In today’s world, networks need to get smarter

With applications and data moving increasingly to the cloud, users demanding to access them from more and more devices and from wherever they happen to be, with security threats on the increase and expectations from customers and colleagues alike that we can collaborate anywhere and at any time – the demand on enterprise networks has never been tougher.

SD-WAN, or software defined wide area networks, brings a new level of both control and visibility to your network, and with ICON Connect SD-WAN, Maintel combines a rock-solid underlying network backed up by 24/7 management and assurance with the latest Cisco SD-WAN technology to give you more from your network, and to give your users the performance experience they need.

SD-WAN maximises the potential of your network – making use of all available bandwidth – and in the event that circuits degrade in performance, or even fail completely – re-routing traffic so seamlessly your users won’t notice.
