10 Reasons to Use SD-WAN
In today’s business environment, you can’t afford to have poor Internet connections. With so many business-critical applications hosted in the cloud, downtime or unreliable connections can cost you dearly.
In addition, if your business has multiple locations, you also need to connect all the offices through an external network and the most common solution is using WAN connections.
However, WAN connections can be slow and unreliable at times but thankfully, you don’t have to put up with it anymore.
By switching to an SD-WAN technology, you can increase uptime while saving on operational cost.
What’s SD-WANSD-WAN stands for Software-Defined Wide-Area Network. While most companies use WAN connections for communications between multiple locations, the solution is often inefficient, costly and inflexible. The ROI on traditional WAN is unsatisfactory, given SD-WAN as an alternative.
SD-WAN is a software-defined upgrade or update to traditional WAN technologies. The network control is hosted in the cloud and the connections to each site can combine fibre, broadband and traditional technology to deliver flexibility and cost-savings.
