Apcela Proof of Concept: Leveraging a Global Multi-Cloud Transit Hub Network to Build a Cloud-Centric, Open Access WAN

Spring 2023

Modern apps and services are increasingly being distributed across data centers, cloud and edge. As enterprises expand cloud footprints to support this new architecture, the WAN needs to transform from cloud-ready to cloud-centric.

Cloud-based network services, such as software-defined cloud interconnect (SDCI), and security services, such as secure access service edge (SASE), are gaining adoption, and typically integrate with SD-WAN. As multiple cloud footprints, across multiple regions becomes the new reality, multi-cloud increases the networking complexity around premises-to-cloud, and cloud-to-cloud network connectivity.

SDCI and colocation hubs can form the foundation of cloud-centric WAN to interconnect an enterprise to a wide variety of cloud, network, and internet service providers. Apcela will demonstrate how these modern tools support deployment of a global CSP-neutral transit hub network, and how SD-WAN can orchestrate the new cloud-centric WAN, including fully integrating the edge access, all while reducing legacy WAN costs.
