Today’s WAN Challenges

• Multi-protocol label switching (MPLS)


was never designed with SaaS and
cloud apps in mind
• With more applications moving to the
cloud, WAN reliability becomes key to
business continuity
• Bandwidth demands within the
enterprise are increasing at 15% per
year
• Businesses are transforming faster

• Complex & Costly to Manage than ever, and network agility is key to
• Increased Demand for Bandwidth keeping pace
• Harder to Secure and Poor Visibility
• Poor and unpredictable Performance

Drivers for a More Efficient WAN

– Internet of Things (IoT) will soon outstrip human users,


requiring secure, simple connectivity
– Increasing complexity to manage and support the
(hybrid) WAN and Cloud in multiple locations
(e.g., 25+ locations)
– Exploding real-time, bandwidth intensive applications,
increasing stress on network performance, increasing
security needs
– Increasing cost of existing remote location/branch
equipment, especially during a refresh cycle
– Increasing provisioning times and the need for
enhanced branch availability/uptime
– Limited or no IT personnel on-site in remote locations
– Need to reduce overall IT budgets across the WAN

Traditional WAN vs SDWAN

An enterprise network created,


defined, and controlled by a central
software platform that remotely
configures and monitors physical and
virtual customer premises equipment
(CPE) connected by a mix of network
technologies including
Internet/Broadband, Wireless LTE,
Ethernet Local Access, and MPLS.
