CIOs in nearly every industry recognize the benefits Software-Defined Wide Area Networks (SD-WAN) can bring to their organizations. SD-WAN is proven to deliver better performance and greater control over traditional WAN infrastructure and the application traffic flowing across the network. SD-WAN technology is built specifically to handle all of today’s cloud-based applications, providing increased network efficiency and giving CIOs the agility they need to manage exponential traffic growth.
With the right SD-WAN in place, network administrators can orchestrate traffic automatically, deploy applications faster, provide exceptional user experience, and bring down costs. But not all SD-WAN solutions and providers are the same, and with the technology changing so quickly, how can you determine the best fit for your organization?
Here are five key considerations to help you determine the right SD-WAN platform and provider for your needs:
We know choosing a provider to deliver on your precise, strategic SD-WAN business goals can be a daunting task. The decision involves not only the considerations we’ve laid out above but also aligning the value proposition with the overall costs for implementation and ongoing support. Ideally, we want to empower CIOs with the flexibility to engineer an SD-WAN solution with the best combination of traffic management and control technologies while improving the performance and security of cloud applications across all branches and users.
