Key components of a software-defined branch

The Mandate to Adopt a Software-Defined Branch Office

Cover

The SD-WAN market will reach $34.35 billion by 2025, according to a report by Transparency Market Research. SD-WAN promises to greatly simplify the operations of the branch office WAN. But there are 2 challenges:

  1. Managing traffic that is dynamically load balanced over disparate WAN services is more complex than managing WAN traffic that traverses a single WAN link or WAN trunk group
  2. Organizations won’t be able to add Internet links at branch offices, and hence cut the cost of their WAN, unless they can solve the operational challenge of how to easily manage and secure these links

In this Ashton, Metzler & Associates research paper, learn how software-defined branch solutions differ from typical SD-WAN options, and what’s driving their adoption.
