For SD WAN, the principle is the same: You're building a network that is no longer solely defined by hardware or physical devices. You can use a universal customer premises equipment (uCPE) appliance, a virtual customer premises equipment (vCPE) appliance, or a combination of the two.
uCPE integrates compute, storage and networking virtual resources, often on a single server, which then allows it to provide multiple network services like SD WAN, security, and 5G as virtual functions to a variety of sites on the same network. vCPE uses virtualized network functions to deliver services like security and connectivity using software instead of dedicated hardware devices.
By harnessing the power of 5G slicing, you can fortify your networks with an extra layer of security for your most mission-critical efforts. To do this in the most effective way possible, you need the right equipment and support.
A virtual SD WAN solution is designed to combine your public and private networks into a virtualized WAN solution with a wide range of benefits including SD WAN security through 5G slicing.
