Despite its obvious benefits, adoption of SD-WAN amongst larger enterprises has been quite limited to date, due in large part to the inability for SD-WAN solutions to interface directly with legacy networks during a phased SD-WAN rollout.

How SteelConnect EX Solves this
Riverbed SteelConnect EX sets a new standard for SD-WAN in large enterprise that will propel mainstream SD-WAN adoption across enterprises and organisations of any size. An enterprise-class and carrier-grade routing stack ensures that Riverbed’s SD-WAN solution can seamlessly co-exist and interoperate with legacy networks, while best-in-class SD-WAN services enable organisations to adopt hybrid and internet-based topologies without compromise to operational efficiency or WAN reliability. In addition, industry-leading application acceleration offers the ability to optimise user experiences by boosting app performance by up to 33x or more for on-premises, Cloud and SaaS-based applications.

Technical Details:

  • SteelConnect EX SD-WAN enables enterprises to cost-effectively expand WAN capacity, accelerate the roll-out of new sites and applications and streamline operations for hybrid and Internet-based WAN topologies.
