Our Professional Services team is highly experienced in the design and implementation of SD-WAN solutions. Our Professional Services offering is closely linked to our Integrated SD-WAN Solutions – we use this team to help deliver our Integrated SD-WAN Solutions. Our capabilities include the following:
- SD-WAN Proof of Concept (PoC) management
- Next-generation network architecture
- Integration with legacy routing protocols
- Activation and transition support
Our goal is to help enterprises perform tasks related to SD-WAN deployments that cannot be performed in-house, or where internal resources are not available.
SD-WAN Proof of Concept approach
One of the most common activities performed by our Professional Services team is the management of an SD-WAN Proof of Concept (PoC), using technology from VeloCloud by VMware.
We have a highly effective, repeatable process for SD-WAN PoCs that includes the following steps:
- Initial consultation with the client to agree scope of PoC, locations, success criteria, timescales, etc.
- Delivery of necessary equipment to client sites
- Distribution of virtual SD-WAN image(s) to client if required
- Technical design workshop session to discuss insertion approach, IP addressing details, routing protocols, failover, interaction between PoC and non-PoC sites
- Activation of PoC at test sites
- Assistance with testing during PoC
- Documenting performance against agreed success criteria
- Transition from PoC to production environment
