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
