With ransomware attacks continuously on the rise in line with the amount of data running through networks, SMEs in London face a challenging task in finding reliable technology that keeps data and networks secure, whilst at the same time reducing costs, improving connectivity and being maintained remotely. Software-Defined Wide Area Networks (SD-WAN) are designed to ensure security when connecting several locations to a central area, whilst increasing business agility. Selecting a top-tier IT partner with demonstrable experience in SD-WAN services is of critical importance for any business.
300+ London businesses have trusted us so far.

SD-WAN Services in London FAQ
What is an SD-WAN?
Many of the new software-defined WAN offerings can be used to improve and secure internet connectivity. In some cases, software-defined WAN technology uses Internet broadband connections to replace more expensive solutions. You can also deploy an SD-WAN over your existing infrastructure.
What is the difference between SD-WAN and MPLS?
On the other hand, Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) runs on proprietary hardware and uses its own dedicated lines. Instead of long network addresses, it directs data from a single node to the next using short path labels.
What is the difference between SD-WAN and VPN?
Which is the best SD-WAN provider for an SME in London?
Before investing in an SD-WAN solution, small and medium businesses need to consider choosing an IT provider with proven, demonstrable experience in implementing an SD-WAN and can act as a consultant, just like TWC.
With the benefits, come some challenges with this solution. SMEs can benefit from working with a trusted provider to understand the complete picture of SD-WANs.

Does TWC offer 24/7 support in London in case something is wrong?
Of course. We offer 24/7/365 support from implementing your SD-WAN until the deployment process is complete. After that, we will act as your external IT department by monitoring and managing any problems and reporting them back to you for as smooth an operation as possible.
My business is not London based. Can TWC still offer me reliable SD-WAN services?
Yes, of course. As SD-WANs are essentially intelligent routers managed remotely, your business doesn’t need to be in London. It can be configured from anywhere globally, at TWC locations like London, New Jersey or Hong Kong.
