What is SD-WAN?

SD-WAN stands for Software Defined Wide Area Network. Businesses are seeing a dramatic growth in their WAN traffic with an increasing reliance on software to drive critical business functions. SD-WAN uses a central control function to direct this traffic across the WAN. The beauty of SD-WAN is that this traffic is transferred quickly, safely and smartly and by smartly we mean you can prioritise and even block irreverent or insignificant traffic.

Why choose SD-WAN?

SD-WAN offers an alternative to traditional technologies, providing users with enriched management experience, zero touch configuration and dynamic path selection along with  VPN capability. The benefits provided by switching to SD-WAN are considerable compared to more traditional WAN products. One significant advantage is a considerable reduction in running costs along with better provisioning times and improved branch uptime.
