Glossary and FAQ
Link-state monitoring is the process in which multiple traffic paths are constantly monitored simultaneously to assess both connectivity and traffic performance and ensure traffic is passed over the most optimal path at all times.
Cloud-Enabled Plus Backbone SD-WAN
Cloud-Enabled Plus Backbone SD-WAN is an expansion of the traditional SD-WAN architecture where connectivity and strength of connection are reinforced by the SD-WAN providers network backbone.
SD-WAN Security is the process of inspecting incoming and outgoing traffic (including site-to-site traffic) in an effort to maintain the security and restriction of access to files from unauthorized access, much like standard network security.
Edge Computing is a tight network of microdata centers that process or store critical data locally and push all received data to a central data center or cloud storage repository, in a footprint of less than 100 square feet.
SD-WAN Zero Touch Provisioning
SD-WAN Zero Touch Provisioning (ZTP) is a key benefit of SD-WAN allowing systems to be provisioned and configured automatically, significantly reducing cost and manual overhead.
SD-WAN Regional Hub
An SD-WAN Regional Hub is a network model bringing the best of the hub and spoke and the full mesh architecture to improve performance as well as security, with simplified provisioning alongside extended connectivity.
SD-Wan Vendors are any supplier or vendor offering access to superior SD-WAN infrastructure, typically via subscription model to eliminate costly investment associated with upgrading legacy networks.
Internet of Things (IoT) Protocols go beyond the connectivity of traditional equipment such as desktop computers, laptops, tablets, printers, and phones to include embedded technologies such as security systems, thermostats, and home lighting systems – all via the Internet.
A Failsafe SD-WAN is an SD-WAN Solution that delivers both MPLS-class high availability and high QoE (Quality of Experience) predictable application performance for both TCP-based apps and real-time apps like VoIP and videoconferencing, whether built on a hybrid MPLS plus Internet WAN fabric, or a WAN made up only of Internet connections.
Failsafe SD-WAN Technologies
Failsafe SD-WAN Technologies are a set of software capabilities of an SD-WAN offering that are able to deliver predictable application performance over a multi-link WAN fabric that includes Internet connections.
Wide Area Network (WAN) Optimization, also referred to as WAN acceleration, is a category of techniques used to make the network and applications perform faster and more reliably across the WAN.
WAN Optimization technology
Wide Area Network (WAN) Optimization technology uses a combination of protocol optimizations, using data deduping and compression, data caching and congestion control technologies.
