With the advent of SaaS applications, Collaboration software, internet-connected devices, the Cloud and big data, fast connections become more and more critical. Application traffic flows continuously change. A growing number of organizations discover the benefits of SD-WAN, the fast Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN).
SD-WAN is not only cheaper and faster than the traditional MPLS connection, but specifically provides more flexibility. You can use several types of connections: Internet, glass fiber, ADSL, 4&5G, etc. As a result, maximum flexibility is achieved and upscaling is easy. By adding a line more bandwidth is created. SD-WAN renders connections reliable: if one line fails, you automatically switch to another line without downtime. With SD-WAN it is easy and fast to establish what application uses what line, and what priority it will get on the Wide Area Network.
