Getting Your Network Into Shape for the New Year

This year, skip the gym membership, and resolve to get your business’ network into shape with SD-WAN. Although SD-WAN has less than 1% market share today, Gartner predicts that up to 30% of users will be managing their WAN through software within three years. So, make it your goal to build a stronger, smarter network in the New Year.

Wait, what’s SD-WAN?

SD-WAN is a fast-growing buzzword, which is admittedly easy to gloss over. If you’re in the dark, we’ll fill you in:

SD-WAN (Software-Defined Wide Area Network) is a fast-growing buzzword that describes a specific application of software-defined networking technology applied to WAN connections, which are used to connect enterprise networks – including branch offices and data centers – over any geographic distances and with any connection technology. Basically, SD-WAN is software that defines how a business’ network selects which path is best, helps optimize existing traffic, and automatically makes corrections when issues arise. Network failure isn’t an option with SD-WAN.

Because it is software, SD-WAN integrates easily into your current network, making deployment and configuration quick and easy, even across large geographic distances. Compared to many current MPLS architectures, an SD-WAN solution can integrate multiple connections to optimize performance and speed, reduce costs and network failures, and increase security and network visibility.
