Top 10 SDN & SDWAN Solutions Providers in Europe - 2020

Businesses today demand highly flexible and scalable networks to leverage the rampant technological innovations and remain competitive. However, most of the existing networks are static by design that makes them expensive to run and difficult to maintain. Software-defined networking (SDN) has entered the scene in a big way with the promise of facilitating the deployment of enterprise-grade communication services in an agile, cost-effective, and flexible manner. With better visibility into the network flow achieved through SDN, companies operating in different geographical locations can benchmark their network performance and achieve faster returns on their business applications.

As more organizations continue to migrate their applications and solutions to the cloud, traditional WANs are struggling to cater to the rising demands for high bandwidth and optimized network control management. The traditional backhaul techniques add latency, which in turn, negatively impacts the end-user experience and results in lost opportunity for a business. SD-WAN can help enterprises improve user experience and business outcomes, enhance business agility and responsiveness, simplify WAN architecture, and reduce the cost while maintaining foolproof security. As networks become more intelligent and automated, IT teams and network administrators can focus their energy on the core business processes and ensure maximum compliance with all of the regulatory mandates in any region of the world.

With new technologies flooding the markets, companies must identify the specific solutions required to fuel the productivity and success of their business. As SDN and SD-WAN continue to grow through massive adoption and continuous innovation, the team at Enterprise Networking Magazine has shortlisted top-performing SD-WAN Companies as well as SDN and SD-WAN solution providers in Europe. We hope the exhaustive information presented in the edition comes in handy for you to choose the right SDN solutions partner.

We present to you Enterprise Networking Magazine’s “Top 10 SDN & SD-WAN Solutions Providers in Europe 2020.”
