Cisco SD-WAN use cases

SD-WAN Meaning

SD-WAN (or Software-Defined WAN) eliminates the need to access individual edge devices and infrastructures by separating out WAN control and management of network connections, security, policies, app flows etc. to easily accessible centralised software.


Optimise the user's experience and improve application performance.

Bonded Internet Connections

Cisco SD-WAN can combine connections from multiple internet connections including:

Businesses no longer need to rely on expensive and difficult to scale MPLS connections in order to create a stable and secure corporate WAN. Inexpensive and bandwidth-rich broadband can be used, either in place of or in parallel to existing MPLS connections. Companies we are working with have been able to achieve network cost savings of approximately 40-50% following Cisco SD-WAN implementation.

By bonding connections within your new virtual network you can aggregate bandwidth and provide extra resilience. Traffic can be routed to backup links in the event of a primary link going down, with failover happening in milliseconds to preserve optimal user experience.

Dynamic Traffic Routing

Cisco SD-WAN combines software intelligence with your centrally set policies to dynamically redirect traffic as needed in order to maintain the following:

More sophisticated than traditional WANs, Cisco SD-WAN can switch traffic automatically and seamlessly to the best available network. Specific applications or devices can be prioritised for bandwidth dedication e.g tills and card machines in a retail environment.

Thanks to Cisco SD-WAN’s intelligent routing and prioritisation companies will benefit from significant performance improvements and an enhanced user experience.
