Build a Transport Agnostic and Application Defined WAN for the Digital Age

In today’s digital world, where applications offered on-demand via the internet and cloud, there is an urgent need for enterprises to operate at ‘cloud speed’ to stay competitive. As we move ahead in this dynamic market, digital enterprise, IoT and machine learning are the disruptive forces that led us to reconsider the fundamental platform of an enterprise – Wide Area Networks. Whether it is unceasing customer delight through perpetual customer experience management or high employee engagement and enablement, CXOs want to focus on business innovations rather than police networks. Software-Defined Wide Area Networks (SD-WAN) offers an intelligent and instinctive approach to design, deploy and manage the distributed networks of the modern enterprises. It delivers centralized, policy-driven management and seamless linking of hybrid WAN across locations. With SD-WAN, enterprises can break away from legacy architecture to utilize WAN more effectively and economically while ensuring high throughput, performance, availability, and security.

Join HCL and Silverpeak to gain more insights into SD-WAN technology and learn how the implementation of SD-WAN solutions enable distributed enterprises to build a transport agnostic WAN, securely connecting users to applications without compromising application performance.
