Software-Defined WAN

 

Software-Defined WAN  

Software-Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN) is a transformational approach to simplify branch office networking and assure optimal application performance.

Unlike traditional WANs, SD-WAN delivers increased network agility and cost reduction. Software-Defined WAN has its roots in Software-Defined Networking (SDN), the underlying principle of which is to abstract the network hardware and transport characteristics from the applications that use the network. SD-WAN solutions provide the software abstraction to create a network overlay and decouple network software services from the underlying hardware.

Traditional WANs based on conventional routers are not cloud-friendly. Unlike the traditional router-centric WAN architecture, the SD-WAN model is designed to fully support applications hosted in on-premise datacentres, public or private clouds and SaaS solutions such as Salesfore.com, Workday, Office365 and Dropbox, while delivering the highest levels of application performance.

Datec can assist in implementing SD-WAN solution to simplify branch network, optimize application performance, deliver branch agility, and reduce costs.
