SD WAN

SD-WAN is a technology for configuring and implementing an enterprise WAN based on software-defined networking (SDN) to effectively route traffic to remote locations like branch offices. This technology provides agility and flexibility benefits of removing the burden of traffic management from physical devices and transferring it to a software, the essence of SDN.

Top SD-WAN Benefits Are:  
  • Increased benefit at a lowered cost
  • Centralized management across branch networks
  • Full visibility to networks
  • provides enterprises with multiple options for connection type and vendor selection while building their networks.
The primary feature of SD-WAN is that it lets customers create a single network infrastructure that includes many connection types such as broadband, multi-protocol label switching (MPLS) or Wireless LTE. Customers can take advantage of this technology to rely less on less expensive private MPLS connections and use cheaper, public connections for less sensitive data. You could also switch transports, the cable or wireless infrastructure, connecting branch office and data centers, mix and match them based on bandwidth availability and quickly easily spin up new connections to remote locations.

Businesses could benefit from SD-WAN by removing expensive routing hardware and instead provisioning connectivity and services from the cloud. It also provides increased flexibility, allowing the business to scale connectivity up and down for peak-and-valley demand. Therefore you can improve your business connectivity between branch locations, main office, and the cloud.  This flexibility also means that businesses can avoid over-provisioning further lowering overall WAN expenses.
