How Cloud-Based SD-Branch Technology Will Help Multi-Site Enterprises Streamline Networking & Reduce Costs

The popularity of legacy WAN (wide area network) systems are waning. Businesses are increasing traffic over connections, causing bandwidth issues. The amount of data transferred over WAN requires a large, expensive pipeline. WAN can be costly because of the robust equipment requirements at each remote location. Furthermore, networking personnel must be onsite for complex, time-consuming, installation and maintenance. As technology advances, WAN legacy systems are becoming outdated, and add-ons aren’t always as successful as we wish they were.

These factors are particularly challenging in an era when companies have a growing need for rapid deployments. Enter software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN), a cloud-based technology that has been a boon for businesses with multiple sites or locations.
