Business continuity is critical in today’s always-on 24x7 world. Branch offices, remote employees, and work sites are spread across the globe, and they need ubiquitous connectivity to the apps and data that keep operations running. This is especially true for organizations undergoing digital transformation and have a heavy reliance on data.
Modern businesses need a robust and flexible network architecture that enables uptime and business continuity cost-efficiently. Redundancy can provide reliability, but deploying standby circuits on traditional MPLS infrastructure - just in case the network goes down - can be expensive for any sized organization. And cost prohibitive when a company manages hundreds of globally-distributed business locations.
Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) is key to unlocking an agile and cost-effective network while giving organizations a clear path to digital transformation. It’s also key to redundancy, providing agile organizations with a highly-intelligent network traffic management solution that provides highly-secure access to mission-critical business applications. No matter the day, time, existing traffic load, or planned or unplanned outages, SD-WAN doesn’t just find a path—it finds the optimal path.
