What is SD WAN all about? Below outlines my journey to find out.
Central control of traffic from end to end, regardless of actual network (MPLS, 4G, DLS)
GUI driven vManager
Devices needed – vEdges, vSmarts, vManagers.
In a nutshell, SD-WAN is all about getting different types of traffic over from one place to another with separate priorities.
They can also be used in HA mode for larger sites. But then you have circuits in standby mode which are not being used…. defeats the object as circuits are expensive. So basically resiliency at the cost of efficiency. Live flows can be seen at the click of a few buttons.
I prefer Cisco vManager, vSmart, vEdge as there is so much information about available, it really is leading the way forward.
