Unveiling the Power of SD-WAN's Features and Functions
In today's digital age, businesses are constantly looking for ways to improve their network infrastructure and provide a better user experience for their employees and customers. One of the emerging technologies that is gaining popularity is Software-Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN). Here we will discuss the features and functions of SD-WAN.
- Centralised Management: One of the key features of SD-WAN is centralised management. This means that the network can be controlled and managed from a single console, providing a holistic view of the network infrastructure. The centralised management system allows for easy configuration, monitoring, and troubleshooting of the network.
- Dynamic Path Selection: SD-WAN uses dynamic path selection to intelligently route traffic across the network. This ensures that traffic is sent over the most optimal path based on real-time network conditions. Dynamic path selection can improve application performance and reduce latency, providing a better user experience.
- Quality of Service (QoS): SD-WAN provides Quality of Service (QoS) capabilities, which allow for the prioritisation of critical traffic. This ensures that important applications and services receive the necessary bandwidth and priority to function properly. QoS can also help to prevent network congestion and improve network performance.
- WAN Optimisation: SD-WAN can optimise WAN performance through techniques such as data compression, caching, and deduplication. WAN optimisation can reduce bandwidth usage and improve application performance, resulting in a better user experience.
- Application Awareness: SD-WAN can be application-aware, which means that it can identify and prioritise applications based on their specific requirements. This feature ensures that critical applications receive the necessary bandwidth and priority, while non-critical applications are given lower priority.
- Security: SD-WAN provides security features such as encryption and firewall capabilities to protect data as it travels across the network. These security features can help to prevent unauthorised access, data breaches, and other security threats.
- Hybrid Network Connectivity: SD-WAN allows for hybrid network connectivity, which means that it can use both public and private network connections to create a more flexible and cost-effective network infrastructure. This feature provides organisations with the flexibility to choose the best network connection for their needs.
