SD-WAN drives performance up and costs down

SD-WAN forecast

IDC forecasted the SD-WAN space to reach $6 billion in technology and service sales by 2020, with a compound annual growth rate of more than 90% over the next five years.


Running a corporate network with WAN technology once required exhaustive engineering intervention and yielded limited bandwidth capabilities. Today there is a growing industry trend to move more of the network control to a software approach leveraging ubiquitous network technologies.

The evolution of a Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) has changed the game with this new disruptive technology-replacing manual network optimization with intelligent application-level routing. This paradigm shift has exponentially lowered costs, and the benefits are vast. The software improves bandwidth utilization across any available network link, with the highest level of performance possible for critical applications, without sacrificing security or data privacy.

This technological advancement ultimately increases business productivity resulting in a higher ROI.

“Deploying an SD-WAN is the seamless, incremental and cost-conscious method for creating the agility needed by your business counterparts without sacrificing your existing network infrastructure investment.” – VeloCloud
