What is SD-WAN

The Goal of SD-WAN is to enable businesses to wholly or partially replace rigid and expensive private WAN connections like MPLS.

SD-WAN is an acronym for software-defined networking in a wide area network (WAN). SD-WAN simplifies the management and operation of a WAN by decoupling (separating) the networking hardware from its control mechanism. This concept is similar to how software-defined networking implements virtualization technology to improve data center management and operation.

Why SD-WAN?

Network Performance

Cost-effective network at all times.  Optimized App routing, elimination of MPLS reliance

Manageability Lower

Lower administration and headcount costs with better control and increased network visibility.

Financial Performance

Broadband is as stable as MPLS today. Eliminate the need for legacy MPLS and save as much as 80%.

Network Reliability

Less than one second failover. No delay. 

Security

SD-WAN is as safe as Private MPLS.  Encryption and Security are key components of SD-WAN

Moves, Adds, and Changes

Turn on remote offices quickly. No longer wait weeks or months for legacy networking services and nodes.  Leverage 4G/LTE for instant deployments.
