HYBRID WAN UNDERLAY
Ready your network for digital transformation and drive down the costs of branch connectivity
Secure Internet connectivity integrated seamlessly into the enterprise Hybrid WAN
Digital transformation in the enterprise network has come to mean the widespread use of low-cost Internet for branch connectivity … or “Hybrid WAN underlay”.
We have unrivaled experience in Hybrid WAN in the underlay network, leveraging low-cost Internet branch connections seamlessly integrated with our vast global MPLS core.
Put the Cloud at the heart of the network
By connecting users to your Managed Hybrid WAN via low-cost Internet you effectively put the Cloud into the heart of your network. Network traffic bound for Cloud-hosted servers can “break out” locally on its route to the Cloud.
But if latency or security is a consideration, traffic can be encrypted and passed seamlessly into the Cloud data center via our secure high-performance MPLS network.
Drive down branch connectivity costs
The maxim “one-size-fits-all” should not apply to global networks. Not all users’ needs are the same and not all applications require performance guarantees.
Our Managed Hybrid WAN underlay allows you to seamlessly connect small branches or Cloud-centric users with low-cost Internet and large sites with users of latency-sensitive applications via MPLS.
Ready your network for software-defined networking
Many enterprises are not yet ready to take the plunge on “SD-WAN”. But that doesn’t mean you cannot start to prepare the foundations.
Our Managed Hybrid WAN is precisely the underlay network you will need to implement when you are ready to transform from physical CPE and appliances to software-defined networking.
Why not take advantage of many of the benefits now?
Connect all users to a single global network
The Internet offers connectivity in almost any location, anywhere on the planet.
We have the supply-chain and know-how for connecting branch locations to their enterprise network in more than 200 countries worldwide through an array of connection types thanks to a track record stretching back almost 25 years.
No other provider can match that.
Managed Global VPN
Leave the management of your network to the experts. Hybrid WAN built on rock solid service foundations.
We act as an extension of your business, using our expert knowledge, systems and processes for:
- Solution supply, testing, installation and configuration
- Proactive assurance, change and service management

An award-winning service on a global scale
Managing complex global networks is not your core capability so why deflect resources and focus from the fundamental objectives of your business?
We have provided mission-critical Managed Hybrid WAN services to multi-national enterprises for almost 30 years with the accolades to show for it.
And now we’re applying this expertise to SD-WAN.
Your network is critical to your business; so why not follow suit with hundreds of the world’s most recognizable brands and let us take care of it for you.
Peace of mind, 24 x 7
We understand what it means when users cannot connect over their network to their applications, or when a store opening is delayed because the network connection is late.
We pride ourselves in the fact that the service commitments we make are precisely that; commitments.
Our job is to provide our customers with a great service and peace of mind. That’s why we go to such lengths to design and provide custom-fit solutions, and then assure them with and end-to-end managed service, backed by meaningful and relevant SLAs.
Our customers are our strongest advocates
So unique, so outstanding is the service we provide, that our customers are our biggest advocates.
For us, the managed service is the very essence of how we enable our enterprise customers; it is at the heart of our business.
Many of the world’s leading brands rely upon us to provide and manage the connectivity without which their businesses cannot operate and when asked whether we do a good job, invariably answer with a resounding “yes”.
Flexible service models to match every solution
Every enterprise is unique. Their locations are widespread, their business processes are custom-fit, and the way they interact with customers and partners is different to all others.
And therefore our managed service is different.
We believe the managed service we provide should be tailored to our customers’ individual needs; whether this is in how we interface, how we report, where we report and even whether our teams are embedded in a customer’s operations.
Your business does not look like any other so why should your managed service?
