desired business outcomes rather than by a tick-list of features. We have put together some use cases to highlight how we do this.

  • SD-WAN cost efficiencies

    For organisations that are looking to minimise costs across their network estate while still delivering effective, optimised connectivity, an SD-Branch solution would be a great option. With integrated platforms that cover SD-WAN, WLAN and LAN requirements, this is a cost-effective solution coupled with efficiencies in overall management overhead

  • SD-WAN apllications security

    For many businesses that are opting for lower cost internet solutions for connectivity, security at the edge is becoming increasingly important. Where this is a key business outcome, we offer SD-WAN technology with robust in-built security that has the added benefit of reducing the amount of physical hardware needed on site.

  • SD-WAN for enhanced customer experience

    If your top concern is delivering enhanced on-site experiences for your customers, application availability is key. For this scenario we would recommend a solution that offers advanced traffic management including active path selection, quality of service capability and advanced prioritisation of applications to maximise availability.

  • SD-WAN hybrid solutions

    If your organisation already has in-house networking expertise and you want to leverage those skills while still taking advantage of the benefits of outsourcing overall network management, we can also offer the perfect SD-WAN technology solution customised to these criteria.
