Faster, Predictable Access to Microsoft Productivity Suite through SmartCONNECT SD-WAN as a Service

Team productivity within modern enterprises is highly dependent on a high performance and reliable network, especially when using cloud applications. When it comes to Office 365, a fair amount of tuning is required to get it optimized for an acceptable experience. In fact, Microsoft advises that customers budget at least 20% additional bandwidth for an Office 365 deployment for it to run effectively. However, branch and remote users experience regular performance challenges due to the following:

  • Multiple connections per session
  • Connection persistence
  • Application and data synchronization

Office 365 slow performance
Slow Office 365 performance over the public Internet is often a result of high latency and packet loss, in addition to lack of control over bandwidth usage.

With SmartCONNECT, Global Enterprises Achieve:

300% faster uploads
to OneDrive

Real-time synchronization with SharePoint files worldwide

Up to 89% data reduction; No need for additional bandwidth

Deliver Office 365 within 30ms of global end-users
