SD-BRANCH

Complete. Digital. Networks.

SD-Branch is the hyper-integrated solution to radically simplify the management of branch networks with the LANCOM Management Cloud.

The central control of the entire network portfolio, whether in the company headquarters or via a Managed Service Provider (MSP), is represented by software-defined networking. Configuration and monitoring are bundled in a cloud-based management system. Especially the time and cost savings due to the elimination of complex single device configuration at many locations are a unique added value. With only one predefined network definition, a rollout is performed on all connected branches.

SDN Overview

Automatic setup of VPN tunnels and multi-service networks, fast roll-out of new branches, and secure connection of external service providers – managed centrally for all locations via the cloud.

Automatic, dynamic, and secure deployment of any kind of multi-service network on

switch ports, and fully automatic configuration of individual switches across sites after you

define the required networks (VLANs) just once.

Automatic Wi-Fi configuration for innovative in-store concepts, integration of new access points or applications such as hotspots, definition of the SSIDs, authentication method, and bandwidth limitations. Rollout to all branches thanks to auto-configuration and zero-touch deployment.

Centrally orchestrated cybersecurity via the LANCOM Management Cloud, including its Security and Compliance Dashboard, central definition of the security rules for a network, and connection to cloud-based security solutions.

All current LANCOM devices (routers, gateways, LANCOM R&S® Unified Firewalls*, switches, and access points) support the SDN technology. The integration is planned for 2019.

Digitization of branches

Agile, versatile, and future-proof networked branches

Networks for modern chain stores are a real challenge: Several digital applications simultaneously co-exist and you have to react quickly and flexibly to new requirements. Make your branch an agile “SD-Branch” by means of central orchestration via the LANCOM Management Cloud. Make new locations available with a minimum of effort, or scale-up existing branches. By the way, say goodbye to static investment cost models (CAPEX). Instead of purchasing your own hardware, you pay for the network infrastructure from a Managed Service Provider (MSP) and adapt your network operation costs (OPEX) according to your needs.

 

Central decisions implemented in real time at every branch

Your success depends on seamless communications between the main office and your stores. LANCOM SDN solutions enable you to securely connect to your branches and securely exchange data with external service providers, such as credit institutions, content providers or cloud services. The central orchestration of all network processes ensures secure communication between the head office, branches, and external partners.

IoT solutions

Customers and employees today expect modern branches and top service. With powerful software-based WLAN and IoT solutions from LANCOM, you can base your location concepts cloud-based meet the needs of your customers and employees. You can centrally control, for example, prices, shelf or room labels in your branches by radio (Electronic Shelf Labeling, ESL), integrate IoT modules and the terminals of your guests via hotspot or implement integrated, digital marketing concepts at the PoS. Process optimization and unique user experiences will improve customer loyalty and satisfied employees in the branches.

Our added values for you

  • Control and monitoring of the entire network by one system
  • Radically simplifi ed and automated configuration
  • Maximum agility in the provision of services
  • Unsurpassed scalability for networks of any size

Scenario

LANCOM's SD-Branch solution provides the hyper-integrated management of all network

processes, it securely connects your branches and external service providers, and it

guarantees the secure network separation of the various digital applications.
