What is SD-WAN?
Until recently, WAN management has primarily relied on dedicated MPLS circuits to provide network security and connectivity. However, shifting to hybrid working and adopting cloud services requires more flexible solutions. Software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN) is a virtual network architecture which enables organisations to securely connect users to applications whilst achieving transport independence across leased lines, 4G/5G LTE, broadband and other types of connection.
SD-WAN securely and intelligently directs traffic across the WAN from a primary control centre by leveraging load balancing capabilities, intelligent VPN and routing technologies. For your organisation, this means efficient bandwidth use, reliable connectivity across all applications and increased network performance – not to mention a significant reduction in IT overheads.
