Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN)

A new beginning for branch networking

If there’s one part of IT standing in the way of business agility, it’s the enterprise WAN. Traditional MPLS networks can’t offer low-latency/high-performance access to cloud applications, and that means remote users have to settle for less from real-time apps like VoIP. In addition, the security and management requirements associated with disparate traffic flows have added to the complexity of managing branch operations, thus increasing operational (staffing) costs for many IT organizations.

To stay competitive, distributed organizations are constantly evolving to overcome today’s branch network challenges of expensive bandwidth, infrastructure complexity, and a rigid architecture. Today, that means evolving to SD-WAN.
