SD-WAN stands for Software-Defined Wide Area Networks. SD-WAN links all your branch offices with software built in an Internet router/modem. The SD-WAN solution removes dependency on your Internet Service Providers (ISPs). You can choose your own ISPs at each branch office and the SD-WAN software can automatically link them all up.
How does it work?
A typical organisation that needs SD-WAN is an organisation with multiple branches who require the ability to link all branches to their head office in order to ensure file accessibility. SD-WAN securely connects multiple offices via public Internet. Each branch office can be connected to a different type of Internet connection – e.g NBN, Fibre, 4G, wireless Ethernet, or satellite. Connectivity between all offices is controlled by software in a router/modem installed in each office.
