Why you should be selling SD-WAN

By January 29, 2021 No Comments

For starters, SD-WAN is Software-defined Wide Area Network. It is a virtual wide area network architecture that allows enterprises to leverage any combination of transport services. This includes MPLS, LTE, and broadband internet services – to securely connect users to applications. It securely uses centralized control functions to direct traffic across the wide-area network. With this process comes many benefits.       


  • High-quality user experience   
  • Increased business productivity   
  • Increased performance   
  • Reduced IT costs      

What can it do for customers?   

SD-WAN is one of the most popular advanced services that Tradewinds sells. Customers realise the benefits of using SD-WAN to optimize their networks, replace expensive private dedicated circuits and get to cloud / SaaS applications faster. Some of the Tradewinds SD-WAN suppliers include fully managed security services as part of their offering, allowing customers to shrink their IT closet and replace existing firewalls, network monitoring tools, and protection with a single service provider.    

Customers are using more SaaS and Cloud-based applications, and SD-WAN optimises network traffic to improve SaaS application performance. SD-WAN can also be used to replace existing VPN connections for remote workers needing access to on-prem or Cloud-based applications and servers. It is also good to know the type of MRR that this product brings to the table ($1,000 + MRC, 1– 3 year contracts).     

How can Tradewinds support you?   

Tradewinds sales engineers are available to join partners on discovery calls with prospects. Engineers can be white-labelled as a member of your own company. Lastly, you can engage with your Tradewinds SPDM to set up introductions with supplier channel managers and contacts to get a deeper understanding of a supplier’s offerings.
