How the Cisco SD-WAN architecture works

Cisco SD-WAN is a secure, cloud-scale architecture that is open, programmable, and scalable. Through the Cisco vManage console, you can quickly establish an SD-WAN overlay fabric. Use it to connect data centers, branches, campuses, and colocation facilities to improve network speed, security, and efficiency.
