Just like a leaf distributes nutrients through veins, our network optimizes your connection to the cloud by monitoring each of your Internet connections and automatically rerouting application traffic based on changing conditions. We tunnel your traffic between our gateway clusters in the cloud and our plug-and-play router at your location, giving us visibility and control to maximize the uptime and performance of your Internet experience.
How SD-WAN Works
A Software-defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) is a virtual architecture that allows your business to securely connect to cloud-based applications and the Internet.
Instead of housing your network within industrial servers in your company’s basement, an SD-WAN enables you to connect multiple office locations and manage your entire network remotely.
What’s the Difference Between SD-WAN vs. SDN?
SD-WAN and SDN have a fair amount in common. Both make networking more intelligent by separating the control plane from the data plane and both operate using centralized management.
Some of the key differences between the two include:
Application. SDN is primarily used in data centers whereas SD-WDN operates best in offices.
History. SDN has been around the block, while SD-WDN is a recent technology innovation.
Use. SDN is usually limited to commodity and specialized switching hardware. SD-WDN, on the other hand, excels at off-the-shelf and cloud applications.
