Control and Optimize Any Network Link
Broadband and wireless links offer significant cost and flexibility advantages over private site-to-site circuits, like MPLS.
When broadband and wireless links are deployed within an Internet-only or hybrid WAN, they lack the inherent security, reliability and stability that business-critical applications require.
To overcome these limitations, Mosaic SoftWave SD-WAN uses automated per-packet and application link and path steering. This is accomplished using measured performance metrics, intelligent application learning, priority of applications, and dynamic path selection. Link degradation remediation is controlled using forward error correction, activating jitter buffering and synthetic packet production. These capabilities, combined with sub-second blackout and brownout protection, improve WAN availability and uptime.
To ensure WAN reliability and application performance, QoS, resource allocations, link and path steering, and error correction are automatically applied via the central orchestrator, using business policies and application priorities.
Centrally Manage Business Policies and Application Priorities
Traffic management is centrally orchestrated using service groups delineated by private/public links, policy definitions, and link characteristics. Choosing the best path at any given time to avoid slow and unreliable performance is determined by automated link monitoring, auto-detection of service providers and auto-configuration of link characteristics, routing and QoS settings.
Mosaic SoftWave SD-WAN provides granular classification of over 2,500 applications, and uses QoS policies to support business objectives. IT staff simply identify the traffic priorities, and automated application profiles facilitate QoS configurations and bandwidth allocations. WAN links are continuously monitored and application performance is computed as a “Quality Score” that weighs the performance of voice, video, and data applications, and alerts IT staff when the Quality Score is not met.
