Software-defined networking in a wide area network (SD-WAN) is widely known for the benefits it brings of connecting globally dispersed offices via centralized management, reducing networking costs by providing an alternative to MPLS and for its ability to boost the performance of existing network infrastructure. WAN optimization is the core component of SD-WAN that ensures a fast performant network in each office location.

 

In this whitepaper, we take a deep dive into how WAN optimization helps networks perform better and ensure business critical applications have the best possible internet connection when it's needed.
