Many organisations are finding that outdated static WAN provision no longer supports the varied and dynamic demands of their organisation.

The range of options available has grown, but the challenge lies in deciding how to build a WAN that best meets ever more complex requirements. Software-defined networking in a wide area network (SD-WAN) allows organisations to achieve the best possible application performance and resilience across the entire network, simplifying operations and lowering overall costs.

SD-WAN removes the problem of fixed connectivity by building an overlay network in software that can dynamically respond to changing locations, loads and conditions. Policies for data security and application performance can be common across the entire network – including the WAN – and the SD-WAN overlay can provide a way of achieving this.

CDW works with you to understand your current and aspirational WAN capabilities and capacity, helping you to select the right solutions to deliver flexible, resilient and high-performance connectivity. We can also integrate SD-WAN into the wider network, improving operational efficiency and security by delivering end-to-end policy-driven management, control and monitoring. From self-managed networks to an end-to-end WAN service, CDW has the expertise and capability to meet your requirements.
