Software Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) Staffing


Client lacks a comprehensive, managed voice solution, and has no visibility into its network. Instead, client manages a mix of connections. Some sites have private lines that connect back to headquarters. Other sites connect back to headquarters through the Internet.

As a result, client is experiencing uneven call quality across sites, managing multiple firewalls, and spending more time reacting to network challenges than focusing on its core business and their customers. Client wants to move toward a Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) solution, and needs a strategy that will support this long-term goal, fix current voice quality issues, and provide reliable connectivity to other key Software as a Service (SaaS) applications centralized at its headquarters.


CBTS designed a custom-built outcome-based network for customer by deploying the SD-WAN VeloCloud solution, which delivers reliable and robust application performance across the Internet, and is a more cost-efficient solution than installing a series of MPLS connections. CBTS also centralized client’s Internet through a single firewall at its headquarters. Client now has visibility into the network, consistent voice quality, and the infrastructure to eventually host a UCaaS solution that will serve all of its sites.
