First the digital revolution, and now the explosion of IoT is disrupting every business on the planet. Traditional corporate structures are morphing into agile, responsive enterprises that converge networks, services and capabilities drive customer experience, integrate operations, rapidly innovate and pivot organizations.
Incremental changes to the traditional way of running the business are not enough. IT and technology services plays a critical role in growth, expansion and competitive advantage. Those services must be able to support dynamic and rapidly evolving business requirements that reprioritize on a moments notice.

A rapidly growing company was looking for a more efficient way to open new locations across the globe. With traditional networking, it took months of complex logistics, expert staff, and shipping and connecting physical devices to the new location. The ongoing management of the infrastructure was also complicated.
By choosing CLOUDWAN, the company has reduced the time to deploy a new site from months to days. Instead of an expensive and lengthy process to open a new location, they simply order a CPE edge device to be shipped to the new location. Now, they can add new services and push policies from our simple user interface.
Working in some locations, the local connectivity was slow and unreliable, so the company had to purchase private lines. In addition to being costly, it was also difficult to manage traffic and to deliver the necessary modern applications such as high definition video conferencing, and VoIP, to the remote areas.
With CLOUDWAN, the company was able to use features like Hybrid WAN and our flexible Internet breakout to better control and prioritize traffic. Now, they can leverage less expensive consumer-grade connectivity for low priority traffic, and reserve the expensive private lines for priority traffic.
Deploying a new site was incredibly expensive and time consuming. Mounting costs from the myriad of physical devices, bandwidth and connectivity, and deployment staff, coupled with the length of time it took to stand up a new site, drove the company to look for alternatives.
With CLOUDWAN, the company was able to replace many physical devices with a single “CPE” with virtual appliance functionality. They eliminated the need for expensive private lines and improved quality of service. They also turned lengthy, expensive projects into short, simple deployments that could be managed virtually in most cases.
