Phased Approach

BUI's phased approach to delivering modern cloud based vWAN solutions.

Phase 1: Discovery

Assess the existing landscape to understand the current WAN typology and user landscape, developing the scope through discovery work sessions, considering:

  • Resiliency/High Availability
  • Security
  • Network and Application Performance
  • Load Sharing
  • Branch Topology

Output: Detailed architecture design, deployment plan and cost proposal.

Phase 2: Enablement

Deployment, configuration and activation of SD-WAN and Azure services as per detailed architecture and design.

  • Enabling and configuration of secure Azure landing zone
  • Distribution and enablement of SD-WAN at Branches
  • Enablement of centralized orchestration and management software

Output: Connected and enabled SD-WAN solution as per detailed design.

Phase 3: Validation and Testing

  • Validation and testing of network connectivity, orchestration, performance and reporting.

Output: test results of SD-WAN solution, signed off by the customer.

Phase 4: Managed Services
