In the business world today, there is rising demand for mobility services, simplified network architecture, cloud-based technology, and reduction in CAPEX and OPEX while maintaining Quality of Service (QoS).  Traditional networks fail to fulfill all the current business demands in comparison to Software-Defined Wide-Area Networking (SD-WAN); the SD-WAN technology offers the functionality to cater the current demand of reduced CAPEX and OPEX with other factors such as better security, automatic pathway control, and improved business agility and responsiveness.

MarketsandMarkets defines “SD-WAN” as a transformational application installed centrally in existing WAN connections, used by enterprises to simplify their branch networking performance over large regions. It is deployed in enterprise WAN, which uses Software-Defined Network (SDN) to route data traffic to remote locations, thereby reducing data congestion. SD-WAN establishes a logical connection between WAN edge devices placed in different branch offices and creates a secure path across multiple WAN connections and carriers, such as hybrid internet and Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) architectures.

The increasing demand for better networking technology offering reduced OPEX and CAPEX, while maintaining the QoS across industry verticals has fueled the growth of SD-WAN solutions within the organizations. SD-WAN has become an indispensable practice for enterprises, to sustain in the competitive environment.

The report on Vendor Comparison in SD-WAN based on MnM DIVE Methodology analyzes and evaluates the key vendors in the SD-WAN market.

Software-Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN) is a transformational application installed centrally in existing WAN connections, used by enterprises to simplify their branch networking performance over large regions. It is deployed in enterprise WAN, which uses Software-Defined Network (SDN) to route data traffic to remote locations, thereby reducing data congestion. SD-WAN establishes a logical connection between WAN edge devices placed in different branch offices and creates a secure path across multiple WAN connections and carriers, such as hybrid internet and Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) architectures.

SD-WAN offers companies new alternatives for diminishing the WAN cost and enhancing the overall performance by reducing the CAPEX and OPEX. SD-WAN solutions offer businesses better security and improved agility and responsiveness. The major growth drivers of the SD-WAN market include rising demand for mobility services, reduced OPEX, increasing need among the customers for simplified network architecture, and cloud-based technology usage with improved Quality of Service (QoS). The SD-WAN market faces challenges such as lack of security and bandwidth provisioning, which limit the market growth.

The report on vendor comparison in SD-WAN based on MarketsandMarkets DIVE methodology reviews major players that offer SD-WAN solutions and outlines the findings and analysis on the basis of two broad categories: Product Offerings and Business Strategies. Each category carries various criteria, based on which the vendors are evaluated. The criteria are provided below:

Vendor Comparison SD-WAN

Based on an extensive secondary and primary research, key information about the vendor’s product offering and business strategies was gathered. After the completion of data gathering and verification process, the scores and weightage for shortlisted vendors against each parameter were finalized. After evaluating all the vendors, a comparison scorecard was prepared and each vendor was placed in the MnM DIVE matrix based on their product offering and business strategy scores.

This report is instrumental in helping the stakeholders, such as SD-WAN vendors, system integrators, consultants, value-added resellers, and technology partners, to make business decisions on SD-WAN solution deployments.

The report covers the comprehensive study of key SD-WAN vendors, including Cisco Systems, Inc., Citrix Systems, Inc., Aryaka Networks, Inc., CloudGenix, Inc., Ecessa Corporation, Silver Peak, Inc., VeloCloud Networks, Inc., Viptela, Riverbed Technology, Talari Networks, Brain4Net, Inc., CenturyLink, Inc., Elfiq Networks, FatPipe Networks Inc., Glue Networks, Nuage Networks, Peplink, Teldat, TELoIP Inc., Cato Networks, Windstream Communications, InfoVista, Cradlepoint, Inc., Versa Networks, and Mushroom Networks Inc.
