Traditional methods of building wide area networks (WANs) have always had limitations, but fell even further behind with the adoption of the cloud and remote work. Software-defined WANs (SD-WANs) have simplified many aspects of WAN management, but are unable to fully break away from the hub-and-spoke model due to security requirements. Modern WAN-as-a-Service offerings address these shortcomings while providing organizations cost savings and improving network performance.

Read the white paper to learn:

  • The benefits and challenges of legacy WAN architectures and SD-WANs
  • Key features to look for in WAN-as-a-Service offerings
  • The advantages that WAN-as-a-Service provides over legacy architectures
