Networking at the speed of business
Agility plays a key role in digitalization. Telia SD-WAN company network service adapts flexibly to your business demands.
Why is SD-WAN the one?
Forget about managing a variety of connections and devices – with SD-WAN you can manage the company network centrally from the cloud. The programmable company network is created virtually over any IP connection, so you can freely choose the connection that best suits your needs. Thanks to the automation of network functionality, the network adapts quickly and flexibly to your rapidly changing business demands. Contact us to hear more about our SD-WAN solution.
What is SD-WAN?
In SD-WAN, network management is separated from the customer devices in the offices and centralized into the cloud in accordance with the principles of Software Defined Networking (SDN). Key features include concentrated, application-level visibility and traffic management. The network functionalities are virtualized (Network Function Virtualization, NFV), which enables automation of the network and, furthermore, fast changes. Moreover, supplementary networking services can be deployed on-demand, either in the cloud or as software operating on the offices’ customer devices. Telia’s SD-WAN service is based on open SDN standards such as the OpenFlow protocol, and the service is developed according to the customer-oriented Lean Service Creation model.
What can SD-WAN be used for?

SD-WAN operates over the IP connections of any operator, whether public or private, fixed or wireless. If you want the services in the office LAN to be accessible from other locations, the connection must include at least one public IP address.
The SD-WAN service integrates seamlessly with the existing company networks, such as DataNet. Migration to SD-WAN usually takes place in phases so that SD-WAN is first adopted in sales offices and mobile locations, for example. The use of SD-WAN can then be expanded either by replacing the existing company network service in the remaining offices with SD-WAN, or by using SD-WAN on top of hybrid underlay, i.e., of both DataNet and internet access in the same sites.
SD-WAN is a cloud-based company network service. Its heart is a redundant and constantly monitored controller located in Telia’s data centre. The availability of services from an individual office depends on the availability of the internet connections and customer devices. SD-WAN provides inherent support for redundant internet connections, reducing the risks related to the availability of internet access. The redundancy is active, which means that the full capacity of the office connections is continuously available. A passive or active second customer device can also be provided for the office.
In a programmable company network, networking and data security are intertwined. In the SD-WAN service, data security is integrated into the network solution and included in centralized management, reducing the need for separate data security services. However, customers can also use advanced data security services provided from their own offices or data centres, or from Telia’s network.
As an agile cloud service, also our pricing is as flexible as possible – you only pay for what you use. We provide monthly pay-as-you-go pricing without the need to commit to long contracts. The basic price of the service is scaled according to the number of offices. In addition, an appropriate office package is defined for each office according to their requirements. A range of supplementary services that can be activated with immediate effect are also available.
