SD-WAN Basic optimizes IT infrastructure control and management by transforming your legacy network into architecture. It simplifies branch office connectivity, optimizes application performance, and increases network agility. It also lowers total costs by providing more resource usage through automated branch and WAN architecture to fulfill modern IT business initiatives.
SD-WAN aggregates diverse network circuits like broadband, DIA, LTE, 4G, and 5G FWA (Fixed Wireless Access) within applicable sites. These circuits can either be added to existing MPLS to create a hybrid network, or utilized to replace MPLS using all-Internet wired and wireless connections.
One of the key elements of SD-WAN is application-awareness. It understands individual applications with corresponding SLA requirements, and translates them into policies that the network must adhere to. This provides active network and application experience monitoring that ensures optimal traffic delivery. The monitoring tool provides better IT insights into applications, devices, users, and the network, to ensure adherence to your business goals and objectives. This gives your IT better control to meet business requirements across branches, and data centers.
