Hybrid WAN

Turbo-boost your Hybrid WAN with SD-WAN.

A Hybrid WAN enables shared use of both private (MPLS) and Internet circuits at all business locations. An SD-WAN unleashes the additional efficiencies inherent in these transport options: traffic is steered intelligently across the right path at the right time, a guaranteed satisfactory user experience for SaaS applications accessed from every location, and a unique level of IT manager visibility and control of traffic routing, application performance and policy management.

Perhaps you already deployed a Hybrid WAN...

Your Hybrid WAN already leveraged both MPLS and Internet circuits at all business locations, and gave you efficiencies in route selection and business application performance by selecting Internet paths for some traffic—but it also left some frustrated users in its wake, grouching about inconsistent network response.

Your Hybrid WAN deployment eased traffic congestion and delivered efficiencies from your investments in bandwidth. Yet specifying policies to steer the right application traffic over the right circuit at the right time continues to be a challenge, even knowing what traffic went where is often not easy to ascertain.

And how do you get SaaS traffic to its destination without taking it on a trip halfway around the world?

...and you think you might need an SD-WAN.

A Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN) is a transformational approach to simplify branch office connectivity and networking to achieve:

Assured application performance: Transport-independent performance for the most demanding applications by leveraging the most economical bandwidth available.

Business policy automation: Simplified IT operation, offering zero-touch deployments and one-click service insertion.

Managed on-ramp to the cloud: Direct SaaS cloud access with performance, reliability and security.


SD-WAN technology provisions virtual overlays and moves network management into the cloud, limiting costly on-premise equipment and distributed policy management.


Premium performance leveraging economical bandwidth.

SD-WAN technology aggregates multiple connections into a virtual overlay network.

SD-WAN uses deep application recognition, path selection, dynamic traffic engineering and link condition analytics to optimize link and bandwidth use to deliver superior application performance to all users in the most cost-efficient manner. It provides simplified, optimized, shortest-path and secure traffic delivery to SaaS without backhauling traffic through distant data center aggregation sites as hybrid WAN architectures often require.

With SD-WAN you can turn on cloud security services, leverage dynamic tunnel meshing, and rely on cloud gateway services to provide optimal and secure SaaS and cloud access from any location in the network.

Optimally steer your application traffic.

With multiple Internet/broadband links, SD‐WAN technology, uses a deep application recognition engine to identify applications and dynamically steers application traffic—on a per‐packet basis, in the middle of active sessions—to ensure enterprise-grade performance and availability. Real-time analytics on actual link conditions enable sub-second traffic steering around black-outs and brown-outs.

Manage, view, control – easier,
better, cost-effective.

SD-WAN cloud orchestration allow enterprises unprecedented network visibility and control:

IT managers can define analytics-based actions so the network responds automatically, in real time, to certain activity and events.

Overall visibility and management of both application-priority policies, as well as security policies, provide integrated viewing, tracking, adjusting and monitoring.

SD-WAN provides zero-touch deployment for distributed locations, requiring nothing more than power and network connectivity for a remote site to come online, automatically learn its configuration, and start operation.

“I can’t believe how low our OPEX is now. We easily and affordably got everything we needed to fix our network issues and utilized our existing WAN system.”

Triton chose VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud™ to replace Cisco and Netgear solution for an enterprise-class SD-WAN solution to improve application performance particularly of VoIP traffic, gain network visibility and meet PCI 3.0 audit requirements while reducing overall branch network costs by over 50%.
