Many service providers go for a multi-vendor SD-WAN strategy. Here is why this strategy makes sense not only in the service provider space, but also for large enterprise deployments.
There is a large variety of open source networking technologies that can be used for building an SD-WAN solution but there are gaps that need to be filled in, mainly in the logic parts and the more advanced networking capabilities. Learn how flexiWAN closes these gaps by offering a comprehensive modular SD-WAN solution.
Creating an open and common SD-WAN overlay protocol is a win for everyone. Enterprises and service providers avoid vendor network lock-in and do not have to settle for a single SD-WAN solution for all of their sites.
A modular SD-WAN is a counter approach to how large vendors designed their SD-WAN products as monolithic systems that stimulate vendor lock-in. With a modular SD-WAN that is offered as open source, users can select the capabilities they need for their SD-WAN solution.
