2018 Trends in SD-WAN

Today, most WAN traffic, to and from branch and remote sites, is destined for the cloud, either to SaaS services or applications hosted in an IaaS environment. The traditional WAN was architected for branch-to-data-center traffic flows, not to efficiently support new cloud-driven traffic patterns. Starting in 2018, most enterprises will adopt a "cloud-first" SD-WAN architecture designed to efficiently and effectively support the ongoing evolution in their application mix.
