SD-WAN is an acronym for software-defined networking (SDN) in a wide area network (WAN). SD-WAN simplifies the management and operation of a WAN by decoupling the networking hardware from its control mechanism. This concept is similar to how software-defined networking implements virtualization technology to improve data center management and operation
WANs allow companies to extend their computer networks over large distances, connecting remote branch offices to data centers and to each other, and delivering applications and services required to perform business functions. Due to the physical constraints imposed by the propagation time over large distances, and the need to integrate multiple service providers to cover global geographies (often crossing nation boundaries), WANs face important operational challenges, including network congestion, packet delay variation, packet loss, and even service outages. Modern applications such as VoIP calling, videoconferencing, streaming media, and virtualized applications and desktops require low latency. Bandwidth requirements are also increasing, especially for applications featuring high-definition video. It can be expensive and difficult to expand WAN capability, with corresponding difficulties related to network management and troubleshooting
We has already given information about SD-WAN which is suitable for application in the retail business, this time it is the turn for the hospitality business to look at SD WAN for their network infrastructure.
Hospitality businesses such as hotels, restaurants and cafes rely heavily on internet connections to support their business operations. However, the large number of branches spread across various cities makes it difficult to manage & provision the network. SD-WAN can be a solution to this problem, with its ZTP feature, network provisioning for new branches will be easier.
In addition, with the SD-WAN ability to handle multiple uplinks, your hotel or restaurant network uptime will be maintained. In conclusion … the hospitality business usually needs connections between branches and centers to access management applications, with SD WAN features these needs will be delivered properly and efficiently.
