Best SD-WAN Providers

You Are Here

SD-WAN is a pretty common word these days. The abbreviation stands for software-defined networking in a wide area network (WAN). The main proposition of an SD-WAN is that, it helps in the management and operation of a WAN by simplifying the whole thing. It is able to achieve this by the decoupling (separating) of the networking hardware from its control mechanism.

This concept derives a lot from a fairly older technology in which software-defined networking implements virtualization technologies to make data center management and operation a lot more efficient.
