As software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) continues to become a mainstream technology, its relationship to WAN
Optimization (WANop) must be examined. At first glance, the two can appear alike, and are often erroneously
mentioned as synonymous technologies. A deeper examination however, will reveal two distinct and highly
complementary technologies with very limited feature overlap. This document aims to demystify the relationship
between the two, outline the market shifts that have led to a reduced WANop sector, and provide a recommendation
on deploying both technologies in a modern enterprise WAN.
As organizations prioritize digital transformation initiatives, many are finding that legacy
networks are holding them back. To support new business models, cloud adoption, and an
explosion in connected devices, modern networks must support interoperability across data
centers, multiple clouds, branch locations, and edge devices. Applications now run at every
point on this spectrum, and they are critical to businesses’ ability to win in hypercompetitive marketplaces. Yet, even as business success has become more dependent on
this new architecture, and the amount of data flowing across connections has increased,
many organizations still lack a unified approach to management, automation, and security
Digital transformation has moved out of the early-adopter phase and into mainstream adoption. According to the ZK Research 2018 IT Priorities Study, 88% of businesses now have digital
initiatives underway, up from 84% in 2017. The urgency of IT and business leaders is well warranted, as companies that master being digital will leapfrog the competition and be able to sustain
a market-leading position. Those that lag in their digital initiatives will fall farther behind and will
struggle to survive.
The key to digital success is having an agile IT foundation that enables businesses to adapt to
market transitions faster than the competition. However, there is no single technology called “digital transformation.” Rather, it is powered by the following four key enabling technologies:
The SD-WAN market is in the early growth stage of the product lifecycle. Key factors driving market adoption include: cost
savings from efficient usage of private and public networks, ability to optimize hybrid cloud connectivity, and applicationaware routing. Below is a summary of key research findings of this report:
The Wide Area Network (WAN) is in the midst of a significant evolution. Software-defined WAN
(SD-WAN) is the key factor driving this evolution and bringing along with it many transformational
changes. SD-WAN has enabled several new WAN uses cases, such as enabling reliable, secure and
high performance support of software-as-a-service (SaaS), cloud compute, cloud storage, cloud
security and the ability to use non-deterministic Internet services to provide business-class transport.
The traditional WAN architecture was ill equipped to support these new use cases.
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,
For many organizations, the wide area network (WAN) infrastructure that connects an enterprise’s remote and branch
offices has not changed for decades. Over the years, organizations consolidated many regional data centers into a few
highly available data center locations which meant that remote locations had to connect to centralized applications over
WANs and all internet traffic went through these data centers as well. This introduced bandwidth constraints and latency
issues. The development in WAN optimization provided incremental and measurable improvement in WAN performance
and provided some bandwidth cost containment. However, that technology typically was only deployed at the most
problematic sites that struggled to achieve acceptable levels of performance and user experience. It did not solve all the
issues with WAN connectivity.
WAN infrastructure planning was limited to increases in capacity that were met by provisioning additional carrier MPLS
(multiprotocol label switching)
A key benefit of an SD-WAN is that you need not replace any part of your existing network. SDWAN simplifies your overall network architecture and management, and can be phased in as a
parallel, overlay network. Sites are migrated in phases based on their type, location or any other
sequence of priority you may have. This paper covers the migration design thought process,
routing considerations, and a step-by-step migration path to insert your traditional WAN sites into
an SD-WAN architecture.
Over the last couple of years SD-WAN technology has matured into a mainstream solution. Yet, the
most appropriate migration path is not always clear. While there are many considerations to
balance during a migration, the enduring benefit of an SD-WAN architecture is simplification:
branch design, data center design, routing, edge platform choices, security choices, management.
To ensure an understanding of the fundamental concepts, let’s quickly discuss the architecture and components of SD-WAN,
and then move on to cover the best practices of various aspects of an SD-WAN migration

What is SD-WAN?
Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) is the application of software-based
network technologies to WAN connections to more effectively route all network traffic
between headquarters or data centers, remote and branch offices, and the cloud.
More simply, it is the method of leveraging the benefits of the cloud, the bandwidth of
broadband and existing enterprise-wide network infrastructure to more efficiently and
cost effectively transmit media (data, video, voice) and quickly access cloud
applications from every location in the network.
SD-WAN dynamically utilizes multiple available connections (MPLS, broadband, LTE)
to find the optimal delivery path for traffic across the entire network, shaping the
bandwidth as needed to eliminate jitter and dropped data packets, thereby delivering
an optimal user experience regardless of location.
The more sophisticated solutions will first attempt to dynamically steer traffic to the
best available link and if the available link
Software-Defined WAN, or SD-WAN for short, is at the leading
edge of software-based networking deployments. SD-WAN
offers significant business value for organizations with distributed branches in terms of business agility and the ability to
leverage Internet bandwidth economics – put simply, cost savings.
This Software-Defined WAN For Dummies book explains the way
for IT and business managers to migrate to a distributed network
which is less complex, more flexible and easier to manage. With
this book, VMware and Dan Pitt make an important contribution
to better understanding the future of WAN implementations
The network of yesterday is not the network that can take businesses into the future. As
mission critical enterprise applications move to the cloud, wide area network (WAN)
must adapt to become agile, flexible, and scale rapidly. Leading IT trends such as Internet
of Things (IoT), Software as a Service (SaaS), cloud storage, enterprise mobility, emerging
transport alternatives, and globalization increase the importance of how network assets
are leveraged and how the network is conceptualized. The advantages of public and
private data centers and cloud-based applications are significantly diminished if the
network is slow, inflexible, and unpredictable. Erratic network performance with high
latency, jitter and packet loss can significantly impact user adoption, satisfaction, and
overall corporate productivity.

The healthcare industry is evolving at a rapid pace from both technology and business perspectives. New technologies are
dramatically improving healthcare, from diagnostic imaging and scanning tools to the digitization of medical records. From
the business side, the industry continues to consolidate, with metropolitan or regional medical providers absorbing local
clinics and rural practices, and large retailers acquiring pharmacies, minute clinics, and urgent care facilities. As a result,
many healthcare companies are now competing with retailers for business.
This competition may be good for the customers (i.e., the patients) who are demanding higher levels of care and a better
overall experience. This could mean better access to new diagnostic tests, test results, and specialists who may be located
far from the patient’s location. Healthcare providers need to work toward providing the same care and experience to
customers in their main facilities as they do in distributed clinics, ur
