The SD-WAN Network Revolution Has Arrived

September 11, 2017

Traditional networks simply weren’t built to meet the ever-evolving demands of the modern world.

Today’s business networks are faced with many requirements – including growing strains on WAN bandwidth, inefficient routing protocols, unpredictable traffic patterns, rising security threats and mobile devices driving apps and data to the cloud.

Managing such complex network requirements can be overwhelming.

But you don’t have to do it alone.

The SD-WAN Network Revolution

SD-WAN, or Software-Defined Wide-Area Network, is central to a network revolution that is allowing businesses to virtualize their hardware, boost speeds and control costs. Its benefits include strong security, improved transport options, intelligent path control and automatic provisioning.

With SD-WAN, servers and end devices act as both the destination and source of data, as well as actively participate in the routing process. Data transmitted on its Virtual Dispersive Network (VDN) is forced in multiple streams that each use other clients as route deflectors – being decrypted and reassembled only once it reaches its destination.

This means SD-WAN overlay can overcome the multi-point transmissions found in traditional site-to-site VPN connections – all on a single internet connection.

The ability to improve and secure internet connectivity, combined with its affordability, makes SD-WAN competitive with legacy WAN technologies like T-1 or MPLS. Its network architecture features end-to-end encryption across the entire network – integrating security, policy and orchestration to bring about a more unified solution.
