Legacy WANs are Falling Short
Trends of SD-WAN at a Glance
Digital business transformation has increased the urgency for transforming WANs. As enterprises continue to move applications to the cloud, networking architectures such as SD-WAN have become increasingly important to accommodate cloud-based applications.
With more software as a service (SaaS)-based applications in the cloud rather than residing in centralized data centers, data traffic patterns shift. Enterprises see the ramifications of moving to the cloud loud and clear. Cloud-based apps and services can create a drag on app performance, boosting bandwidth costs and increasing data latency. Traditional wide area networks (WANs) aren’t equipped to handle these new data flows.
SD-WAN has already begun to change how customers manage branch offices to increase resiliency combined with low latency and jitter. The model for achieving this with today’s SD-WAN tools is to place artificial intelligence at either side of a multi-connection WAN, then perform real-time analytics based on defined application-specific settings that indicate which data flows should have priority over others.
