What is SD-LAN?

A software-defined networking solution that puts you in control, giving you policy automation, network segmentation, enhanced security, and a single management experience across your site or campus.

SD-LAN gives you a clear view of all the devices, users and applications accessing your wired and wi-fi networks. And automation lets you push out instant updates to applications, set automatic rules to deploy policies, apply security patches, and segment your network into different user groups, all from a single management and command centre.

If SD-LAN puts you in the driving seat, BT keeps you on the road.

A network fit for demand

The university’s network had remained relatively unchanged for over 10 years. Although it still performed well, it was taking up more and more of the IT team’s time to maintain and manage. Read how BT supported an agile network that can cope with high demand at Bournemouth University in collaboration with Cisco. 

Benefits of SD-LAN

Powered by SD-Access

Powered by SD-Access, SD-LAN gives you a clear view of all the devices, users and applications accessing your wired and wi-fi networks. And automation lets you push out instant updates to applications, set automatic rules to deploy policies, apply security patches, and segment your network into different user groups, all from a single management and command centre

A single pane of glass

We’ll give you a common management experience across your entire LAN and wireless LAN environments, putting you firmly in control of everything: devices, users, policies, applications. All from a single management and command centre.

A network that thinks for itself

Software automation deploys your network policies and manages device lifecycles and configuration, leaving you to focus on your core objectives. Transform your complex infrastructure into your most intelligent asset.

A network that automatically knows who can connect. And who can’t.

Guests and employees, students and lecturers, patients and medical staff, all have particular demands and varying security levels. Role-based segmentation makes sure the right people are accessing the right tools and gives them a seamless experience, keeping your network secure.  

Insights with depth. Decisions with intelligence.

Data-driven actionable insights that reveal how you’re using your end-to-end LAN and Wi-Fi networks, applications, and devices. Cut through complexity with rich insights, make smarter decisions. 

Real-time response, for real-time action.

Automation of manual tasks declutters your IT workstack fast so you can respond to business changes as they occur. Deploy wireless networks in minutes, not days. 

Cut costs. Be better.

By stripping manual tasks out of your network faults workstack, SD-LAN will give you a streamlined operation that’s more agile, effective, and cheaper to run.
