Wuppertal, July 10, 2019:
Riedel Networks is the first German provider to offer an SD-WAN solution purely based on Cisco components with immediate effect. The technology separates the transport networks and the management level. This makes enterprise wide area networks more efficient, secure and highly available.
Traditional enterprise networks are based on static WAN concepts. As a result, there are always problems with the requirements of modern business processes and cloud services, especially with regard to the demands placed on the performance of the network by the various applications. Classic solutions such as multiple IP VPNs are complex and not very flexible. Globally distributed data lines need to be managed locally, posing a high risk of outages and security breaches. In addition, changes require long-term planning. These problems are solved by Riedel Networks’ SD-WAN concept, which gives customers access to the most advanced network architecture and security solutions for enterprise networks. The central management and monitoring of data as well as applications protects them and the network can be quickly and flexibly adapted to new requirements at any time. Thus, the SD-WAN solution from Riedel Networks guarantees the best performance for modern business processes and systems.
“Our SD-WAN solution allows us to centrally manage complex networks for our customers – no matter where their sites are located,” said Michael Martens, CEO of Riedel Networks. “Companies can flexibly and securely connect all their branch offices, mobile workers, cloud services and data centers to the SD-WAN via the various connection options. This is done via redundant paths that are selected for each application so that the user receives the best performance. As a result, we offer our customers 99.5 percent system availability.”
The services and customer solutions are developed and implemented in close cooperation with Cisco Systems, the market leader for IP and MPLS hardware. Riedel Networks’ portfolio includes various access components to meet different customer requirements. The Cisco access routers serve both as network terminators for the access line and as SD-WAN access routers and firewalls. This avoids multiple network elements in series and significantly increases reliability. It also makes management as simple as possible and helps optimize network performance.
Based on its many years of experience in networking the most demanding customers, Riedel Networks knows the importance of highest quality and flexibility for the success of a company. The specialist for international wide area networks links the sites of more than 280 multi-national companies from various industries in more than 95 countries with its highly available backbone and its more than 300 local partners.
