It’s the coolest thing around. Software-defined networking in a wide area network, (SD-WAN) replaces multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) networks — saving money and providing redundancy.
SD-WAN simplifies the management and operation of a WAN by separating the networking hardware from its control mechanism. This concept is similar to how software-defined networking implements virtualization technology to improve data center management and operation.
A key application of SD-WAN is allowing companies to build higher performance WANs using lower cost leased lines, enabling businesses to partially or wholly replace more expensive private WAN connection technologies such as MPLS. ITD facilitates this great solution for enterprise clients with more than 10 locations.
