AireSpring’s SD-WAN

Traditional WAN uses MPLS connections that serve as the main path based on the level of security and reliability provided. Broadband is used only for backup or low priority applications because of poor reliability.

Software-defined WAN or SD-WAN used MPLS and Internet/Broadband connections are used actively for all applications. It uses an edge device to measure link performance and sends it to Director, and the Director then determines routing policies, which are then sent to edge devices for implementation. SD-WAN consolidates branch appliances and provides centralized network management and visibility.

 

5 SD-WAN Business Drivers:

  1. Connecting sites, colos, Clouds, & more quickly, affordably, securely with full visibility
  2. Standardization of technology & level of service to all sites at varying sizes w/QoE/QoS
  3. Reduce IT complexity & costs
  4. Achieve maximum availability
  5. Expand globally into new markets
