SD-WAN (Software-Defined WAN) is a Wide Area Network (WAN) deployment method using virtualization and application to control and establish WAN and devices across branch offices.
Gartner predicts by the year-end of 2018, 10% of enterprises will have replaced their WAN routing with SD-WAN based path forwarding, up from less than 1% today. Many service providers are making significant strides to advance this emerging WAN solution and experts predict exponential market growth this year. Already hot on IT decision makers’ radar, now is an ideal time to get in the game and begin strategic conversations. As businesses look to replace hardware, more and more will look to this emerging WAN technology.
MPLS, or Multiprotocol Label Switching, is a multi-layer Internet protocol that is run through the cloud. It creates a direct tunnel between various customer business locations through cloud-based servers, which allows for the creation of a virtual network. MPLS creates a one-to-many connection which allows for signals to be directly transmitted between multiple locations, all while being able to control the priority of packets being sent. MPLS provides substantial advantages in flexibility, scalability, and operations cost in comparison to legacy technologies.
