ADTRAN®, Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN), a provider of next-generation open networking and subscriber experience software, has announced its new SD-WAN solution designed to help small-to-medium businesses and distributed enterprises take advantage of cloud-based networking while keeping existing voice and security solutions in place to make the transition easier, faster and more affordable, the company said.
The ADTRAN SD-WAN platform provides both outbound and inbound quality of service (QoS), seamless connectivity and control of cloud applications and voice services. The solution automatically detects business critical and performance-sensitive traffic without having to manually set up policies as with first-generation SD-WAN solutions.
This capability enables all future cloud applications to integrate into the business without manual intervention. Additionally, the SD-WAN solution delivers end-to-end visibility, measuring each connection from any location on the network, all along its path, to ADTRAN gateways at any other location. Further, by identifying application traffic in real time, it can detect and automatically adjust based on the performance needs of the applications currently in use.
ADTRAN solutions optimize existing technology infrastructures and create new, multi-gigabit platforms that leverage cloud economics, data analytics, machine learning and open ecosystem.
