The Challenge of Connecting Beyond the Edge


As networks and satellite communications continue to grow, smart network management will become ever more critical to ensure seamless business operations and processes.

SD-WAN solutions seamlessly blend satellite and wireless technologies, so customers no longer need to worry about the status of each link and which paths are preferred. SD-WAN continuously monitors the characteristics of each link and dynamically redirects traffic as required, allowing commercial maritime operators to focus on growing their business instead of worrying about their communications system. 

A reliable virtual circuit
for oil and gas applications

Reliable, high-performance connectivity is mission-critical for oil and gas platforms. With daily lease fees often exceeding hundreds of thousands of dollars, these platforms cannot afford any interruptions to their operations. SD-WAN allows the creation of highly reliable hybrid connectivity solutions that blend satellite, microwave, and 4G into a seamless, virtual circuit. This diversified approach mitigates outages related to interference, rain fade, crane blockage, and hardware failures.

In addition to seamlessly switching between the various technologies, SD-WAN can intelligently load-balance traffic among links to maximize throughput and minimize costs. With this hybrid virtual circuit, oil and gas operators can rely on robust and reliable connectivity with guaranteed minimal downtime.

Preparing for unprecedented future requirements

Companies in every industry are facing unparalleled pressure to accelerate their digital transformation without disrupting their operations. As networks and satellite communications continue to grow, smart network management will become ever more critical to ensure seamless business operations and processes. With dynamic link bandwidth aggregation to maximize throughput, guaranteed high uptime availability, unparalleled WAN visibility, and high end-user quality of experience, SD-WAN can provide a multitude of benefits to enterprises across a range of industry sectors.

SD-WAN makes it possible to mix and match different transmission networks—each with its strengths and weaknesses—into a single secure, high-performance, and cost-effective platform to provide the reliability, agility, and flexibility that today’s companies need to master change and deliver results when connecting beyond the edge. SD-WAN’s capabilities will only become more critical as customer demands and expectations increase.
