SD-WAN (software-defined WAN) is a specific application of software-defined networking (SDN) technology applied to WAN connections, which are used to connect enterprise networks, including distributed networks. It is a revolutionary approach to simplify branch networking and assure enterprise application performance to the cloud.
In the past, a WAN might be used, for example, to connect branch offices to a central corporate network, or to connect data centers separated by distance. And these WAN connections often used technology which required special proprietary hardware. However, enterprises today are demanding more flexible, open, and cloud-based WAN technologies, rather than installing proprietary or specialized WAN technology that often involves expensive, fixed circuits, or proprietary hardware.
The main goal of Q-Balancer SD-WAN technology is to deliver a business-class, secure, and simple cloud-enabled WAN connection with as much open and software-based technology as possible. Our SD-WAN solution creates a smart and responsive network, one that adapts in real time to bandwidth demand and actual network conditions, ensuring that presently and regardless of network issues, critical applications have priority and all applications take the best quality path through the network, ensuring uptime so business can get done.
