What is SD-WAN?

Software-Defined (SD) Wide-Area Networking (WAN) is an application of Software Defined Networking (SDN) technology that is applied to a WAN connection. This allows organizations to have higher-performance WANs while using cheaper and more accessible internet access.

More organizations are transitioning over to cloud services but still have on-premise resources. Switching to SD-WAN allows organizations consolidate their network visibility and management of the cloud and on-premise usage. This makes sense for organizations, as it ensures a seamless connectivity experience for both employees and customers alike.

With Utility Telecom’s SD WAN solutions for business, your organization can upgrade from costly multi-protocol label switching (MPLS) networking hardware and move to the security of cloud networking with SD-WAN technology. This simplifies operations with the use of centralized provisioning, management, policy control, and application visibility. With SD-WAN, your business has the benefit of multiple layers of security to protect against Internet and branch cyber threats.
