In this week's post, Jim Lancaster explains SD-WAN (Software Defined-Wide Area Network) and the benefits this cutting-edge technology offers to small & midsize businesses. 

Is your company's network struggling to keep up with it's workload? Are your people stymied by lagging download speeds? Unfortunately, these are common frustrations found within many of today's organizations. As you move more data and functionality into the cloud, the burden your internet connection must support becomes heavier and heavier, so to speak. 

The obvious answer is "purchase more network bandwidth", but for many small businesses this isn't such a simple proposition. As any seasoned executive will tell you, enterprise-grade internet bandwidth doesn't come cheap, and CFOs already irked by such high costs with be loathe to shell out even more cash for faster service. Yet for many years, this was the only option. Want more? Pay more.
