SD-WAN

SD-WAN enables your IT staff to radically simplify the management and operations of a WAN and ensures your business can easily prioritize and carefully route different type of data traffic according to your business needs and requirements.

What is SD-WAN?

 

Put simply, SD-WAN is an acronym for ‘software-defined networking’ in a ‘wide area network’ (WAN). An SD-WAN simplifies the management and operation of a WAN by separating the networking hardware from its control mechanism.

 

This represents a simplified and cost-effective way to WAN enriched by many other features such as resilience, security and quality of service (QoS), flexible deployment, simplified administration and troubleshooting. Many of the concepts underpinning SD-WAN (such as encryption, bonding, path control, overlay networks and subscription-based pricing) are not new. However, SD-WAN essentially wraps these technologies together, and presents them to enterprises as a new integrated offering. The use of SD-WAN technologies have seen a pretty dramatic up pick so that American marketing research and advisory firm Gartner predicted in 2015 that by the end of 2019 30% of enterprises will deploy SD-WAN technology in their branches.

The Benefits

 

Research has shown that businesses come across three distinct issues that drives them towards deploying SD-WAN and move away from private connections. In return, SD-WAN provides business with a solution that is:

 

  • Low cost
  • Reliable connection
  • Direct connectivity

 

An SD-WAN deployment from XCommNet enables your IT staff to radically simplify the management and operations of a WAN and ensures your business can easily prioritize and carefully route different type of data traffic according to your business needs and requirements.
