Technology that makes change possible
SD-WAN has long been considered the saviour of network management and the answer to solving three critical challenges faced by businesses everywhere - reducing costs, increasing efficiency and tightening security.
So what exactly is SD-WAN?
Is it something you need and more importantly just how will it benefit your business? Put simply it’s a one stop solution used to control the connectivity, management and services between your main sites, data centres and remote locations, it’s a better way to build and manage your WAN.
Do I need it?
With the recent seismic shifts in day to day working, business requirements in the connectivity space have needed to evolve at a rapid pace. Never before has it been more important to ensure that your business is adaptable enough to function, no matter what the circumstances or location while also ensuring your network is fully reliable and completely secure.
That's where JT's SD-WAN, a fully-managed network overlay solution comes in. We can play an essential role in simplifying your network operations while optimising its performance. JT’s SD-WAN gives businesses access to an efficient, economical solution that's reliable, secure, and highly scalable – peace of mind in a changing world.
Software-Defined Wide Area Network: Why make the move to SD-WAN?
Here are just 5 key benefits of JT's SD-WAN:
1. Rapid Deployment / Low Capital Investment
As the service is configured and hosted on our infrastructure, it means deploying SD-WAN over your network is much faster than traditional private networking solutions and most other SD-WAN services. It also means, that you get the full suite of features that would only typically be available to businesses who host and configure their own infrastructure. This offloads a significant amount of upfront costs and JT's SD-WAN solution is flexible enough to adapt to your business needs, no matter what size it is today or in the future.
2. Network Infrastructure Agnostic
Do you have multiple network connections, provided by multiple carriers, including MPLS, DIA and LTE, patched together and spread all over the globe?
Deploying JT’s SD-WAN allows businesses to manage, and even simplify their existing networks, all in one place. If you rely on several alternative networking services, integrating them with SD-WAN is not as complicated as it may seem – which means you can keep your existing networks when you start using SD-WAN.
3. Seamless integration with MPLS
For those looking to maintain an existing MPLS network, JT’s SD-WAN can easily sit 'over the top', integrating other connectivity options where required and enhancing traffic prioritisation through seamless path selection on specified routes as needed. This means that your MPLS solution can be integrated with JT’s SD-WAN, giving you the service you're used to without adding complexity, just simplifying visibility and control.
4. Insights & Intelligence Based Routing
JT's SD-WAN automatically prioritises routing by application or traffic type because it provides a layer of intelligence over your WAN. Being able to utilise and merge with all infrastructure options, MPLS, DIA, broadband or even LTE, new sites can be added to your network, quickly and efficiently. It's a solution that's as flexible and adaptable as you need it to be.
5. Built-in Security
JT's SD-WAN comes with built-in UTM and NGFW security. These solutions protect your data and applications across all your networks. It's a robust security solution from an industry pioneer in network security. JT's SD-WAN is also flexible enough to seamlessly incorporate third-party security solutions, service chaining your existing firewall into your new SD-WAN enabled network.

Dr Chris Hare, Consultant Cardiologist, Jersey General Hospital, said: “I spent a full weekend on-call deliberately reporting all emergency scans from home. There were quite a few and they were complex. With JT’s SD-WAN, it was possible to review scans while patients were still on the table enabling rapid decisions about whether more was needed to be done or if they could return to their ward. With the system we had in place previously I would never have even considered attempting this, they were too slow, making it quicker for me to drive to work. But this new solution from JT is a gamechanger.”
