Onsite, in the cloud, or wherever your apps may reside, you need to improve operations by lowering costs, reducing risks, or enhancing customer experience. These solutions help you to gain better visibility into application and network performance and the end user experience. They combine network, application and end user performance metrics for deep visibility - IT can troubleshoot and fix problems before the user is impacted. You can leverage our application-aware approach, on intent-based, business-driven, global policies with local enforcement. You also have significantly improved control to enable business agility.
A Software-defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) is a virtual WAN architecture that provides enterprises with the flexibility to leverage any combination of transport services, including broadband internet, to securely connect users to applications. Today, applications are hosted in on-premise data centers, and increasingly in private or public clouds. Or they may be consumed as a subscription-based Software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering. Typical SaaS examples include Salesforce.com, Workday, Office365, Box and Dropbox.

Begin by Augmenting MPLS with Broadband
As more applications move to the cloud, companies are finding MPLS is no longer sufficient to address today’s WAN requirements. There is a desire to operate at "cloud speed," but many IT organizations may be reluctant to transition to a broadband WAN (often referred to as an SD-WAN) overnight. While the ultimate goal may be a software-defined WAN, enterprises can begin their journey with a hybrid WAN. As MPLS upgrades arise, businesses can explore lower-cost broadband Internet services as an alternative for connecting to Cloud applications. This provides an opportunity to downsize MPLS bandwidth and only use that connectivity for remaining data center applications. Enterprises can begin to slowly migrate additional applications from the data center to the cloud as desired.
