SD-WAN Essentials: A Guide For Getting Started
The software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) is a specific application of software-defined networking (SDN) technology applied to WAN connections, which are used to connect enterprise networks – including branch offices and data centers – over large geographic distances.
A WAN might be used, for example, to connect branch offices to a central corporate network, or to connect data centers separated by distance. In the past, these WAN connections often used technology that required special proprietary hardware. The SD-WAN movement seeks to move more of the network control into the “cloud,” using a software approach.
In this guide, we brought together the top resources you need to get started understanding both the technology and the business impact of SD-WAN.
