Software Defined WAN (SD-WAN)
Traditional WAN architecture is based on multiple devices stacked in multiple locations, managed separately, and with independent WAN links connecting each office. SD-WAN (Software-Defined WAN) is a network operated independent of the underlying hardware, with multiple links from different service providers to form a unified pool of bandwidth. SD-WAN solutions provide superior performance and high availability for applications independent of the underlying transport links.
SD-WAN offers all the advantages of cloud services – faster deployment, reduced cost, and flexibility to scale as required. SD-WAN can also help accelerate and improve the end user experience on remote and low speed network links.
Many SD-WAN offerings can now be consumed as a service and can result in large savings when compared to traditional WAN technologies such as MPLS.
NetStrategy can help you determine which SD-WAN option is best, and help you design and deploy a cost effective, flexible and reliable solution optimised for your specific requirements, whether installed in your data centre (anywhere in the country) or utilising public or hybrid cloud.
