SD-WAN removes network-related barriers

As organizations evolve in the era of digital transformation, they often discover that the networks that have driven their business forward in the past are now slowing them down. They know they need to replace the hodgepodge of systems they’ve accumulated over time that are creating network barriers with a solution that’s more integrated, more efficient, and easier to manage.

For many, that means migrating to the cloud, which can create additional network strains.

To stay competitive, distributed organizations are looking to SD-WAN to overcome today’s branch network challenges of expensive bandwidth, infrastructure complexity, and rigid architectures.

 
Companies that want to avoid the challenges of cloud migration should consider upgrading their network strategy and design with an SD-WAN solution that is:

 

  1. Optimized for cloud performance both now and in the future.
  2. Configured to maximize the efficiency of existing hardware throughout the migration to cloud services.
  3. Offered as a managed service to free in-house IT staff from the day-to-day network management, maintenance, and troubleshooting. This allows internal IT resources to focus on core initiatives and innovate on a modernized infrastructure.
