Wide Area Network

Avoid the bottlenecks on your distributed network and have powerfully reliable app performance.

From Connectivity-first to Application-first Networking

Legacy networks often struggle to deliver basic connectivity. However, more effective WAN networking solutions can achieve lower latency in app traffic, delivering better user experiences. The latest WAN virtualisation architectures from Hewlett Packard Enterprise can help you design and deliver the seamless, powerful application performance your users demand.

Beyond the Basics

Services like user authorisation for Facebook or analytics for Flurry require external Internet app access, while limiting secured customer data to internal networks. Hewlett Packard Enterprise simplifies the WAN with scalable, automated management layers that enable mass-scale apps to perform critical functions without compromise.

SD-WAN Virtualisation

A Software-Defined WAN dynamically selects the best path for each app based on policies and real-time network measurements. Flexibly and securely connect users to apps with higher visibility into vital traffic – all through one of the most cost-efficient connections available today.

Dynamic VPN

DVPN scales to over 3000 sites on a single HPE 6600 router and scales easily for large, multi-domain networks. DVPN delivers zero-touch deployment and reduces manual configuration by up to 93%.

Virtualised Routing

From ease of deployment to dynamic allocation, HPE Virtualised Services Routers deliver the kind of agility your business demands. Whether you need a VPN gateway, firewall security or traffic management, Hewlett Packard Enterprise has a virtual wide area network solution ready to deploy on demand.

FAQ : What is WAN?


A network can be considered to be a wide area network if computers or LANs are connected over a distance of half a mile or more. WANs have traditionally been run over leased, private lines, but can now be fully or partially cloud-based.
