SD-WAN: SD-WAN simplifies the management and operation of a WAN by decoupling the networking hardware from it’s control mechanism.  Businesses can take control of their network by reducting complexity and costs and improving application performance.  SD-WAN Provides companies increased network visibility, centralized management, application-level insights, and the ability to optimize traffic routing.  Additionally, SD-WAN allows branch locations to leverage bandwidth-intensive applications that were previously only available to larger offices, while multiple layers of security protect again internet and branch cyber threats.
