Businesses and their IT teams face three major challenges:

  • Increased access cost for MPLS-based bandwidth to support application performance

  • High complexity in branch deployments

  •  Architectural issues with traditional WAN that is both static and private, inhibiting the migration to dynamic and public cloud environments.

Benefit of SD-WAN

  • Business agility. Rapid deployment of WAN services (suchas bandwidth and firewall) to distributed branch operationswithout the need to send IT personnel on-site. Bandwidthcan be easily added (with additional circuits) or reduced asbusiness requirements evolve.

  • Internet economics. Internet connectivity (including cable,DSL and ethernet) is widely available, quick to deploy and afraction of the cost of equivalent MPLS circuits. SD-WANprovides the benefits of reliable, secure WAN service atInternet price points.

  • Optimized cloud architecture. SD-WAN eliminates thebackhaul penalties of traditional MPLS networks and leveragesthe Internet to provide secure, high-performance connections from the branch to cloud. With SD-WAN, remote users will seesignificant improvements in their experience when using thecloud/SaaS-based applications.
