SD-WAN is now the foundation to bring enterprise connectivity and security everywhere.
A software-defined WAN is a software-driven wide-area network, agnostic to WAN transport (supporting MPLS, Internet, LTE, etc.) and built as a virtualized network overlay. The result is a cost-effective and easy to manage system compared to a traditional WAN.
The technology is considered for multiple domains covering IT (Information Technology or the office part of the enterprise) and OT (Operational Technology – the factory part).
At the moment the SD-WAN market continues with 34% CAGR expected for the next 2 to 3 years.
Kontron Transportation identified this strong market evolution of secure SD-WAN in 2015, partnering with VeloCloud. This partnership has been reinforced with VMware, and the partner connect program signed between Kontron Transportation and VMware in 2020. As a major SD-WAN industry leader, VMware provides best-in-class SD-WAN functionality and scalability, combining VMware SD-WAN™ technology and security for multiple architectures.
With more than 3000 sites deployed and one of the largest SD-WAN networks in Europe, Kontron Transportation and his customers confirm the top benefits of SD-WAN solutions: security improvement, better management and agility, bandwidth optimization and cost savings, and last but not least, faster Cloud applications performance. A software-based WAN architecture improves the user experience, enhances reliability, especially for business-critical applications and facilitates the transition to a Cloud-based architecture. SD-WAN connects branch offices, remote workers, legacy data centers and private Clouds around the globe, while at the same time being the lower-cost, next-generation alternative to a traditional WAN. Finally and most importantly, market adoption of public Cloud offering (such as Office 365 or any other Software as a Service offer) is everyday confirmed with enterprises moving more and more IT based application to the Cloud. The VMware SD-WAN solution improves End-to-End security, reliability and user experience thanks to a worldwide gateway infrastructure located next to major Public Cloud point of presences.
