The internet and other forms of telecommunications serve as an important everyday platform for people globally, helping to simplify the lives of others, while keeping them connected. Although all forms of communication are of equal significance, of the most phenomenal and useful forms of these is the internet.

The internet is a major tool, and is not only essential for communication purposes, but is a powerful source for researching data quickly on pretty much any subject. Though the process of using the internet seems to be fairly simple for users, (one click of the mouse or a “send” button), the elemental factors that work together in order to sustain internet connections is a fairly complex one.

The way that internet connections are established is that they are distributed through the use of VPN connections, or what is more commonly preferred…MPLS connections. Such connections are the fundamental platforms that serve as tools that direct internet traffic flow conduction.

Simply operating off of slower VPN network connections is not the goal of companies, as slow connections are becoming more of a thing of the past. The truth is that it is basically not a factor, considering most people want the fastest internet speed possible. However, the VPN circuiting is cheaper… while MPLS connections are preferable yet costly. Based on the vast disparity between VPN and MPLS server types, IT industry operates wanted to draw that fine line that would create a gray area between the two connection types. Companies that provide routing for such internet services, and the companies that sell them aim to provide the most reliable, yet speedy internet service for consumers, without it costing them more out of pocket. In other words an option that provides the “best of both worlds.”

The initial troubleshooting period that brought Software Defined WANs / SD WAN into such a complex scenario of internet circuiting issues was birthed largely because of the slow and fast speed connections (VPN) and (MLPS), not being able to coincide without disrupting the connection and data transmission process through means of regular WAN. Such problems revolved around the differences in the two circuit connections, which wasn’t properly allowing for optimal traffic routing. The goal then of all operators behind such technology became to find some way to level out the inconsistencies of the routing system by providing a balance between the two circuit connections.

Due to the need for balancing the circuiting issues between two very different routing types (VPN) and (MLPS), a new hybrid form for internet routing serving as a median platform for slower and faster working connections became introduced. This new routing hybrid became known as Software Defined WANs… also known as SD-WANs. SD-WANs soon became a proven way to create a harmonic balance for an internet connection speed that was a lot faster, and enabled a reliable internet network for both private and public internet connections.

The process of SD-WAN’s circuiting is carried out through a strategized method of controlling multiple network connections, and selecting the appropriate flow for traffic as determined by the WAN link’s real-time estimated expectation. SD-WANs are the direct manifestation of the contemporary technological solution created in order to rectify the issue of outdated and inefficient network routing methods. Thus the Birth of Software Defined WANs became a revolutionary age for the internet.

However, the internet is only one form of telecommunications that has been positively affected by SD-WAN, but It currently remains to be the largest. This SD-WAN technology is made possible through the usage of sophisticated circuiting and satellite systems, and is responsible for several types of IT clouds that work for different areas, involving technological devices and their functions, which includes apps also.
