WAN & Carrier Services as a Service

Leverage connectivity and WAN solutions

Today’s enterprises require high-performance, cross-location networks to connect hybrid IT environments and multiple sites. This includes connectivity (underlay), which CANCOM offers customers as carrier services with all available access options. Building on this, CANCOM offers various WAN services (overlay) to meet all customer requirements in the business customer environment. As an Internet service provider and system house, CANCOM offers both carrier services and WAN from a single source and “as a service”, i.e. standardized and as a complete solution. This enables your company to access all your devices and corporate data at any time and from any location. 

That’s why you benefit from WAN & Carrier Services aaS!

  • A single point of contact for all components of the solution: from the data line to SD-WAN (instead of multiple service managers for different components)

  • Faster response times and problem resolution through a single service desk

  • Proactive service through holistic monitoring and automated ticketing in case of incidents

  • Clear ownership and accountability

  • Standardized contract terms, scalability and OPEX model with monthly billing


Our Mission: To provide you with the best possible network from a single source – flexible, scalable and cost-optimized

CANCOM offers you WAN and carrier services “as a service” (XaaS). This means that you receive standardized services in an all-inclusive package. Think of WAN as traffic on a highway. The carrier services are the lanes of the highway and the WAN services are the navigation system that decides how the vehicle – in this case the data – can best reach its destination. As with all CANCOM XaaS offerings, you don’t have to do anything yourself, but can receive all solution components as a service from us. This means you are always at the cutting edge of technology. You also save on capital expenditure thanks to scalability and an OPEX model with monthly billing.

WAN (Wide Area Network), Carrier Services, Underlay and Overlay work together to provide network infrastructure and services: The underlay forms the physical foundation, while the overlay adds specific functions or services. With the CANCOM XaaS offerings, we cover all these areas. In addition, we offer you a high-performance basic infrastructure for your data traffic: With the CANCOM backbone, we are the only system house in Germany to have a fiber-optic network that we use exclusively . Our network offers a direct connection to Internet nodes, Germany-wide coverage and multiple redundantly secured data transmission. We thus provide you with a strong “backbone” for your corporate network in the truest sense of the word.

Underlay Solutions:

Physical Access Technologies

How to build the foundation for networking

Underlay refers to the physical network infrastructure that provides basic connectivity and transport services. This includes core network elements such as routers, switches, fiber, and other hardware components. The underlay network is responsible for transporting the actual data packets from one point to another and is designed for high reliability and efficiency. It provides the physical foundation for carrier services. Our “as a service” offerings include Internet connectivity and site networking based on a variety of technologies.

These are our services:

  • xDSL up to 250 Mbps

  • Ethernet based on copper and fiber optic cables with a bandwidth of up to 100 Gbps

  • WLL Wireless Local Loop with bandwidth up to 10 Gbps

Overlay solutions: The Software Layer of the Network

SD-WAN is a software-defined networking (SDN) solution that intelligently manages network traffic across multiple connections, including MPLS, broadband Internet, LTE, and others. SD-WAN automates network control and configuration using software and virtualization technologies, enabling enterprises to make their wide area networks more efficient. Other key features of SD-WAN include built-in security, real-time dynamic adaptation to network conditions, centralized management interfaces, cloud integration to connect branch offices, and scalability. This allows you to adapt the technology as your needs evolve, whether it is adding new locations or making more efficient use of bandwidth.

MPLS is a traditional, hardware-based networking technology that routes network traffic along predefined paths. This is done by assigning labels to data packets. Information is not transmitted over the public Internet, but over dedicated and private connections, making it more difficult for attackers to intercept and eavesdrop on information. As a result, MPLS meets the highest security requirements. Defined quality parameters allow MPLS circuits to prioritize critical applications such as video content or Voice over IP (VoIP). In addition, redundant paths ensure less downtime, high availability and performance. The CANCOM MPLS network reduces your operating costs, because we take care of operation and proactive service, and automatically handle faults via 24/7 monitoring by our Network Operation Center.

SD-WAN Cloud Connect, also known as Cloud on Ramp, enables enterprises to create a high-performance, secure, flexible, and direct connection between their networks and cloud services. The public cloud environment is treated like a customer site. This is achieved through a combination of intelligent path selection, cloud integration and security features. SD-WAN Cloud Connect continuously analyzes network conditions and automatically selects the best path for traffic. Built-in security ensures that data is protected in transit. Redundant connections reduce the risk of outages. SD-WAN Cloud Connect is scalable, flexible, and easy to manage.

Direct Cloud Connect is a dedicated network connection between an enterprise and a cloud platform. The scalable solution provides enterprises with a private, high-performance connection that allows them to access cloud resources directly, rather than bypassing the public Internet. Direct Cloud Connect dramatically improves the performance, security, and reliability of cloud services. In addition, Direct Cloud Connect keeps network bandwidth high, ensuring consistent performance for cloud applications regardless of other external factors. Important traffic can be prioritized to ensure that business-critical applications get the network resources they need. Encryption and security protocols ensure that sensitive data is transferred securely between the enterprise and the cloud.
