Over the years, Peplink has developed a potent combination of products and technologies that can help you build SD-WAN networks with unbreakable connection resilience, unmatched deployment flexibility, and intuitive ease of use.
What is SD-WAN?
Software-Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN) is a revolutionary way to approach the simplification of branch office networking and assure optimal application performance by using centrally controlled and managed WAN virtualization.
Unlike traditional WANs, SD-WAN delivers increased network agility and cost reduction. Software-Defined WAN has its roots in Software-Defined Networking (SDN), the underlying principle of which is to abstract the network hardware and transport characteristics from the applications that use the network.
SD-WAN is Intelligent
SD-WAN enabled networks are capable of monitoring WAN health and quality, then using these measurements to make intelligent decisions on application traffic flow. This arrangement has several key benefits:
- Real time services like VoIP and video can be sent via the lowest latency link.
- Intelligent failover and active/active configurations can be used to guarantee reliability even when a WAN link fails.
- WAN connectivity can be added as and when required to provide agility.
- Best of all, once configured, all traffic is managed automatically by the software defined rules set on the device – no human interaction is required.
