Software-defined wide area networking, or SD-WAN, provides the benefits of software-defined networking (SDN) technology to raditionally hardware -based networking. It is an overlay architecture providing a networking foundation that is much easier to manage than legacy WANs, essentially moving the control layer to the cloud — and in the process, centralizing and simplifying network management. This overlay design abstracts software from hardware, enabling network virtualization and making the network more elastic.
What Do Enterprises Need in an SD-WAN Architecture?
Enterprises have been increasingly investing in open, flexible cloud solutions, and SD-WAN represents an effort to engineer similar benefits in their data center architecture. SD-WAN architecture is particularly beneficial to environments separated by distance — for example, between main offices and branch offices. Whereas traditional WAN can be expensive and complex, SD – WAN architecture reduces recurring network costs, offers network -wide control and visibility, and simplifies the technology with zero-touch deployment and centralized management. Key to the SD-WAN architecture is that it can communicate with all network endpoints without the need for
external mechanisms or additional protocols.
Types of SD-WAN Architecture
We at Jenetwors offer several general types of SD-WAN architecture — namely, remises-based, MPLS-based, and Internet-based.
Each of these architecture types varies in cost and benefits, and might be more or less appropriate for a given environment. Regardless of the type, all of these solutions offer a full range of SD-WAN capabilities.
Our main mission as a business is to provide tailor-made solutions that suit your business and ensure smooth running of operations while reducing cost.
That is why we have continued partnering with businesses and they all have been very satisfied with our solutions.
