Cisco SD-WAN Powered by MerakiThe world’s most trusted SD-WAN provider
What is SD-WAN?
Software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN) is a software-based approach for businesses to utilize and manage more than one external network connection such as MPLS, broadband, and fiber optic at a given location based on its performance.
With SD-WAN, network admins can define which WAN link an application should use, or set up rules for which link should be used based on its performance.
