Hybrid WAN technology decouples the physical network services from the systems and applications that use them. This is a powerful concept; there is no longer a reliance on a single service provider, it is easy to integrate legacy infrastructure with new technology while improving security. Likewise, current and future QoS/bandwidth objectives can be realised without redesigning the network structure.
Hybrid WANs can provide connections between offices or international bureaus; deliver seamless connectivity to connected cars, and fast reliable access to Cloud services.
Livewire Digital has developed a unique and comprehensive approach to using WAN called RazorLink Smart Networking. RazorLink is a Software Defined Networking (SDN) solution that can realise a seamless Hybrid WAN integrating cellular, terrestrial and even satellite. RazorLink can aggregate services for additional bandwidth or failover and secure the link, encrypting data whatever route the traffic takes. RazorLink WAN Optimisation accelerates TCP and adds resilience to UDP, improving performance over any connection.
RazorLink is a software solution that can be installed on a Mac or PC, deployed like a router (virtual or physical) or embedded alongside system firmware. The counterpart can be run on dedicated hardware or virtualised on Private or Public Cloud services.
