When it comes to connectivity, it’s all about uptime. A single hour of downtime is now estimated to cost many enterprises more than $1 million when accounting for lost sales, productivity, and billable time. That’s why an increasing number of IT execs are realizing one connection is never enough, and network redundancy is vital in case a provider fails.
This is true for retailers, contractors, and any company that uses cloud-based systems to conduct business. For such enterprises, a low-latency, high-performance connection is invaluable. But researching your options to ensure you’re getting the best deal can be a time-consuming hassle, especially if you’re opening up a new location and need to establish fresh connections.

Whether you seek dedicated internet access for a single site or a secure, private network spanning hundreds of locations, we’ll deliver the solutions you need. We are your single point of contact for every provider.
If you are looking for a way to keep your various branch offices all on the same page, software defined wide-area networking (SD-WAN) presents an ideal solution. SD-WAN is perfect for businesses with multiple offices or retail locations, especially those that need PCI compliance. And SD-WAN is also beneficial for businesses interested in offloading the expense of MPLS or the headaches of homegrown VPNs.
An SD-WAN solution can centralize all your locations for easy network management. Access Tech matches you up with the best suppliers in your market, establishing a reliable multi-location network that keeps your company running around the clock.
As more enterprises adopt SD-WAN, more people are confusing it with its predecessor, software-defined networking (SDN). SDN is the underlying technology that centralizes the network and benefits businesses in a number of ways.
SDN was originally developed to meet the increasing needs of data centers and local area networks in a single location. The technology provides a centralized control console that IT executives appreciate and can easily program themselves. SD-WAN, on the other hand, is more well-suited for dispersed enterprises with users across any number of locations. Whereas SD-WAN is routable via software-defined applications that can run virtually, SDN is administered through network function virtualization.
Keeping critical operations running can be a full-time job for any IT team, but for smaller businesses, it doesn’t always make sense to expend those resources.
