SD-WAN is a network technology that manages enterprise connectivity and simplifies management through multiple WAN connections. It uses virtual WAN connections to connect enterprise networks to achieve faster, reliable, and uninterrupted network connections at optimum costs. SD-WAN provides network administrators with the flexibility to choose the appropriate network which connects enterprise networks, including branch offices, remote offices, and cloud-based centres over vast geographical distances. SD-WAN solutions also help administrators in setting up automated policies to ensure that data transmission is governed to meet technical and business targets in an optimum and effective manner.

According to Manish Chand Thakur, Analyst at Quadrant Knowledge Solutions, “SD-WAN is increasingly being perceived as a next-generation networking technology to support enterprise digital transformation and cloud-first strategies. SD-WAN uses software-defined networking techniques for managing and controlling multiple WAN connections, such as broadband internet, wireless, MPLS, 4G, 5G, and LTE. It provides separation of network data and includes a centralized application controller to manage network traffic flows, packet priority, routing policy, and network policy. SD-WAN’s software-centric approach simplifies branch office networking, improves branch agility, optimizes application performance, and provides a significant reduction in capital and operational expenditure.”
