Times have changed and businesses are increasingly adopting the use of SaaS/IaaS applications in multiple clouds, however one of the inhibiting factors are legacy wide area networks (WAN) which are not ready for the explosion of WAN traffic that cloud adoption brings. Liquid Telecom South Africa has addressed these issues by upgrading its vast network offering to near unlimited bandwidth with vastly improved reliability. The upgraded network also addresses regionalised redundancy to overcome network interruptions. It will also provide customers with increased capacity and on-demand bandwidth using real-time self-service functionality. Customers can now boost their bandwidth whenever needed – for a day, a week or a month. It is extremely challenging to protect the critical assets of an enterprise. Enabling broadband in the WAN makes security requirements more acute, creating challenges for IT in balancing the user experience, security, and complexity. The development of the software defined WAN (SDWAN), which has now been implemented on the Liquid Telecom network lowers, operational costs and improves resource usage for multisite deployments. Network administrators can use bandwidth more efficiently and can help ensure the highest level of performance for critical applications without sacrificing security or data privacy. Reshaad Sha, CEO, Liquid Telecom South Africa said in a media briefing: “The replacement of our core network has not only catered to legacy performance issues but has made Liquid Telecom’s network one of the most technologically advanced networks in South Africa and across the African continent. It has also addressed one of the core needs of local enterprises around network capacity”.
