In January of this year LookingPoint Senior Solutions Architect, Chris Marshall, wrote a blog highlighting a technology we had just started hearing more about, SD-WAN. To recap, SD-WAN is an acronym for Software Defined Wide Area Network, and is a specific application of Software Defined Networking (SDN) that simplifies WAN management and connects enterprise networks. SD-WAN provides aggregation of WAN bandwidth, centralized control and policy enforcement, and visibility into network traffic.
By this time, I’m sure you’ve all heard about the whole SD-WAN, or Software Defined Wide Area Network, craze hitting the industry. Heck, if you are reading this now, it probably means you are in the process of researching, piloting, or operating one yourself. This is great news! However, if you are looking for a high-level, marketing overview of the four pillars of an SD-WAN, then you are probably in the wrong place! In this article, I’m going to pass on some information from my personal experiences with one SD-WAN solution, Cisco IWAN.
