With this importance, it’s no surprise that SD-WAN technology has seen major growth over the past few years. According to IDC the SD-WAN infrastructure market will see a 30.8% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2018 to 2023, reaching $5.25 billion by 2023.*

This major growth underlines the benefits of using this technology and the value it will continue to carry in the future. We’re always committed to empowering our clients with the best tools, which is why we’re excited to announce our newest product suite.

In the blog below, we’ve outlined the best parts of Cisco Meraki — and the ways it can supercharge your data use and connectivity. Keep reading to see why we’re so excited about bringing this cloud-based solution to you and our customers.

1. Connect faster and more reliably

SD-WAN technology works by analyzing the data coming through your internet network and prioritizing it to improve your performance and connection speed. With Cisco Meraki, you can customize your SD-WAN settings, deciding what data is most important for your work. This easy-to-use feature guarantees high-quality performance from the applications your business depends on. No matter the situation or use, you’ll always stay connected when it matters most.

2. Expand your bandwidth at a low cost

Cloud applications, specifically those involving video, require a significant amount of bandwidth. Cisco Meraki offers every business the bandwidth they need at a price they can afford. This product uses both broadband and fiber to maximize system performance without demanding huge costs. Instead, you’ll be able to utilize the SaaS solutions and cloud-based applications that best serve your business without worrying about your budget. No one should have to sacrifice quality for cost and with Cisco Meraki, you don’t have to.

3. Add users without slowing performance

Without SD-WAN technology, every additional user in your network can slow performance and connection speeds. Cisco Meraki eliminates this problem by optimizing bandwidth and prioritizing your applications to ensure peak performance. Your staff can enjoy reliable access to all of their preferred applications on any device. Whether they’re using one device or many, your network will remain powerful and fast. By adding this product to your cloud-based solutions, you can add new users and devices without worrying about additional drain or lagging. You’ll be able to build the team you need while equipping them to produce the best results.

4. Discover total security peace-of-mind

A lot of important data travels through your network. Whether it’s personal details or sensitive business data, you need to know that your information remains safe within your company. Cisco SD-WAN powered by Meraki is fully integrated with advanced security which sets it apart from other vendors and is one of the reasons IPFone decided to offer it to our customers. This SD-WAN technology automatically creates secure connections between sites, encrypting each data packet before sending it along these tunnels. It also allows you to use cloud applications without worrying about your data. You’ll be able to track application performance, identifying any problems that might affect your security and system performance.

For these reasons and more, we’re thrilled to add Cisco Meraki to IPFone’s suite of cloud-based solutions. Discover more about this SD-WAN product and the ways it can benefit your company by connecting with one of our specialists.
