Create a Modern IT Infrastructure
Networks run the applications that drive your business. Traditional network infrastructures cannot effectively enable cloud and digital initiatives as these present new demands on ITs. In order to support the digital business, your network infrastructure must be migrated to a Software-Defined architecture that is capable of fully supporting automation, programmability, cloud connectivity, and end-to-end security.
Software-Defined Networking (SDN)
SDN, commonly referenced in data center networking only, encompasses all Software-Defined technologies for the entire network infrastructure – including SD-WAN and SD-LAN. SDN enables a giant leap in how networks are managed by moving away from manual, command-line, device-by-device configuration to a centralized graphical interface that provides accuracy, speed, and simplicity. SDN ensures the network is able to meet the needs of virtualized, hybrid, and cloud environments.
Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN)
SD-WAN is a critical aspect of a modern WAN architecture and addresses the limitations and complexities of the traditional WAN. In addition to enabling cloud and mobility at the branch office, SD-WAN addresses performance, telecom costs, and agility issues prevalent with legacy architectures. Additionally, SD-WAN simplifies quality of service (QoS) and path selection (routing) – two areas historically difficult to deploy and troubleshoot.
