The Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) is a specific application of Software-Defined Networking (SDN) technology applied to WAN connections, which are used to connect enterprise networks – including branch offices and data centers – over large geographic distances.
Geographically distributed enterprises are embracing Software-Defined Wide Area Networks (SD-WANs) at an accelerating pace. Why? Because SD-WANs dramatically lower costs, and they help businesses become more agile by enhancing business productivity.
As applications continue to move to the cloud, networking professionals are quickly realizing that traditional WANs were never architected for a dynamic, internet-based environment. Backhauling traffic from the branch to headquarters to the internet and back again doesn’t make sense. Employees sometimes even find their business apps run faster at home or on their mobile devices than at the office.
