Latest reply: Jan 30, 2022 13:38:01 1313 18 9 0 0

Introduction

A Software-defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) is the fundamental building block of WAN transformation and a virtual WAN architecture that allows enterprises to leverage any combination of transport services – including MPLS, LTE, and broadband internet services – to securely connect users to applications.

 

What is SD-WAN?

An SD-WAN uses a centralized control function to securely and intelligently direct traffic across the WAN. This increases application performance and delivers a high-quality user experience, resulting in increased business productivity, agility, and reduced costs for Networks.

 

SDN

SD-WAN by Gartner

There are four characteristics of SD-WAN as per Gartner

 

  1. Must support multiple connection types

    1. MPLS, Internet, LTE

  2. Can do dynamic path selection

    1. Allows for load sharing across WAN connections

  3. Provides a simple interface for managing WAN

    1. Must support zero-touch provisioning at a branch, should be as easy to set up as a home Wi-Fi

  4. Must support VPNs

    1. As well as other third-party services, such as WAN optimization controllers, firewalls, web gateways,  etc.

 

SDWANaaS

     SD-WAN as a Service refers to software-defined wide area network connectivity delivered to customers as a managed service using software orchestration.

 

It combined with security offers a new and vital revenue opportunity for managed service providers (MSPs) and telco Operators. They allow enterprise network operations teams to gain both OPEX efficiencies and a WAN infrastructure that can be co-managed or externally managed solution that meets the growing enterprise network demands, driven by digital transformation.

 

As the business expands, SD-WAN with security can lead to full Network-as-a-Service offerings. However, the journey of organizations can be complex; from workforce upskilling and understanding network topology designs to selecting the appropriate SD-WAN provider.

SD-WAN as a Service: Key takeaways

     SD-WAN as a service solves a critical concern of organization, those cannot/ don’t want to operate their own SD-WAN.

     A managed SD-WAN is where a service provider adds-on value to the network with its own additional features.

     A benefit of using a provider’s SD-WAN as a service is an organization can focus on business goals rather than managing an SD-WAN.

  

CONCLUSION

    According to a survey a few years back, the market value of SDWAN was around $680million, and it is predicted to reach $1.5 billion in 2022.

 

So SDWAN as-a-service is a great business opportunity and revenue engine as they can manage WAN services for enterprise organizations
