What is SD WAN?
SD WAN stands for Software Defined Wide Area Network. SD Wan is a virtual WAN architecture that enables businesses to connect users to applications in a secure manner.
An SD WAN utilises a centralised control function to securely and intelligently direct traffic across the WAN. This increases application performance, and delivers a high quality user experience, resulting in increased business productivity, agility and reduced costs for IT.
Unlike traditional WAN architecture, the SD WAN model is designed to fully support applications hosted in on-premise data centres, public and private clouds, all whilst not compromising any performance capability.
Advantages of SD WAN
SD WAN provides WAN simplification, lower costs, bandwidth efficiency and a seamless integration to the cloud with considerable application performance, especially for critical applications - without sacrificing security and data privacy. SD WAN simplifies business operations with automation and cloud-based management.
