Editor's comments:
  • SD-Wan technology is the successor of Wan Optimization technology which Silver Peak was the industry leader.
  • The core idea of SD-Wan technology is to split network management into two portions : the centralized controller and the circuit which serves as delivery man.
  • The controller sees and dictates everything.
  • Besides that, SD-Wan allows things to support cloud and seamless integrations.
  • Think of it as software-based networking platform.
