[Infographic] Will your WAN enable your business transformation?

May 2, 2017

Will your network enable your business transformation?

Enterprise WANs are under more pressure than ever before

Cloud-based applications, mobile and virtualized workforces have created stress on enterprises that operate large private networks. Today’s enterprise needs dynamic, low cost, reliable and secure links to the cloud. Which means traditional MPLS-based connectivity between locations, data centers and cloud providers no longer meets customer expectations.

64% of U.S.-based companies are in stages of planning or expanding implementation from a traditional WAN to SDWAN in the next 12 months.¹

More companies are turning to SDWAN to support their needs

SDWAN is an overlay technology independent of the physical network that provides the consistent, cloud-based application performance your customers and end-users demand. Management of all business and security policies is centralized into a single interface.
