Top 10 SD-WAN stories of 2023


"2023 has been a banner year for SD-WAN, with the technology continuing to mature and become increasingly essential for businesses of all sizes. SD-WAN adoption is being driven by multiple factors. For one, applications continue to migrate to the cloud, which requires WANs to be re-architected to meet a more distributed environment from the traditional hub-and-spoke data center model. The move toward secure access service edge (SASE) where SD-WAN is more tightly integrated with security service edge (SSE) is also driving adoption.  With analysis firm IDC predicting the SD-WAN market will reach $7.5 billion with a compound annual growth rate of 10.1% by 2027, SD-WAN will remain one of the most important markets in enterprise networking for the foreseeable future.  In 2024, expect even greater convergence of SD-WAN with SASE solutions, AI to play a more significant role in optimizing network performance and automating routine tasks, increased demand for SD-WAN solutions that can effectively manage traffic at the edge of the network, and continued integration with other emerging technologies like 5G and Wi-Fi 6."
