For businesses that are reluctant to adopt software-defined wide-area networking (SD-WAN), it’s important to remember that it doesn’t have to be an all-or-nothing migration. Easing into the many proven benefits of SD-WAN – such as reduced total cost of ownership (TCO), flexible bandwidth options, and unprecedented simplicity of networks and applications – can be a gradual process, without sacrificing existing investments in traditional networking infrastructure.
As hype of SD-WAN dies down, IT leaders are realizing that the technology doesn't need to replace an existing network solution. Instead, SD-WAN serves as a complementary solution, enhancing network functionalities, providing transparency and an overall better end-user experience. Selling partners are finding success by selling SD-WAN as an ancillary service to opportunities that involve existing network solutions like MPLS or for enhancing voice solutions such as UCaaS.
Today’s wide-area network is being challenged like never before. These environments are required to handle an unprecedented volume of data – adjusting for customer demands in real-time while staying on the cutting edge of innovation. The ultimate goal is agility, aligning resources for whatever challenge comes next.
This is SD-WAN in a nutshell: it transforms the delivery of Wide Area Network (WAN) services to business users, improving connectivity and WAN management. Research firms forecast a continued bright future for SD-WAN and its near-primacy in the network services market.
