Review

Netify Review

Expereo is recommended for small or large enterprises internationally that require SD WAN coverage for multiple or individual locations. This offering is advisable for clients that want cloud optimization solutions, SD WAN and Global Internet through the use of a minimal number of providers. This single provider solution helps reduce the corporate footprint whilst also simplifying the support and IT procurement process. Ideal customers are those who wish to make the transition to an SD WAN backed network from an existing MPLS network and who require redundancy or diversity options. On the 22nd July 2021 Expereo acquired Brodynt, a provider of global managed Internet services, which supports Expereo’s existing services and provides a strong, well rounded, single vendor product portfolio. With a SASE offering featuring CASB (Cloud Access Security Broker), threat intelligence, secure web gateways and DNS (Domain Name System) security and SD WAN supported by global vendors such as Cisco and VMware, Expereo’s service has options to suit most managed service needs.

Cloud Vendors

How does Expereo access cloud vendors?

Expereo have access to cloud providers such as AWS, Azure, Oracle Cloud, SAP and IBM Cloud, through their partnerships with SD WAN vendors VMware, Cisco Meraki and Cisco Viptela. They provide connectivity to the cloud with Layer-2 Cloud Connect, a product that allows data to travel through the most direct route possible to cloud providers, passing through as few nodes as possible to create speeds similar to an on-premises based solution. Clients are also offered multiple bandwidth size options, which can be tailored to business needs with no limit on the minimum bandwidth size, ensuring that clients do not overpay. 

Cloud Acceleration is offered, with path selection capabilities, selecting the most efficient path for internet traffic in real-time. This means that all applications remain optimized regardless of which service provider is chosen to be accessed, and lowers average packet loss and latency to increase application performance. Both Cloud Connect and Cloud Acceleration are deployed from an Expereo hub, which makes implementing Cloud Acceleration simpler if Cloud Connect is already in use.
