For distributed enterprises, it is no longer a question of if you will be implementing Software-Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN) but when.
According to Gartner’s 2018 Strategic Roadmap for Networking Report, by 2021 more than 65% of WAN refresh initiatives will be based on SD-WAN.
Chances are, between now and 2021, your network will be due for a refresh.
And SD-WAN is not just the inevitable, but the intelligent choice for distributed enterprises.
With SD-WAN you get operational benefits like simplified updates and less repetitive activities. But more importantly, your enterprise will get:
- Consistent application performance across the enterprise
- Uniform user experience regardless of transport type
- End of blackouts and brownouts on the network
With an SD-WAN solution you have options. You can update network appliances and services at a pace that is consistent with your needs, budget and business requirements, or you can rip and replace to do it all at once.
With Managed SD-WAN, there’s a better way.
The value of an experienced Managed SD-WAN provider like Hughes is that we can help you plan and prepare to avoid errors or mistakes, whether the installation is gradual or immediate.
