Our Software Defined Wide-Area Network (SD-WAN) is a powerful and cost-effective solution ready to transform your organisation's network infrastructure. With Insight Network, you can improve network performance, security, and scalability while reducing traditional physical networking costs. It allows for intelligent path selection, application optimisation, and centralised management. Insight Network enables your business to be more agile, efficient and responsive to changing market place needs.
Traditional Wide Area Network (WAN)
Imagine Auckland’s road system as our traditional WAN. All the cars (our data) need to get from one place to another, but there are only a few specific routes they can take. Just like in peak hours, when there's a lot of traffic, it can cause a traffic jam and things slow down. Also, all cars have to obey the same traffic rules and lights, no matter if it's an ambulance in an emergency or just someone out to get fried chicken.
Software Defined Wide Area Network (WAN)
Now, imagine if we had a super intelligent traffic control system — that's our SD-WAN. In this system, each car is given the best possible route based on how urgent its journey is. For example, an ambulance (critical data) would be given the fastest route, while the fried chicken driver (non-critical data) could be directed along a scenic, less direct route. This system can even move cars to different roads if there's a sudden roadblock or heavy traffic on the usual path.
So, with SD-WAN, Auckland's traffic moves much more smoothly and efficiently. Each car gets where it needs to go quickly and without unnecessary delays, making the whole city's transport work better.

SD-WAN, or Software-Defined Wide Area Network, uses software to control and manage network connectivity and services. It provides increased bandwidth, lower costs, and enhanced security. By prioritising traffic, it enhances performance and allows businesses to efficiently use and manage multiple internet connections simultaneously.
SD-WAN needs special computers (called "edge devices") at each location. These can be actual machines or just software. You also need a main control system to manage everything. Plus, you need basic internet setup like routers. So, it's special computers, control systems, and your regular internet gear.
SD-WAN is designed to work with any type of internet connection, such as ADSL, Fibre or 4G/5G cellular. However, to fully leverage the benefits of SD-WAN like redundancy, load balancing, and failover, it's recommended to have multiple diverse connections.
Look for a partner with a proven track record of successful SD-WAN implementations and experienced network engineers. Expertise in designing, implementing, and supporting a customised solution. Comprehensive support and service levels, including 24/7 support, SLAs, and proactive monitoring and maintenance.
