SD-WAN: SOFTWARE-DEFINED WAN

Redefine Your Network for the Cloud Era

Automation

Organizations striving for digital transformation must embrace new technologies and practices. Traditional methods for managing WANs are too slow, complex, and error-prone to match the rate of change needed in networks today. SD-WAN allows for tremendous efficiencies to be realized with automation, centralized control and policy-based management, which enable IT to quickly adapt networks to meet changing business requirements.

Speed

Network performance is important for business-critical applications and unified communications. But not all network traffic needs to move quickly. SD-WAN combines traditional quality-of-service with the ability to steer the traffic of different applications and users onto appropriate paths. SD-WAN can also monitor the health of WAN links and automatically route traffic onto an alternate path when the primary path becomes congested.

Cost-Effectiveness 

Many organizations rely solely on MPLS to connect enterprise sites. Considerable savings can be realized by moving some (or all) WAN traffic from MPLS to broadband Internet. SD-WAN makes it easy to blend MPLS with broadband Internet in any number of topologies. While there is no doubt that cost savings is a key benefit of SD-WAN adoption, it is not always easy to understand how much can you save and what is your true return on investment (ROI).
