Planning Software Aware Policies For SD-WAN Edge Optimization

Software-defined wide area networks (SD-WAN) are increasingly becoming more common in organizations. An SD-WAN can offer a lot of benefits over traditional networking architectures, but businesses will need to plan accordingly. One of those considerations is how application performance plays a role at the WAN edge.

SD-WANs can implement application awareness. What this means is the WAN can identify which traffic is coming from specific applications and route that traffic through the appropriate routes automatically. With application-aware networking, network admins can define software policies for things like SLAs. The network will use those policies to determine the best possible route to take through a WAN to avoid things like packet loss or increased latency.

By setting application policies, apps like Microsoft Teams or Zoom can ensure that there is a limited amount of video call delay while reducing the amount of network traffic flowing through a network. Configuring application-aware policies is only one aspect of planning edge connections for the SD-WAN, though. By planning those edge connections appropriately, network admins can fully optimize their SD-WAN for performance and cost.
