SD-WAN to SD-Branch: The Evolution at the Edge of the Enterprise Network
This IDC Market Perspective addresses the evolution and benefits of the SD-Branch market.
"The modern cloud era has caused a significant re-architecture at the edge of the enterprise network. Whereas WAN connectivity between the branch and datacenter used to suffice, today enterprises are looking to solve a full range of network, security, and management pain points at the network edge," says Brandon Butler, senior research analyst, Enterprise Networks, IDC. "SD-Branch is an opportunity to rethink enterprise network architecture and design; embrace virtualized, containerized, or cloud-hosted functions; enable flexibility and agility; and simplify management."
