The technological revolution in business continues apace. A huge range of technologies have become integral to the way businesses operate, and this dependence on tech is growing all the time. Those firms that fail to keep up with the accelerating pace of technological change – and the changing expectations of their clients and customers – risk falling behind their competitors.
Recent years have seen software-defined wide-area network (SD-WAN) products make a real leap forward. The advantages of SD-WAN are already well documented. More cost-effective and flexible than legacy router-centric multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) WANs, SD-WAN offers superior responsiveness, enhanced application performance, more robust security, and improved visibility. All that facilitates greater reliability and consistency and enables organizations to advance their cloud and digital transformation initiatives.
