With the mass adoption of cloud applications, services, and resources, routers and their architectures can't adequately address enterprise deployments.. Software-defined wide area networking, virtual CPE, virtual network functions, and pervasive cloud services are creating the most reliable, effective, and secure enterprise branch offices.
Traffic fails over or is moved to an alternative path, but lacks sub-second proactive steering to avoid loss of connections, flows, calls and sessions.
Branch routers are difficult to install, upgrade, and maintain, requiring highly trained and skilled technicians to service them. Retaining talent to make adjustments per site is both costly and difficult to manage.
CapEx-centric hardware, site-by-site management, and MPLS dependence add up the costs. Expanding the network to new sites or adding new services is a lengthy and time-consuming process.
QoS measurement is reported by transport channel and by method of communication, but cannot actively regulate traffic before congestion becomes an issue.
Selecting the most appropriate path based on link health and business policies is dynamic using VMware Dynamic Multi-Path Optimization.
The intelligence of SD-WAN and an ecosystem of cloud security providers protect your data, your business, and your network. Securely scale to tens of thousands of branches and cloud services without costly "truck rolls."
Eliminate high-cost hardware and capital expenses by shifting to a SaaS model that allows you to re-invest IT budget in revenue-generating activities.
Enable new services or update network policies regionally or worldwide with a simple click (no CLI) in the SD-WAN Orchestrator and propagate changes throughout the entire network immediately. Eliminate the need to configure or manage each individually.
