Learn to love your WAN
According to industry analyst Gartner, most enterprises hate their WAN (Wide Area Network). They're expensive to run and suffer from long lead times to set up and modify. SD-WAN (Software Defined WAN) changes the game, enabling business customers to cope with the explosion in bandwidth demand by combining dedicated data connections with less expensive broadband links in their wide area network.
