Internet Access can be delivered on an asynchronous or synchronous mode, on different access technology (copper, fiber, Wireless transmission) , with or without managed router,… we help you to figure out what your business needs and build the right Internet access solution.

In a time of rapid digital transformation, the telecom infrastructure has to deliver more agility than ever. Our businesses are using more and more applications running in the Cloud, homeworking and remote offices are growing, employees are switching from different offices to home,... .
With a traditional WAN infrastructure, we have to multiply the appliances and vendors to deliver a solution covering the security, visibility and performance aspects. This type of infrastructure is complex and expensive to manage. The promise of the SDWAN is to deliver a reliable and cost-effective WAN solution covering all these aspects from the same box/vendor.
SDWAN variants :
SDWAN OVER THE INTERNET
Networking purely based on single or multiple Internet connections
SDWAN VIA MPLS
Based purely on MPLS connections
Combination of MPLS and Internet connections
SDWAN helps your multi-sites organisation to enhance the following elements:
Security is certainly the cornerstone of SDWAN. Centralized Security Management, traffic encryption, embedded firewall, Anti-DDOS, SASE, Secure Web Gateway, … depending on your needs, we will guide you to the right SDWAN vendor to perfectly match your expectations.
SDWAN makes all applications running on your network visible, through a portal. Depending on your requirements, we help you choose the right SDWAN solution which provides the application monitoring capabilities you need, from the user all the way into the cloud.
An SD-WAN can use multiple transports, giving it a tremendous amount of flexibility, enabling remote endpoints that can be configured for MPLS, broadband or business grade Internet, 4G/5G and more. In addition, SDWAN allows multiple types of WAN connection and appliances, enabling high redundancy.
On top of the prioritization of your sensitive applications, SDWAN with multiple links deployment shift dynamically traffic between your different connections. It prevents lower performance from being created by diverting the traffic to alternate less-busy channels.
SDWAN optimize greatly the costs of a WAN thanks to the different types of connectivity you can use, the number of equipment and software you won’t need anymore and the ease of network administration.
Today, Ethernet has become the default wireline transport technology for any IP services. Nevertheless, Ethernet can be directly used to interconnect your LAN to the LAN of another office, your rack in a DC or your virtual tenant in a public cloud.
There are multiple advantages of Ethernet such as a lower cost per Mbps (with very high bandwidth capability), a fully transparent access technology and easy to manage and integrate with you LAN’s.
Ethernet can be a point-to-point solution (the most common) but can be delivered as a meshed network or on a dedicated fiber (for latency and security reasons) and even on demand.
Ethernet can be implemented for metro, national or international needs.
Quendra will help you by giving a clear view on the different available Ethernet solutions and the advantages or disadvantages of each one.
