What is SD-WAN?
Software-Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN) is a transformational approach to simplify branch office networking and assure optimal application performance.
Unlike traditional WANs, SD-WAN delivers increased network agility and cost reduction. Software-Defined WAN has its roots in Software-Defined Networking (SDN), the underlying principle of which is to abstract the network hardware and transport characteristics from the applications that use the network.
Advantages of SD-WAN Solutions
SD-WAN solutions provide the software abstraction to create a network overlay and decouple network software services from the underlying hardware
Simplify Branch Network
Provision branch offices faster with simplified configuration, orchestration and on-going monitoring with centralized troubleshooting tools. Simplify branch infrastructure with the ability to insert network services on the branch edge, in the cloud or in the regional and enterprise data centers.
Optimize Application Performance
Optimize application performance over Hybrid or Internet links with direct, secure access to enterprise and cloud applications. SD-WAN provides consolidated monitoring and visibility across multiple WAN links and service providers.
Deliver Branch Agility
Enable multiple links, devices and services to coexist and interoperate with incumbent solutions and make the branch agile. Users, applications and security policies are all tied together across the entire network for ease of control, management, administration and support.
Deliver Hybrid WAN with ease and enable branch offices with ordinary broadband as enterprise-grade WAN. Reduce hardware-delivery costs by choosing from deployment options such as virtual-machine on a commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) device, virtual machine on an existing x86-based router or a purpose-built VeloCloud Edge device.
