What is Meraki SD-WAN?

Meraki SD-WAN is a cloud-based solution for software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN) offered by Cisco Meraki. It provides a centralized, secure, and scalable way to manage an organization's WAN infrastructure and improve the performance of cloud-based and internet-based applications. Meraki SD-WAN helps organizations simplify the deployment and management of branch office networks, enabling them to focus on delivering better experiences for their customers and employees. With Meraki SD-WAN, organizations can take advantage of multiple WAN links to increase reliability and improve application performance. Meraki SD-WAN also integrates security features, such as firewall and VPN, to help protect branch office networks from cyber threats.

What makes Meraki different?

Meraki brings software-defined networking to everyone by enabling administrators to create network configurations using a user interface in the cloud. Therefore, the device connects to an internet connection and automatically applies the configuration without having to set up the device in advance.

An Intelligent Network Solution for Adaptive Traffic Control:

With SD-WAN, you can control how traffic is routed and prioritized across multiple uplinks, allowing your network to instantly and intelligently adapt to changing performance conditions, ensuring latency-sensitive traffic like VoIP or point-of-sale services have the throughput and optimization they need.
