ADVANTAGES OF SPIRIT SD-WAN
Simple Secure Network
Deliver Site Agility
Optimize Application Performance
Express Cloud Access bypasses the public Internet and connects your WAN directly to a Cloud Service Provider
Access your cloud service provider (CSP) with the same speed, reliability and security as any other endpoint on your WAN. Express Cloud Access, reaches multiple cloud providers, establishing them as virtual endpoints on your WAN.
Performance – Bypasses the public Internet to provide superior performance and reliability
Security – A private connection so data is never exposed to the public Internet
Flexibility – Reaches multiple CSPs without the need for a separate physical connection to each provider
Scalability – Configurable connections that are easily increased or changed as your business needs require
Cost Efficiency – No additional physical ports needed with existing Spirit network
Simplicity – Streamlines network administration by making cloud-based resources available from your existing WAN

Public Internet Access Limits Performance of Cloud-Based Software
Your company has cloud-based software and uses the public Internet to access it. Internet congestion and latency regularly affect your cloud access and routinely impact the performance of your cloud-based applications in a negative way. These performance issues must be resolved in order to maintain user productivity. Perhaps your organization is planning a move to the cloud. You need to ensure that once your resources are cloud-based, they will operate with the same availability and user experience as they do today. You cannot afford for either user experience or availability to be subject to unpredictable access to the cloud. And whether your data center applications are already in the cloud or they are heading there, you are most likely concerned about lack of security over the public Internet.
Bypass Public Internet with Direct Cloud Access
To address these concerns, you need a fast and reliable connection to your Cloud Service Provider (CSP). Express Cloud Access service delivers exactly that, with direct connectivity to the cloud that bypasses the public Internet providing security, performance superior to that available on the public Internet.

Because no two customer environments are the same, Spirit uses a careful, multi-phased, approach to ensure the successful deployment of our Managed Wireless Solution.
Gather Customer Requirements
In an effort to understand exactly how the wireless solution will perform, we work closely with the customer to gather critical information. This information includes details such as scaled floor plans, the number and type of devices requiring access, the types of applications used and their bandwidth requirements, areas of high user density, number of SSID’s required, security requirements, cosmetic constraints, and an understanding of the existing wired infrastructure.
Analyze Customer's Environment
A Spirit Wi-Fi expert will run a spectrum analysis that allows us to detect any RF energy that could potentially cause interference with the wireless solution design. This helps Spirit’s Wi-Fi expert make informed decisions during critical steps of the design process.
Design Wi-Fi Capacity Requirements
Implement with Predictive Modeling
All of the information compiled to this point, including scaled floor plans, can now be imported into our predictive modeling software that will allow us to “virtually” design the wireless infrastructure. While looking at how signal propagation will occur within the property, our expert also layers on the other requirements gathered during the process, ensuring that our design meets your requirements. The Wi-Fi expert will present you with different tools, such as heat maps, that will help you visualize the solution.
Test with Post-Deployment Survey
Following deployment, Spirit’s Wi-Fi expert will conduct a post- deployment survey confirming that what we predictively designed translates to reality. Like the predictive model, this step utilizes various visual tools.
