Overlay vs. In-Net


Does your SD-WAN provider give you a network or just a routing device at your branch office?

Global vs. Regional


Can your SD-WAN provider address global application performance issues, or do they specialize in regional deployment?

DIY vs. As-A-Service


Is your SD-WAN solution managed in-house or delivered as-a-service?

  • Must keep router if Ethernet not available
  • OpEx model may not be an option
  • Managed by IT
Overlay_SDWAN

In-Net SD-WAN:

Benefits

  • No CapEx model
  • Locks in carrier/NaaS provider

REGIONAL VS. GLOBAL

Regional_SD_WAN

Regional SD-WANs

  • Reduce network complexity
  • Lower network costs at a branch office
  • Replace regional MPLS by aggregating internet links
  • Cannot address global application performance issues
  • Lack the global network component
Global_SD_WAN

Global SD-WAN:

  • Reduce network complexity
  • Lower network costs at a branch office
  • Leverages a private network that is layered over the internet to accelerate data and application performance
  • Replace global MPLS by combining private network in the middle mile and internet as edge
  • Addresses global application performance issues by combining private network and WAN Optimization

Do It Yourself vs. As-a-Service

Do_it_yourself

Do-It-Yourself SD-WAN

  • WAN management software from DIY SD-WAN vendors makes orchestration of network services easier at the branch.
  • Customer still needs to deal with multiple vendors and contracts. Management becomes resource-intensive.
  • Integration can become a hassle especially when dealing with large global network scenarios.

As-A-Service

  • WAN management is taken care of by the As-a-Service SD-WAN provider.
  • Minimal investment needed in resources to manage the global WAN.
  • Solution is fully integrated.
