SaaS and IaaS themselves are a form of outsourcing; why should an SD-WAN solution be any different?
Utilizing SaaS and IaaS allows a business to reduce its overheads by virtually eliminating the need for internal on-premise support. An outsourced SD-WAN solution will take care of end to end design, deployment, and maintenance of the entire platform, all the while tailoring it to the specific needs of a business. This is where a dedicated and experienced Managed Service Provider (MSP) can really make all the difference.
A good MSP will be more than a mere provider of services. They’ll be a technology partner, applying their knowledge and expertise to help businesses maximize their network efficiency. MSPs with an interest in hyper-connectivity should offer:
A consultative approach
Be a sounding board for new ideas, helping customers to reach and exceed their goals through the technologies that are available.
Dedicated field services
Customers investing in SD-WAN will be looking for reassurance and a physical presence where required to maximize efficiency and reduce downtime.
Tailored network design
No two businesses are the same. A quality MSP will be able to build a custom solution that fits each individual business perfectly in terms of geography, network traffic, and connectivity.
State of the art monitoring
In order to make the most of an SD-WAN solution, real-time monitoring and 360-degree visibility across the entire network are crucial.
A dedicated MSP should be able to design, implement, and monitor an all-encompassing network solution that powers all aspects of business communications and data transfer. While it may start with a network underlay, things like monitoring suites and AI platforms can add invaluable levels of insight and control.
