The network plays a fundamental role in enabling the shift to digital. But it simply cannot fulfill this function while it is hardware-bound and hard-coded.
The network must become cloudlike to enable delivery of dynamic, rich digital services quickly and easily. This means shifting away from old approaches that require configuration of individual boxes to an approach that is software-defined, based on policy and orchestration. It’s time for SD-WAN.
Read this white paper from ZK Research to:
- Understand the challenges of traditional networks
- Chart a path to SD-WAN
- Learn what to look for in SD-WAN vendors.
Cloud, mobility, unified communications and the Internet of Things (IoT) are now the fastest-growing application types, and they drive significantly different traffic patterns compared to a decade ago. The evolving business environment is putting new demands on the WAN that cannot be met with traditional architectures.
