SD WAN

December 19th, 2019

What began as a rudimentary technology has morphed into a robust platform featuring dynamic architectures and expanded functionality, including advanced routing and security capabilities. With this software defined expansion has come inherent challenges. Many companies that take a Do-It-Yourself approach to planning, designing, implementing and overseeing all of the components of their SD WAN solution quickly realise that these tasks can be more of a challenge than they initially anticipated which generates a requirement for managed service elements. This is especially true when migrating from traditional WAN edge MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching) where managed services are used frequently. Agility across the WAN remains at the forefront of software-defined WAN benefits regardless of whether managed network services are procured vs DIY.

Cisco are of course a recognised entity in the networking and security sector, due to huge market share, which means there’s a level of trust and confidence associated with the brand. On the flip side, VeloCloud was acquired by VMWare back in December 2017 joining an existing capability with significant experience across virtualisation and cloud services technology. Cisco and VMWare are both viewed as software defined market leaders with Cisco owning the hybrid networking space due to a huge amount of experience across decades. Which software-based networking solution is best suited to your business requirements, Viptela or VeloCloud?
