SD-WAN technology is growing at 70 percent a year and will be worth over $8 billion by 2021.
SD-WAN isn’t just another buzzword, and it’s expanding quickly.
If you want to take advantage of this solution, it is essential to understand the benefits and expected trends of SD-WAN in 2020.
SD-WAN makes your business more agile by shifting the responsibility of traffic management from hardware to software, making it easier to manage multiple connection types, improve end-user experience and application performance.
