Oracle’s patented SD-WAN technology contains a number of key capabilities necessary to tame the public internet and deliver a failsafe SD-WAN over a multilink WAN fabric that can include internet connections. It starts with the ability to do continuous unidirectional measurement of packet loss, latency, jitter, and bandwidth utilization on all possible paths between any pair of locations, which enables subsecond response to adapt to network events.
A truly failsafe SD-WAN technology offering provides the following capabilities:
Continuous unidirectional measurement of packet loss, latency, jitter, and bandwidth utilization
Per-packet forwarding decisions and subsecond response to adapt to network issues
Intelligent link aggregation, including the ability to use all bandwidth across multiple disparate links, even for a single high-bandwidth flow
Optional packet replication for real-time traffic, delivering platinum-quality support for real-time applications
Inbound multisource quality of service (QoS) with inbound congestion avoidance, providing 90+ percent sustained utilization on shared links without negatively impacting QoE
Centralized orchestration/analytics offering unprecedented WAN and application performance visibility
Centralized control is a key element of SD-WAN, allowing secure and intelligent traffic and data transmission through the network, meaning better application performance, user satisfaction, efficiency and reduced IT costs. FieldEngineer.com can help you gain access to a global community of SD-WAN engineers that can help you take advantage of this emerging technology.
