In an era of rapid digital adoption, organizations must transform their approach to networking to reduce operational costs and expand capabilities. Networking must provide a flexible foundation for digital transformation and free organizations to connect and optimize application performance in offices or anywhere a user may be. Software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN) is the next evolution in enterprise networking and solves growing challenges facing organizations in their IT estates.

Legacy networking no longer matches the needs of consumer-centric industries like healthcare, retail, finance, education, and many others. Organizations across all kinds of verticals are managing distributed working environments, increasingly complex ICT environments, and growing demands for optimized user experiences. SD-WAN is networking for a cloud-centric world and delivers connectivity with increased efficiency, agility, and trust. It fully integrates routing, security, centralized policy, and orchestration into a single network solution.

The challenge for many organizations is to find their path forward in network transformation and to capture the opportunity in SD-WAN. They need to build a business case, plan a migration, and ensure implementation happens with minimal business disruption. With expert support, organizations can transform their approach to networking and see immediate benefits from making the move to SD-WAN. Organizations that make the move today will create competitive advantages and see their networking move from being a barrier to an enabler of long-term digital transformation.

Selecting An SD-WAN Partner

Choosing the right SD-WAN provider will define the success of an organization's network transformation journey.

Every SD-WAN solution will have different strengths and weaknesses. All must deliver local and global coverage and give an organization the freedom to grow and connect sites wherever they may be.
