SD-WAN for the Home Worker
In today’s economy, more people than ever are working from home. Video conferencing, VoIP calling, file sharing, and cloud collaboration are just a few ways freelancers and employees interact and perform their jobs from home. Internet quality and reliability are top of mind as network disruptions and performance issues can become intolerable.
CloudAccess SD-WAN for the home worker is a new offering available for anyone in need of more bandwidth, higher quality streaming, and reliable Internet at home.
Reacting in times of change
COVID-19 has had a dramatic effect on work and social life. Businesses of all sizes globally have asked employees to work from home as governments implement social distancing rules.
As a result, the whole family is using the home network, mixing YouTube with Teams, and Netflix with SharePoint. Everyone is competing for bandwidth, increasing traffic.
Service providers are seeing a degradation in connection quality and users are experiencing quality issues when using applications or collaborating.
CloudAccess is the answer.
SD-WAN for the Home Worker – Quality of Service over Broadband
For home workers, sharing their network with other users can be challenging. Being able to complete a video conference meeting while others stream Netflix or download files is essential. Most households have decent bandwidth, but apps compete unfairly and try to prioritize their functions in your network.
CloudAccess SD-WAN sets traffic priorities in your network from all devices and assigns them in order of importance. This Quality of Service cleans up your broadband traffic by assigning bandwidth to top priority applications such as Zoom, Meet, Teams and VoIP, while limiting other bandwidth-hungry apps. The result is crystal clear videoconferencing and VoIP calls despite the network traffic.
SD-WAN for the Home Worker – Backup Internet 3G, 4G, LTE or 5G
Residential broadband can be spotty at times. Professionals working from home have resorted to mobile tethering to download/upload documents, video conference, or deliver presentations. These untimely interruptions happen often, making work from home situations difficult or unreliable.
CloudAccess SD-WAN provides users with backup connectivity. Combine an existing broadband connection with a standby mobile connectivity using 3G, 4G, LTE, or 5G. A standby connection activates seamlessly when the primary broadband link suddenly drops, ensuring connectivity is not lost. A standby connection will continue to send traffic over the Internet without any interruptions to voice calls, video calls, or VPN sessions. Once the primary link becomes active, the standby link reverts to standby mode, ready for the next emergency.
SD-WAN for the Home Worker – Bonded Internet Connections for more Bandwidth
For some freelancers or employees working from home, access to sufficient Broadband can be a problem. Some areas only have access to low-performing broadband connections with no other carrier options available.
CloudAccess solves this problem by combining multiple Internet connections of any type to increase bandwidth. For example, combine two DSL connections and aggregate their upload and download bandwidth.
Combine any broadband type such as cable + xDSL + fiber = full sum aggregation of download and upload
