Additional hardware will need to be installed to implement SD-WAN and may also replace redundant network functions. In general, SD-WAN can be deployed alongside existing network infrastructure like MPLS or broadband while you gradually transition to SD-WAN.
Is SD-WAN right for you?
Today, many organizations face challenges with their WAN architecture. SD-WAN enables you to meet your business needs faster and more effectively and is a great solution to the high costs, insufficient bandwidth at branch locations and data centers, and poor SaaS application performance that come with traditional WANs.
An SD-WAN solution could be right for you if:
You struggle with unreliable application performance and availability
Find dependable performance that meets service level agreements (SLAs), even during an outage or other network event.
You are experiencing network sprawl, with a complex combination of devices and appliances
Experience greater agility and performance while using less bandwidth with a faster, simpler WAN deployment.
Your organization is undergoing a merger, acquisition, or simply experiencing business growth
SD-WAN makes it easy to scale up or down to accommodate new business locations and employee growth.
You experience network outages, even during normal operations
Prioritize your applications to ensure business critical applications always use the optimal path.
