What is SD-WAN?

The Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) is a virtual WAN architecture that allows enterprises to leverage any combination of transport services – including MPLS, LTE and broadband internet service. This gives businesses more flexibility when it comes to designing their network with cutting edge technology in order for them be able access all applications remotely, while also being protected by next generation security measures.

Traditional Networks vs SD-WAN

The conventional way of getting internet access is through a router. This device helps you get online and connect with other people who also use routers, but it was never made for cloud-based services. This is because those require backhauling all traffic including your data from branch offices or remote sites to one place where they can be inspected before being sent out again on the network – usually located close enough so that there isn’t too much delay between sending then receiving. 

Unlike the traditional router-centric WAN architecture, the SD-WAN model is designed to fully support applications hosted in on-premises data centers, public or private clouds, and SaaS services such as, Workday, Dropbox, Microsoft 365, and more, while delivering the highest levels of application performance.
