Virtualize the WAN

SD-WAN

Compose a seamless experience between users and applications in today’s cloud-enabled digital enterprise with the next wave of networking technology: SD-WAN.

4 Reasons Why

About

Compose the Next-Wave Network

Traditional networking is outdated and outmoded. It was never designed to deal with the demands of today’s digital enterprise: globally distributed, cloud-enabled and always on.

As a result, WANs have become expensive, complicated, difficult to manage, and unreliable — with application performance suffering as a result.

An evolved network is needed to help secure and accelerate the digital transformation. SD-WAN is a transformational networking approach to assure optimal application performance, deliver increased network agility, and significantly reduce cost.

Why

Transform the Enterprise

SD-WAN solutions provide the software abstraction to create a network overlay and decouple network software services from the underlying hardware.

4 Reasons Why

Simplify WAN Operations

Provision branch offices in minutes with automated zero-touch deployment. Centrally manage your WAN from the cloud with global visibility and remediation control. Scale quickly with automation, outcome-driven policies, and end-to-end analytics.

Assure App Performance

Optimize application access performance over any type of WAN link with the intrinsic ability to determine deliver content across multiple transports. Deliver desired quality for business-critical applications through policy-based prioritization, intelligent traffic steering, continuous link monitoring, and dynamic remediation.

Choices in Edge Security

Customize and enforce intelligent security policies throughout the entire network. Easily insert third-party firewall and cloud security services in any traffic route. Protect, prioritize, and isolate traffic via the zero-trust model and end-to-end segmentation.

On-Ramp to Any Cloud

Directly access SaaS, hybrid and multi-cloud through gateway as a service. Enable easy cloud adoption with managed on-ramp to any cloud. Reduce latency to cloud workloads with no data center backhaul.

Capabilities

Hybrid WAN

SD-WAN uses deep application recognition, dynamic traffic steering, path selection, and link condition analytics to optimize your existing Hybrid WAN links and bandwidth use — ensuring enterprise-grade performance and availability for applications on-premises and in cloud.

Cloud-First Approach

SD-WAN leverages a cloud-delivered approach to support your growing branch network, multi-cloud environment, and SaaS adoption. SD-WAN’s transport-independent architecture, intelligent traffic steering, centralized management, and zero-touch deployment provide optimized and automated secure access to cloud.

Policy-Driven Networking

SD-WAN applies policy-driven networking to proactively manage the network via intelligent, customizable business policies. With SD-WAN, you can set policies for traffic segmentation, application priorities, security services insertion, and more, to automate network configuration and processes.

Edge Routing or Branch Routing

SD-WAN replaces the branch router to improve routing functionality, simplify IT configurations and installations, and facilitate centralized management of the branch network — enabling you to scale quickly and securely.

Security Services

SD-WAN centralizes management of network security, enforces network-wide security policies, and provides visibility into network usage and compliance. With SD-WAN, you can insert third-party firewall and cloud security services in any traffic route — allowing branch users to securely access the data center, SaaS applications, and the cloud.

Features

Deliver Secure, Fast, and Reliable Access to the Cloud

As branch networks grow and need direct access to cloud resources and SaaS applications, traditional WAN remains complex to deploy and data center dependent. SD-WAN enables branch agility and scalability, aggregates existing transport links into a virtual unified pool of resources to optimize performance, and provides secure access to cloud.
