Network complexity not only increases IT costs, but can also create network fragility and security risks. Recent approaches to reducing network complexity through Software Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN) offer some short-term relief, but are still largely based on decades-old network paradigms that only create more complexity in the long run.
Session Smart Networking is different. Session Smart networks can by truly simplify the network, as well as provide a breadth of SD-WAN capabilities – including application visibility, software-define branches, multi-path routing and network segmentation. As a result, organizations using a Session Smart approach can realize breakthrough gains in performance, agility, security and scale.
In this webinar, 128 Technology and Light Reading will discuss the benefits of session-smart routers in SD-WAN deployments, which include:
- A tunnel-free architecture that eliminates the 20% to 30% bandwidth tax incurred by overlay encapsulation and enables full mesh any-to-any routing for services.
- A Zero Trust Security model operating on a “deny-all” routing fabric that transforms any IP network into a distributed network firewall, providing dynamic encryption, per-hop authentication and global access control.
- The ability for the network to make intelligent, application-specific decisions regarding network optimization whenever problems occur.
