When you can’t afford being offline our redundancy and failover service working in tandem with your primary connection is an excellent solution to minimise the possibility of internet outages.


SD-WAN, as its name implies, is a software-defined technology with application awareness that is deployed as an overlay technology to an existing or new network, which allows for ease of integration and adoption over time.  

The technology moves you towards increased security, local internet offloading and getting your traffic closer to cloud services with less latency and reduced bandwidth. Megaport, AWS Direct Connect, and Azure Express Route can also be included in our SD-WAN solutions. 

A Lightwire SD-WAN deployment is a great way to bring new levels of agility and speed to your network.
