SD-WAN technology offers rich benefits—you’ve heard about them already—one of the most compelling is to leverage Internet broadband economics to provide affordable branch office bandwidth. But I run voice and video traffic over my WAN, and voice quality and Internet quality are famously at odds. So how do I know that my SD-WAN compensates for this? And if there should be a problem, how do I know where it is? These are exasperating questions and many of us have extensive experience—sometimes far more than we care to discuss—in troubleshooting incidents of poor voice…
