The new business model, the emergence of the Third Platform, SaaS and Cloud-based applications is raising the bar for traditional data centres as businesses strive to gain increased agility with the new service model of fion-demand softwarefl.The connection requirements of businesses has outgrown the ability of MPLS WAN private services to interconnect remote offices and data centresSD-WAN technology allows the creation of hybrid networks that join multiple access technologies, such as Internet services, dynamic traffic routing, and real-time connection provision, based on availa- ble bandwidth or selected criteria as well as reduc- ing aggregate bandwidth costs. network capacity, cost reduction, and better perfor – mance as well as better reliability for business critical applications like VDI (including XenDesktop), appli -cation virtualization (including XenApp), VoIP, video- conferencing, ERP, CRM and corporate applications without compromise the best of WAN Optimization technology.NetScaler SD-WAN can join multiple WAN connec-tions to create a single, secure, logical link in order to increase WAN throughput. The logical connection guaranties the reliability of critical application traf – – – tuations and bandwidth availability. NetScaler SD- WAN allows businesses to integrate MPLS with the cost broadband. This technology logically binds MPLS and multiple broadband paths into a single logical path. With virtuali- zation of the WAN, high priority applications are gua- ranteed to function well, taking full advantage of the bandwidth on all routes. Additionally, critical business processes are protected against network outages.NetScaler SD-WAN virtual WAN, measures trans -fer delay between WAN components, monitors WAN performance, MPLS connection health and quality, and uses this information to apply quality of service to the data, route selection, traffic shaping, failover and other functions. It allows organisations to mana- ge priorities for each application. Traffic shaping and dynamic bandwidth reservation are additional methods with which to control quality of service for distinct classes of traffic, as well as packet reorde- ring to further increase MPLS performance.Juan Rodríguez, Director BDM, Delivery Networks, EMEA, Citrix SystemsSD-WAN: The answer to networking demandsEditorial

From a technological viewpoint, the concept of SD-WAN is simple: the corpo -rate devices at the extremity of the WAN channel traffic to other devices via mul- tiservice or multivendor WAN networks which are centrally controlled, allowing network managers to configure and con- trol traffic based on centralized security policies and rules.THE VALUE OF SD-WANSD-WAN uses cloud based software and technology to simplify the delivery of WAN virtualisation allows network administrators to more easily manage network services through abstraction of higher-level func – tionality. SD-Wan allows IT and business managers to easily deploy internet-based connectivity, quickly, with quality, security better bandwidth and lower costs.The emergence of new technologies has meant that network traffic in distribu- SD-WAN – Responding to the needs of distributed enterprisesCompanies are looking for solutions that mean less financial outlay for head-office whilst at the same time simplifying operations. Given these considerations, SD-WAN can be seen as an alternative that can be integrated within the entire WAN architecture.SD-WAN Technology

ted organizations is manipulated in new ways. Not only do remote users need more bandwidth, notably in areas such as video or media, but also they also now expect immediate access to cloud based and SaaS (Software as a Service) applica- tions such as Salesforce, Office 365, Lync and remote storage, such as Dropbox.Traditional MPLS networks that carry traffic from remote offices to the data centre cannot offer the low latency and high performance needed to access cloud based applications. In addition, manage- ment and security requirements must be taken into account as well as the inherent complexity of remote operations.SD-WAN: THE BENEFITS distributed organizations?They include the following:Business Agility. The rapid rollout the need for on-site IT support. The band- width can easily be adjusted (increased or decreased) depending on business needs.Bandwidth savings. Internet con -nection is readily available, quick to de- ploy, and comes at a much lower cost than equivalent MPLS networks.

SD-WAN frees you from the tra -ditional inconveniences and constraints of MPLS networks and bundles security, performance and connectivity between cloud and office, which significantly im- proves the experience for users in remote offices when they use SaaS or cloud-base applications.SD-WAN: FACTORS TO CONSIDERWhen evaluating SD-WAN deployment, network administrators and business managers should take into account cer- tain factors:It™s easy to rollout and administer.

centres. Now we have virtual computing and it has reached every corner of the IT world.On the other hand, compa-nies are migrating to centralized networking with the adoption of other trends such as cloud, mo- bility or IoT networks, which fur – ther increases the importance of the corporate network role.The result is a significant in-crease in video traffic, on top of that which is generated between various devices and the data cen- tre, the result being, more band- width sensitive applications.In summary, the network has become a strategic asset and the need has arisen to move to software-defined WANs (SD- WAN), which solves the major headaches for network adminis- trators. This new way of looking at the network gives the needed flexibility and responsiveness, together with the control and security necessary on a private network.SD-WAN: Present and future of the enterprise networkSD-WAN MarketAssuming that the volume of WAN traf-communications is a factor well worth con-sidering.

LIMITATIONS OF TRADITIONAL WIDE AREA NETWORKSCurrent network architecture is more than a decade old and is therefore not up to today™s challenges, marked by an increase in connected devices, mobility, cloud models, increased security needs etc. The result? The current infrastruc- ture is unable to comply with the secu- rity requirements or with current busi – ness models which require fast response times, unavailable over an inflexible net- work Œ all this makes the evolution of the network a priority not just for the CIO but the entire management structure.EVOLUTION OF THE WANBusiness needs and market trends drive network evolution. This fact is ta- king its place alongside traditional issues and is catching the attention of manage-ment. And the solution needs to result in an intelligent network, a network that can adapt to business needs Œ there is no better solution than the Software Defined WAN, conceived not just for the present, but also the future needs of the enterprise. The new network con- cept must connect users to applications regardless of the desktop device, the connectivity route or whether it is re – sides in the cloud, whether the services are private or public, and without physi- cal barriers to users who now expect to work with mobility and freedom; Provide a uniform experience irrespective of where the connexion is made; Simplify the management overhead of distribu- ted services, even, ideally, automating them; Integrate security into the net – work, with multiple layers and multiple control points; Apply prioritization and optimization criteria depending on the data and applications used on the net; Allow applications to be deployed without special network requirements; Provide more visibility to network managers allowing them to eliminate potential conflicts in the network; Rapid provisio- ning of applications and services in or- der to maintain the business™s competi- tive edge; And optimize traffic for cloud and mobility, providing the best user ex – indicates that the customer experience is one of the major concerns of network administrators.Gartner, speaking of the Cloud and businesses are using public cloud based services, a trend that is likely to increase increment in the mobilization of applica – tions, making them available to mobile devices away from the office. This is a critical trend that Gartner indicates as second in the priorities for CIOs, given half of the user base. This implies that network managers must anticipate and plan alternative methods of connection for mobile devices in the corporate WAN. WAN market was worth almost $225 mil- lion. IDC forecasts that the market will more than $2.6 billion. For the forecast period through 2020, IDC estimates that SD-WAN market will be worth more than $6 billion in 2020. SD-WAN MarketIn the Market Guide for Soft-ware-Defined WAN, Gartner finds that Citrix has a catalogue of Virtu- al WAN solutions that will facilitate SD-WAN deployments, many of these, according to the report, pri- marily in subsidiaries and remote offices.Also, it says that Citrix is a choice for businesses looking to optimize their WAN and dynamic route se- lection, particularly if they already use Citrix applications.Citrix, according to GartnerWould you like to know more about the SD-WAN?
