Software-Defined WAN Market Report 2016 - Analysis, Technologies & Forecasts - Key Vendors: Cisco, Citrix, CloudGenix - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Software-Defined WAN: Simplifying Enterprise Hybrid WAN Deployments" report to their offering.

The industry has long debated which technology is superior for global enterprise Wide Area Networks (WANs): multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) or Internet-based virtual private networks (VPNs). While some argue that Internet-based VPNs are preferable because of their flexibility, scalability and cost benefits, others swear by MPLS for its reliability and performance (albeit expensive) characteristics.

The choice of MPLS versus Internet comes down to whether the CIO is comfortable with entrusting his/her company's applications to the Internet or prefers to keep them on a private network that does not touch the Internet. However, the growing penetration of cloud- based applications and mobility is forcing enterprises to re-evaluate their networking strategies.

Thanks to Software-defined WAN, or SD-WAN, CIOs can confidently consider hybrid WAN deployments that make the best of Internet (inexpensive and widely available) and MPLS (private and reliable) links. An SD-WAN utilizes intelligent, application-aware software to route traffic over the optimal network technology, based on business policies.

In this report, an in-depth analysis of the following is presented:

  • SD-WAN's value proposition
