Many organisations are adopting SD-WAN as a flexible solution to manage multiple and disparate networks. Investment is showing no signs of slowing and IDC reported an 83.3% increase in SD-WAN infrastructure revenues in 2017, predicting that the market will reach $4.5bn by 2022.
Despite this growth, companies are still dubious about migrating from legacy networks and as with all business decisions, organisations need to determine and prove the switch will deliver strong financial and operational returns to justify the investment.
One of the main benefits of SD-WAN is raw cost – it costs less than traditional WANs and is often easier to deploy. Its other advantage is its ‘single pane of glass,’ which simplifies network management across the entire estate. However, no organisation can afford to be out of action due to technical or network errors, as such one crucial measure is quality of service.
