Software-Defined Wide-Area Network (SD-WAN)
SD-WAN, is a software approach to engineering and managing agile, scalable wide-area networks. Offering ease of deployment and central manageability, SD-WAN can reduce costs and improve connectivity to branch offices.
SD-WAN simplifies the management and operation of a WAN by separating networking hardware from its control mechanism. More importantly, a SD-WAN enables companies to build higher performance WANs using lower-cost and commercially available internet access, enabling businesses to partially or completely replace more expensive connection technologies.
