Benefits of SD-WAN

The traditional WAN infrastructure is limited to connecting data centers to remote branches and sites or users across a widely distributed campus. WANs experience an unprecedented surge of traffic when organizations adopt a cloud-first strategy. Legacy hub-and-spoke WANs were not designed to manage the volume and unpredictable nature of internet and cloud network loads. IT professionals are adding cost-correct broadband services to relieve the strain on their WANs and meet their users’ service level requirements.

On average, roughly 70% of enterprise applications run on the cloud or with a SaaS provider
The SD-WAN market is expected to grow from USD 1.9 billion in 2020 to USD 8.4 billion in 2025
The growth of the global SD-WAN market from 2020 to 2025 represents a CAGR of over 34%

Managing a Hybrid Network is Not a Simple Task

Managing a patchwork of different networks, connections, applications, clouds, and technologies while maintaining user satisfaction and cybersecurity is challenging. IT professionals are transforming their infrastructures into an SD-WAN (software-defined WAN) to overcome these challenges.

SD-WANs deliver the intelligence and agility needed to unify traditional WANs and newer broadband connections into a single, easy to administer, secure, software-defined network. Policies and service level agreements dynamically manage SD-WANs. Traffic is no longer directed along a predetermined path but along the path that will ensure the prescribed quality of service. Traffic routing is automatic and dynamic, requiring minimal administration.
