Cellular rises as a driving force for Citrix SD-WAN adoption
There is no doubting the impact that software defined networking (SDN) is having in changing traditional approaches to connectivity. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the WAN with software defined wide area networks (SD-WAN).
This combination of cheaper commodity line connections, fast and streamlined hardware, all controlled by remote management software in the cloud is growing fast. In part this is because it offers lower cost, while still being well managed and secure. It also delivers on the software defined potential for truly flexible connectivity and capacity.
Wireless Access for Transportation Services
Cellular or wireless connectivity is often a part of the SD-WAN proposition, generally as a resilient back-up connection in the event of physical line failure. However, it can also be used when there is no fixed alternative, to provide ad hoc networks, for example, in transport or logistics with Vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs). A similar approach also works in static locations where the network requirement is short term. This could be an ad hoc extension to connect a remote building site or the emergency services at the scene of a major incident or fire.
