What the heck is a Managed SD-WAN |

  • n order to meet your customers’ needs, the WAN must evolve. However, re-architecting the WAN is much easier said than done. You must analyze a complex array of drivers that are changing the way you do business, including:

    • Cloud Services: Public, private, and hybrid cloud services are driving requirements around the adaptability of WAN. They must be able to service applications that are now living in private and public cloud data centers.

    • Mobility: The adoption of mobile devices — iPhones, Androids, and tablets — as well as high-end customer experience applications are driving the need to service customers in different ways. You need to deliver more in the way of Internet-facing services and secure services for mobility.

    • SaaS Applications: Many organizations are adopting solutions like Office 365 or Salesforce.com, which use the network in much different ways than solutions of the past.

    What does this mean?
