Last month, I authored a blog post that asked whether it was time for enterprises to move on from the branch router. In that blog, I framed the other options available to organizations that want to head down that route, but I didn’t really emphasize the benefits. Below are the main benefits enterprises realize if they’re ready to move beyond the branch router.
Five years ago, there really wasn’t a technology available to make the bold leap to retire branch routers. SD-WANs have come a long way since then and the router-less branch office is now achievable. Early adopters of this trend will see better business resilience and agility with greater control and much lower capital and operational costs.
