Branch Office Challenges
Multiple Locations at Scale
From large and small offices to showroom booths, construction trailers, and pop‐up sites, all users expect predictable network and application access.
The Enterprise in Motion
Devices and endpoints in the branch are steadily increasing, including mobile and IoT. Remote site guest Wi-Fi is becoming a must-have.
Infrastructure for Everyone, Everywhere
Cloud-delivered SD-WAN helps remove the profusion of boxes and convoluted configurations that used to be required for a distributed workforce.
A cloud-provisioned network edge—including LTE and 5G—brings remote sites, with no IT staff needed, online in minutes.

Deliver Better End User Experiences
With SD-WAN, IT can orchestrate business, QoS and security policies, as well as application access, regardless of where the user or the application is. Flexible and location-independent, SD-WAN steers traffic directly between source and destination — mobile-worker or remote office, to IaaS or SaaS server — allocating bandwidth and prioritizing traffic to provide the optimal end-user experience.
Optimize Cloud Connectivity
SD-WAN delivers faster, better performance and higher quality access to SaaS applications and cloud resources, regardless of the user’s location. SD-WAN identifies application traffic, applies QoS policies and path selection to provide direct, reliable, high-performance access from any location to applications that reside in either the data center or the cloud.
Leverage Cost-Efficient Bandwidth
Operate over all available branch office links—private, broadband, cellular, whatever is available and affordable—in a simple and cost-effective manner with SD-WAN. SD-WAN aggregates disparate links into a single virtual conduit governed by single-point specifications for business, QoS and security policies. Available links and bandwidth are automatically detected, continuously monitored and traffic is steered to optimize throughput, bandwidth allocation, application performance, application availability, and end-user experience.
Secure the Network, Users, and Devices
Cloud-based applications, accessed by Internet-connected user devices, demand security applied flexibly and dynamically to decentralized traffic wherever it may flow, orchestrated from a single point. SD-WAN encrypts traffic where needed, when needed, with dynamic VPN tunnels, and applies firewalling at the cloud entry point to the virtual network.
