The world’s best-connected global SD-WAN service. Build a resilient overlay, a stable underlay, and everything in-between.

Why Arelion’s SD-WAN service?

Productivity in today’s world ties closely to the flexibility given to network users accessing SaaS applications and Cloud platforms that sit outside the traditional network perimeter.

For networking team leaders, it’s an exciting time to rethink the WAN strategy. Finally, a new wave of innovation using the principles of software-defined technologies, has reached the networking world.

Enterprises have a practical solution at hand that can offer more control, flexibility and visibility to speed up network operations and optimize and balance the use of existing MPLS links with internet access.

Cloud-scale Virtual and Physical Architecture on equal terms

Our SD-WAN service is optimized for cloud-scale networking, for both the Overlay and the Underlay - enabling a stable and scalable solution.

Arelion operates the world’s best-connected internet backbone that directly connects almost 65% of global internet routes.

Our backbone is the industry’s first full-scale, 400GE-ready, using advanced cloud-scale routing technology.  Enterprises can attach an underlay that will more effectively route network traffic with better pathways and minimal hops to business-critical SaaS applications and cloud platforms.

Deploy Networks Faster

SD-WAN accelerates operational processes, like deploying, modifying, or disconnecting network services.

Arelion will provision the SD-WAN service remotely. We will enable each router to be authenticated and configured with near zero-touch deployment of the network setup.

Solve the application visibility problem

Network managers gain a complete view of the connectivity performance of business-critical applications – with better visibility to manage key performance metrics like Mean Time to Resolve (MTTR) and set the baseline for network automation for fault isolation and remediation.

With millions of end-users, for whom the word ‘interruption’ simply doesn’t exist, established network solutions don’t always cut it. That’s why we created our own (...) delivery platform and needed a network partner with not only a solid backbone, but also the right mindset and understanding to support our rapid and often unpredictable growth trajectory.

Andre Reitenbach, CEO, G-Core Labs
