The only SD-WAN evaluation checklist you’ll ever need

SD-WAN is one of the hottest trends for forward-thinking enterprises, offering tangible benefits over old-school router-based WANs in terms of cost, performance and availability (not to mention ROI).

The bad news is that implementation can potentially be a major headache for network engineers and IT managers – at least if they’re unprepared.

1. Think of your business needs

Like many emerging technologies, SD-WAN is not a one-size-fits-all solution with standardized functionalities that work with all hardware. Numerous vendors and service providers offer SD-WAN solutions today, but not all will suit your specific business needs. Maybe you need a solution that performs well over consumer broadband connections, lights up new branches quickly, or works with your existing infrastructure. Either way, you have to shop carefully.

2. Consider implementation options

Once your business needs are sorted, you have to think about how you're actually going to implement and run your SD-WAN. There are several different options, and each comes with its own trade-offs. Should you do it all yourself, work with a third-party integrator, or go with a fully managed option?

3. Walk through the blueprint

This webinar will give you the preparation and the confidence you need to implement SD-WAN successfully. Our expert speakers will walk you through the process of SD-WAN implementation, from design and assessment to ongoing operations once it’s up and running. Sign up now to learn the challenges, potential pitfalls, and pro tips of selecting and implementing the right SD-WAN solution that fits your current and future needs.

An SD-WAN solution should be capable of:

Delivering SLAs for enterprise apps over consumer broadband

Steering SaaS and web-based apps directly over the Internet granularly and intelligently

Bringing new branches online in hours

Deploying an SD-WAN over existing infrastructure

Enhancing WAN and application security
