Evaluating SD-WAN Solutions


Analyst White Paper
by Dr. Jim Metzler

As is usually the case with an emerging market, the first entrants into the SD-WAN space were start-ups. However, given the ability of SD-WAN to support both traditional and emerging WAN use cases, the market has recently been flooded with a range of vendors, solutions and technologies offering varying types of SD-WAN solutions.

While having differing types of solutions provided by numerous suppliers is potentially beneficial, it also creates confusion that complicates the task of evaluating alternative SD-WAN solutions.

The goal of this white paper is to cut through the confusion in the market by identifying seven key questions that network organizations should ask themselves as part of evaluating SD-WAN solutions to ensure they are addressing the needs of their business today and identifying solutions which are future-proofed for both known and unforeseen needs over several years.
