Defining True Flexibility for SD-WAN

September 29, 2020 | technology | No Comments

SD-WAN was initially designed as a more flexible and cost-effective solution for connecting branch offices to cloud resources and the core network. And that is still the primary way it is deployed. Replacing static and costly MPLS connections and edge routers with a system that can manage and optimize connections and application performance has helped millions of organizations deploy a more robust and adaptable WAN strategy.

The right SD-WAN solution can do so much more. But far too many vendors have failed to realize the true potential of SD-WAN, or have over-promised on the flexibility of their solutions. It is not uncommon to find SD-WAN solutions, even from major vendors, that are unable to scale beyond 100 sites, provide overly complex management systems, or don’t provide solutions appropriate to meet the unique needs of essential verticals, such as retail. This failure on the part of the vendors limits the possibilities

Thus, the term technology has been given various definitions by previous literatures. According to Kumar et. al (1999)

technology consists of two primary components: 1) a physical component which comprises of items such as products,

tooling, equipments, blueprints, techniques, and processes; and 2) the informational component which consists of

know-how in management, marketing, production, quality control, reliability, skilled labor and functional areas. The

earlier definition by Sahal (1981) views technology as ‘configuration’, observing that the transfer object (the

technology) relies on a subjectively determined but specifiable set of processes and products. The current studies on

the technology transfer have connected technology directly with knowledge and more attention is given to the process

of research and development (Dunning, 1994). By scrutinizing the technology definition, there are
