  • Network Visibility Expands the Value of Managed SD-WAN

As business leaders go through digital transformation, they recognize SD-WAN gives them the agility they need to scale cloud services while containing bandwidth costs. Entrusting the day-to-day operational management and troubleshooting of an SD-WAN to a managed service provider (MSP) creates additional value by minimizing risk and improving IT efficiency. But there’s another important benefit to consider when selecting the right SD-WAN solution. To truly optimize their network investments, business leaders need real-time network visibility with insights that support informed digital business decision-making.

How can businesses know if cloud applications are running well?

With today’s reliance on cloud-based business applications, network connectivity is paramount to maintaining productivity. From cloud-based voice and video collaboration to applications that track customer engagement activities, high-quality connections ensure employees have access to the tools they need for the business to thrive. For the digitally transformed business, any connectivity outage or network performance issues can bring productivity to a halt.

The concept of a managed SD-WAN solution places the responsibility for maintaining network connectivity in the capable hands of the MSP experts. With the trusted MSP watching over the network and resolving any issues, how can business leaders verify the network connections and cloud services are performing as expected? What investments should be made to ensure the network will be ready to deliver as the business grows and new technologies are deployed? These important questions are more challenging if your managed SD-WAN solution creates a blind spot. This is why network visibility is a key consideration for businesses who want to unlock the full value of managed SD-WAN.

Adaptiv Networks provides the answers

Adaptiv Networks delivers professionally managed connectivity solutions powered by their intelligent SD-WAN Cloud. A self-service login portal is included as part of the SD-WAN service, providing access for business leaders who want to retain full visibility into their network. The SD-WAN cloud portal  empowers the SD-WAN service provider with centralized monitoring and troubleshooting tools to proactively manage sites, connections and cloud services. Meanwhile, business leaders can log into the same SD-WAN Cloud portal to get unprecedented visibility to see real-time network performance at a glance.

Adaptiv’s cloud-managed SD-WAN solution automatically recognizes applications on the network and gives business leaders the network insights they need to make informed decisions. The Adaptiv SD-WAN Cloud collects information about each ISP connection to each business location and creates dashboards that quickly highlight areas that might be impacting business operations. Interactive visualizations show network uptime, bandwidth utilization, application performance, and user quality-of-experience across all the SD-WAN sites. Every ISP link, and all business-critical cloud services that require SLA management can be monitored with a simple, secure, centralized login. These insights ensure that the SD-WAN solution is providing the appropriate user quality-of-experience that the business needs to succeed. Adaptiv SD-WAN Cloud access enables the business to understand how every link is performing regardless of the connection type – the ISP connections can be DSL, fiber, cable, wireless, or MPLS. Viewing real-time and historical graphs of bandwidth usage, link health, and application performance, business leaders can quickly spot trends, identify issues and plan future changes to their network.
