There has been a rapid increase in interest and adoption of SD-WAN in Asia-Pacific over the past 18 months.As digital transformation accelerates in the region and more MNCs move toward a hybrid IT model, the need to ensure secure, highly agile, and flexible network access to branch offices across the region becomes more pivotal than ever.
This paper will discuss and highlight the following:
- Asia-Pacific will be ground zero for global foreign investments.
- MNCs expanding deep into Asia need to select service providers that can deliver global consistency of services in emerging markets.
- Asia-Pacific is a geographically challenged and diverse region that poses serious issues for WAN, many of which Ovum believes can be resolved by SD-WAN adoption.
- The top drivers of SD-WAN adoption are cost optimisation, fast provisioning, robust redundancy, and application visibility and security.
