Software-defined WANs have four important characteristics, each of which can impact your bottom line:
- They must support multiple connection types. This gives you both freedom of choice and the ability to spin up fully functional remote offices in the remotest of locations.
- They make dynamic path selection possible. This allows for load sharing across WAN connection points, a potentially huge source of savings.
- They provide a simple interface for WAN management. By extension, it allows for near zero-touch provisioning at small branches, so that even non-techies can handle setting up remote branches.
- They support a range of third-party services. So your existing investments in VPNs, WAN optimization controllers, firewalls, etc. continue to deliver value.
Comcast Business SD-WAN adds a control layer on top of a customer's network infrastructure, enabling them to centralize management of critical network functions, reduce the need for costly equipment, reduce provisioning times and allow for better management of traffic across a network. It also brings together application-aware routing, secure VPN capabilities, and a stateful firewall in an integrated solution that is easy to operate and maintain.
As a result, companies with multiple branch offices now have a way to make broadband smart by unleashing the power of virtualized networks.
Gartner estimates that SD-WAN adoption will increase by 300% over the next two years.
