Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN) is an overlay architecture that overcomes the biggest drawbacks of traditional WAN. SD-WAN builds a secure, unified connectivity over any transport (MPLS, Broadband, LTE, VSAT etc.) and provides simplified operations with centralized management, policy control and application visibility across the enterprise.
Viptela provides Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) Technology that allows global companies to build carrier agnostic, policy-controlled and cost-effective WANs. Viptela has been deployed at thousands of sites by Fortune 500 enterprises; and major carriers, including VERIZON and SINGTEL, who are using Viptela to deliver managed SD-WAN Serivces.
Viptela cuts existing operating costs in the WAN by more than 50%, increases bandwidth 10X, and, significantly improves security and uptime.
Gartner estimates that by the end of 2019, 30% of enterprises will use SD-WAN technology in all their branches, up from less than 1% today. This is because SD-WAN is a transformational approach to simplifying branch office networking and optimizing performance. However, security is a critical factor for SD-WAN adoption, especially for cloud and Internet applications.
