SD-WAN – The Future Of Networks
Software-defined (SD) networks offer a viable means of solving thorny issues. SD-WANs follow these basic tenets:
Software Defined Everything: A foundation for future enterprise networking
The future of enterprise networking is software-defined. Never before could so many networking and security services be deployed in such a short time. Software is the only way to make the complexity of cloud connectivity, internet data transfer security, and deep network analysis manageable. Interdependencies occur between networking and security services, particularly when it comes to achieving efficient operation.
The enterprise networks of tomorrow will use an architecture born of the interplay between SD-WAN transport networks, security requirements, and the required processes within IT service management. As SD-WAN continues to mature, any performance gaps between the technologies will continue to shrink. The focus of IT decision-makers will increasingly shift towards the general ability to control and manage the network across all ITIL processes.
SD-WAN is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to managing future enterprise networks. For a quantum leap in productivity and automation, an SD-WAN needs to interact with a number of additional systems such as order processing, fault clearance, and the campus LAN. When these systems can’t work in concert, business processes get held up by manual workflows.
