Top 10 SD-WAN Solution Companies - 2020

A Software-defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) is a virtual WAN architecture that allows enterprises to leverage any combination of transport services to securely connect users to applications—by leveraging a centralized control function to securely and intelligently direct traffic across the WAN. This increases application performance, resulting in enhanced user experience, increased business productivity, and reduced costs for IT. The traditional router-centric model that backhauls traffic from the branch to headquarters to the internet and back again no longer makes sense. Backhaul adds delay that impairs application performance resulting in poor user experience and lost productivity. Employees often report that their business apps run faster at home or on their mobile devices than at the office. For this reason, SD-WAN is rapidly adopted in production by companies of all sizes and in all industry verticals because it delivers an easily attainable, tangible ROI.

As numerous enterprise-customers migrate applications to the cloud, Service Providers are experiencing a need to modernize WAN offerings to meet customer demand for bandwidth and connecting customers to the cloud with confidence. Service Providers will learn how to offer SD-WAN as a service to increase profitability, deliver differentiated services, and increase flexibility. To help organizations and leaders select the best SD-WAN vendors, Enterprise Networking Magazine’s editorial board has assessed and shortlisted SD-WAN Solution Providers that are at the forefront of providing cutting-edge technology offering robust products coupled with innovative strategies that are distinctively prominent in the field. We present to you “Top 10 SD-WAN Solution Companies - 2020”
