Day 2 of Cisco Live was filled with amazing new technology, new applications, new innovative services, and the power of Cisco’s partnerships. Cisco is continuing to build their intent-based networking with DNA, DNA Center now DNA Assurance. What really caught our attention today was the network and security innovations and integrations.

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.

In this article, I’m going to pass on some information from my personal experiences with one SD-WAN solution, Cisco IWAN.

The title to this blog is a question that I have been hearing a lot from customers in the last few months. With Gartner’s recent prediction that spending on SD-WAN will rise from $129 million in 2016 to $1.24 billion in 2020, I figured it’s about time I write up a little blog article all about this latest offering to revolutionize the enterprise WAN, or perhaps not!
