  • The Mandate to Adopt a Software Defined Branch Office

    The primary reason for the popularity of the traditional branch office WAN architecture is that until recently there hadn’t been a fundamentally new WAN technology or architecture introduced into the marketplace since the introduction of MPLS almost twenty years ago. That situation began to change a couple of years ago with the introduction of a new class of WAN solutions that takes a software-centric approach to providing WAN products and services. This new class of solutions is typically referred to as a Software Defined WAN (SD-WAN). The large and growing interest in SD-WANs was discussed in a report by Transparency Market Research. According to that report, the global SD-WAN market will expand at a 51.4% CAGR between 2017 and 2025. Rising at this rate, the market will likely become worth US$34.35 billion by 2025.
