SD-WAN Solution

As various software services migrate to the cloud, Accton’s dedicated engineering teams are surging ahead to develop open, software-defined network (SDN) platforms that will provide the foundation of the emerging next-generation networks. Part of this development involves the transformation of WAN networks into software-defined WANs (SD-WANs).

Most traditional WANs use Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) networks to link remote sites to a central data center in what is essentially a private, static architecture. These networks are expensive and complex to set up and operate, and are known to be networks lacking flexibility and scalability. SD-WANs employ the concept of abstraction to define software capabilities that are independent of the underlying hardware, enabling software services and applications to run over various networks and bring a high level of flexibility and agility. Rather than just replacing existing MPLS networks, SD-WANs operate as an “overlay” on all old and new network links, delivering a secure, reliable business-grade performance that organizations demand.
