The value of the software-defined branch

The branch network is a critical component of your digital transformation journey. Use of popular cloud-based applications, increased mobility, new IoT devices, and rich applications requiring more bandwidth continues to stress branch WAN networks. 

Software-defined networking (SDN) technology is ready to revolutionize the way branch networks are built and operated. Enter: SD-Branch.

In this Doyle Research paper, learn about the benefits of SD-Branch, including:

  • Reducing management challenges, complexity
  • Reducing network expenditures
  • Increasing automation
  • And more

  • Why organizations are ditching MPLS for SD-WAN

    Organizations with a lot of branches spend a significant amount of time and money supporting them.

    Before SD-WAN, MPLS was the only serious connectivity choice for branch locations. Now SD-WAN vendors offer both broadband and 4G LTE as secure and reliable alternatives (or complements) to MPLS at a fraction of the cost.

    Learn about how SD-WAN can help imrpove the branch experience in this white paper.
