SD-WAN is an acronym that stands for Software Defined Wide Area Network. Here we break down the jargon and share what SD-WAN is and how it can help your business:

SD-WAN, or Software Defined Wide Area Network is the newest capability in the world of WAN. As businesses face growing bandwidth demand and restricted network budgets, SD-WAN provides a solution to optimize WAN design without sacrificing performance and security.

Historically, a WAN connection is the go-to solution for businesses using proprietary technology and hardware. It is expensive to install but has allowed businesses to control data across multiple locations.

The SD (or Software Defined) addition to a WAN connection commutes this expensive communication approach to a cost-effective, solid business decision. The software allows for a fluid model as Network Control is migrated to the Cloud.
