The “KDDI SD-Network Platform” is an SD-WAN service that enables flexible construction of corporate networks according to work styles, business, and site reviews. By installing dedicated equipment at the customer's location, network virtualization using software-defined technology (note1) is realized. We provide a network environment in which customers can improve their issues, such as traffic growth, network quality degradation, and security management, and enjoy a comfortable use. In addition, this service provides “SD-WAN devices,” “licenses,” and “equipment maintenance” on a monthly model, reducing the burden of customer IT management.
Furthermore, The "KDDI SD-Network Platform" will enable customers to rapidly deploy their sites and strengthen IT governance not only in Japan but also overseas (note2) .
There are three types available: by Cisco SD-WAN and by Cisco Meraki and by Versa.
Please select one that meets your request.

This is a service introduction video for the SD-Network Platform, which enables flexible, efficient, and safe WAN construction.
By installing a dedicated device at your site, you can configure an optimal network that makes use of your current VPN service and Internet service.
It is possible to build flexible corporate network by combining not only closed network but also the Internet. Change the route of the network based on line quality and congestion. It can be used in a variety of situations, such as the revision of the existing network and the establishment of an SD-WAN based on the Internet, which is caused by the increase in telework and the introduction of zero-trust security.
With the deployment of diverse cloud services, increasing Internet traffic is a challenge for many companies.
For such increasing traffic, SD-WAN devices can identify cloud applications and automatically distribute closed networks, the Internet, or line types, thus reducing the cost of increasing circuits and providing a comfortable cloud service.
