Cloud providers have accelerated time to market, improved cost efficiencies, and leveraged economies of scale using virtually unlimited capacity. These benefits, and many others, have caused a massive migration of corporate data center applications to the cloud.
This migration has put undue stress on legacy networks, that were not built for cloud connectivity. In fact, today’s connectivity to cloud applications is more than about direct cloud access. In our fast-paced digital world, simplicity, bandwidth costs, agility, security, and on-demand scalability are just as important.
The cloud migration has brought unprecedented demand for low-cost broadband Internet and 4G/LTE networks, empowered by Software-Defined networking (SD-WAN). SD-WAN simplifies the aggregation of multiple, diverse network links, and automatically prioritizes traffic between circuits and paths to ensure reliable connectivity.
