Building a Intelligent and Agile WAN
MPLS is a reliable and secure technology for building a fixed-path VPN over an IP network between branch offices and data centers. However, enterprise networks are facing the challenges such as the connectivity with lower cost, the capability for quicker deployment, the agility to steer traffic to a variety of cloud-based and SaaS sites outside this traditional VPN, etc.

Traditional WAN for Multi-Location Enterprises

Software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) technology is the solution to the challenges. SD-WAN offers augmented connectivity, better cloud application delivery, simplified WAN operations, and reduced operational costs for those managing public and private WAN connections.

 Q-Balancer SD-WAN

Q-Balancer SD-WAN delivers a business-class, secure, simple, and cloud-enabled WAN connection with as much open and software-based technology as possible through augmenting or even replacing traditional MPLS with affordable Internet bandwidth.

All Q-Balancer devices support multiple WAN transports across broadband, MPLS, and LTE cellular links. Software features include the ability to route and prioritize traffic being sent to the data center, public cloud infrastructure or the Internet. Each device also supports High Availability (HA) requirements (e.g. active/active and active/standby), making it ideal for sites that need full redundancy.

Q-Balancer SD-WAN gateway deployed in headend/data center environments work as VPN concentrators to terminate traffic from edge devices. The gateways at headend enable seamless and secure connectivity for all branch and headquarters locations connecting to the headend gateway. Q-Balancer SD-WAN gateway can be either physically or virtually deployed in public or private cloud infrastructures.

QBManager is a centralized management system that works as an SD-WAN orchestrator for enterprise networks by overseeing traffic, applying policy rules, and simplifying deployment. QBManager can be virtually deployed in public or private cloud infrastructures.

Q-Balancer gateways enable the simultaneous use of multiple WAN links and automatically fail over to the secondary connection in the event of WAN outage or brownout. The gateways also have the ability to direct traffic to the optimal path or distributes traffic across the selected paths.

The centralized management system, QBManager, deployed in public or private cloud infrastructures, make all gateway devices easy to configure and provision and see traffic from branch gateways and headend gateways from anywhere.

Q-Balancer delivers a business-class, secure, and simple cloud-enabled WAN connection with as much open and software-based technology as possible. Q-Balancer enables enterprises to flexibly expand network scale, delivers optimal access for both site-to-site and cloud applications.

Q-Balancer offers scalable bandwidth throughput based on license upgrade. This means you have access to full hardware performance capabilities without the need to purchase new hardware. Also, you may upgrade the bandwidth throughput as the business grows.
