SD-Branch 101

A most challenging aspect of branch network operations is the need to provision, manage and operate a complex array of distinct IT elements, or boxes, at the branch.

Since business agility requires many organizations to operate more branches or to rapidly provision branch connectivity in new locations, an increasing number of organizations are implementing SD-branch.

The SD-branch combines most branch networking technologies onto a single platform and offers improvements in terms of rapid deployment, integrated security, and centralized monitoring and management.

Access this expert buyer’s handbook to learn more about SD-WAN, and explore what you should know before implementing the technology in your branch locations.
