What is SD-WAN
Software Defined - Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) is a combination of technologies
designed to offer a simpler approach to the WAN. It’s being driven largely by the
decreasing cost of bandwidth and the increase in cloud applications that reside
outside of the legacy data center. SD-WAN can be deployed over existing WAN
connections, whether they are Internet (DIA, broadband, LTE) or private (MPLS,
private line), in order to create a secure, private, fully meshed network. It offers
simplified management, quicker turn-up, better application performance, improved
resiliency, and cost savings when compared to traditional approaches.
