Gartner’s Technology insight for SD-WAN

SD-WAN is a mainstream technology that offers several benefits compared to traditional, router-based WANs. I&O leaders responsible for planning, sourcing and managing WANs can reduce costs and improve agility and uptime by using SD-WAN products.

In this report Gartner offers Key Findings and Recommendations for Enterprises.

Key Findings from this Report:

  • The emergence of public cloud computing and SaaS has rendered traditional enterprise WAN architectures suboptimal, from a price and performance perspective.

  • Software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) is a mainstream product category that provides branch-office connectivity in a simplified and cost-effective manner, compared to traditional routers.

  • SD-WAN adoption is growing rapidly. Further, many network service providers (NSPs) and many non-NSPs now offer managed SD-WAN services. More than 40 vendors are now offering and/or claiming to have SD-WAN solutions and products, causing ongoing confusion in the market.
