Twenty years of change in technology has created new types of businesses and disrupted entire industries. The current shift from Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS)-based networks to Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) is such a game changer as organizations rely more and more on mobile devices, IoT and media-rich applications to perform a wide range of activities in order to create gains in productivity, efficiency and cost reduction.
Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) has been commanding a lot of attention lately, and rightly so. Network traffic is increasing by 30% year-over-year, and by 2020, there’s projected to be 1.2 billion mobile-connected devices. The increase in traffic means that traditional wide-area networks (WANs) are being pushed to their limits, especially in organizations with multiple locations. To alleviate unprecedented demands from mobile users, security threats, and cloud applications, more organizations are turning to SD-WAN. SD-WAN offers a better approach to WAN connectivity by solving the digital transformation challenges of traditional WAN architectures.
