Digital Transformation, for all of it’s benefits, has also exponentially increased the complexity that an IT organisation needs to manage. As a result, legacy WAN networks have continued to become more complex, less agile, and overall have struggled to keep up with the pace of demands from today’s digital business.

Traditional WAN VS SD WAN

Traditional WAN
  • Poor WAN utilisation due to difficulties with policy-based routing
  • Slow and rigid to configure changes due to box-by-box approach
  • Multiple tools required for:
    • Provisioning and policy management
    • Application visibility
    • Traffic analysis
  • Packet centric approach to traffic forwarding
SD-WAN Drivers
  • Cloud adoption and the rise of hybrid WANs
  • Internet links with business class SLAs
  • Network hardware and software decoupling
  • Standardised interfaces
Software Defined WAN
  • Improved WAN utilisation due to better policy based routing
  • Make changes instantly and enforce standardised policy
  • Single pane of glass management
    • Provisioning and policy management
    • Application visibility and diagnostics
    • Traffic analysis
  • Application centric approach to traffic forwarding
