What is SD-WAN?
Software-Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN) is a transformational application of software-defined networking designed to simplify branch office networking and maximize application performance.
In comparison to traditional WAN, SD-WAN delivers cost reduction, 10x faster deployments, Central management, and increased cloud application performance. SD-WAN enables business managers to deploy any type of internet connection from MPLS to broadband to LTE easily, quickly, and with increased quality, reliability, and security.
Advantages of SD-WAN
- SD-WAN solutions provide the flexibility to move quickly while maintaining a high level of performance at a low cost.
- Simplify Branch Network
- Optimize Application Performance
- Create Branch Agility
- Reduce Costs
Benefits of SD-WAN
The Benefits of an SD-WAN network have set a new standard in the market. Whether utilizing existing infrastructure or implementing an entirely new network, SD-WAN will help your organization.
Traditional WAN vs. SD-WAN
Create WAN agility and efficiency at a lower cost using software based virtualization
SD-WAN allows for deployments 10x faster at a savings up to 65% from traditional WAN.
The Struggles of Traditional WAN:
- Very Expensive
- Datacenter Dependent
- Unpredictable Performance
Hybrid WAN vs. Internet as WAN
Create a flexible enterprise-grade network to every branch with SD-WAN and achieve dynamic path selection, zero touch deployment, traffic steering, single-click orchestration, business and security policy setting, and cloud VPN.
Hybrid WAN vs Internet as WAN?
Hybrid WAN: SD-WAN can fill the gap and take your Hybrid WAN to the next level.
- Optimal Performance
- Dynamic Multi-Path Selection
Internet as WAN
Branch Office Deployment
Connect your sites effortlessly. Achieve seemless branch connectivity from a single portal 10x faster.
With Traditional WANs, deployment is a long and drawn out process requiring months of coordination, multiple pieces of hardware at each site, and local configuration. Even after an organization has completed the arduous task of provisioning a traditional WAN, making changes and adding new sites brings an entirely new set of challenges.
SD-WAN changes all of this:
Is it Secure? SD-WAN offers various kinds of security… accommodating the needs of even the most sensitive environments.
Accessing cloud applications from multiple devices in multiple locations presents new challenges in network security today. How does an organization effectively secure traffic when it leaves the private MPLS network? SD-WAN can help.
The flexibility of branch deployment models allows for the level of security you need:
Cloud-based SD-WAN can leverage hosted security facilities, both for VPN termination, as well as for insertion of other services including firewalling and cloud-based-security, such as Zscaler.
