What is SD-WAN?
Software-defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN) is a next-generation networking approach that is considered a game-changer for distributed enterprise networks in terms of both cost and flexibility.
SD-WAN leverages widely available internet connections and works equally well when integrated with an existing MPLS network or as its replacement. SD-WAN allows your organization to use the public Internet or your private WAN, or both, to manage your network traffic.
Compared to a traditional WAN deployment, SD-WAN enables businesses to deploy their WANs 100 times faster with three times the cost-savings.
Let’s talk about how APX Net SD-WAN can help you.
how it works
How Does APX Net SD-WAN Work?
APX Net SD-WAN uses software to control network connectivity, management and services between campuses, offices, branch offices, data centers or cloud instances. An SD-WAN appliance is placed at each business location and typically connected to our network gateway by up to four redundant public or private links. Traffic is sent dynamically over the best path to its destination – whether that’s a corporate data center, public cloud applications or the Internet
