What's the difference between an 'X' and an 'O' in the above table?  Would be good for you to add a legend indicating this.

Chris Yoo 2017-07-11 12:41:41

Hi Ralph, my understanding is as follows:

 - X : not supported

 - O : supported

Nikhil Tambe 2017-09-06 01:51:06

Very nice summary, do you have details on the report ?

e.g - When you say WAN Optimization support what all does it iinclude ?Compression > De-Duplication ?

 

 

gsronald 2018-07-17 07:37:12

from my opinion, if dedupe / compression, it may affect the quality of network.  If running VOIP, the voice quality may be affected. 

Balaji KCS 2017-12-20 00:23:24

Does SD-WAN support scenarios where the Applications accessed are in Datacenters or in cloud dcs where the CPE or any BOX cannot be installed ?.  SD-WAN for the enterprise , yes i understand it would work.  I am talking about B-C (Business to CLient) scenarios. 

thanks,

Balaji KCS

Very nice summary. Really useful for comparing products and getting good reference.

Anil Chaitanya Mandru 2018-10-11 04:18:48

Thank you for this summary. But, its more than one year old (which is an eternity in the SD-WAN old :) ).

Hope we will see a update soon.

Wow very nice summary!
What about Meraki? Why it's not considered in SD-WAN solutions?

Mick Russom 2019-04-27 00:22:10

Looking forward to an update to this excellent material. Add more vendors and add more features! Excellent information. 

Bharat 2019-05-09 16:02:13

Hi can you update about merraki in this comparrison

SDWAN-MAN 2019-09-20 02:33:17

Could you please add Peplink / Pepwave to this?
