SD-WAN is an acronym for software-defined networking in a wide area network (WAN). SD-WAN simplifies the management and operation of a WAN by decoupling (separating) the networking hardware from its control mechanism. The primary motive of SD-WAN is to build a high-performance WAN connectivity by best utilizing various WAN connectivity options such as low-cost Internet links and MPLS connectvity.
