SD-WAN: a Win for Service Providers
The rise in online collaboration and rich media applications is driving enterprises to explore using Internet links for economical expansion of their private MPLS networks.
To satisfy these requirements, service providers need a solution to augment existing network services effectively. Both enterprises and their service providers must adapt their network architecture to accommodate the increasing shift of applications and datacenters to the cloud while delivering the expected levels of reliability, performance, and security.
The rapid delivery of additional value services and reduction of operational costs are driving providers to demand virtual services delivery and universal CPEs. Additionally, service providers benefit from the automation efficiencies of SDN with ease of programmability and abstraction extended from the datacenter to the complex configurations of the WAN.
