Do you have mission critical voice, data and internet access services that needs to be up and running 24/7/365? Whether you have a single location or are managing multi locations, businesses today require their high speed internet access and data network be highly reliable. This is mostly due to the ever increasing dependence on high speed internet access for the migration to cloud based services such as Hosted PBX, data backup, and SaaS applications such as Sales Force, Skype, Office 365, Web Ex, etc. This is where SD-WAN enters the picture to provide the solution.
But what is SD-WAN?
SD-WAN, short for Software-Defined Wide Area Networking, employs a software-based controller that automates service management and implements policy-based routing over multiple connection types (e.g., MPLS, coax, copper or fiber internet access, wireless, etc.). SD-WAN essentially adds a layer of intelligence that provides real-time control and visibility over network and application performance. This, in turn, lets you boost your bandwidth with widely available, low-cost broadband by overcoming the security, reliability and performance challenges to using the Internet for critical business applications.
The many benefits of SD-WAN are readily acknowledged by industry analysts and CIOs alike. Indeed, research firm IDC found that half of U.S. enterprises were considering migrating to SD-WAN in the next two years.
