Modernizing the WAN to Drive Digital Business

Eager to better support critical digital business and cloud initiatives, many organizations are turning to the software-defined wide-area network (SD-WAN) approach. By creating an overlay network that moves network control into the cloud, SD-WAN accomplishes several feats. First, it simplifies the management and operation of a WAN. And second, by eliminating the need to deploy proprietary or specialized WAN technology using costly fixed circuits or proprietary hardware, SD-WAN can reduce network costs and complexity as well as increase network visibility and agility.
