Simplify Application Delivery with Managed SD-WAN

Enterprises today must deliver business applications to end users reliably and cost-effectively, and many are choosing to streamline the process using managed software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN) solutions. According to IDC, the global SD-WAN market for infrastructure and services will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 93 percent between 2015 and 2020, reaching $6 billion.

One company that recently launched a new managed SD-WAN service is GTT Communications, Inc.  GTT’s new managed SD-WAN service expands the breadth and flexibility of its cloud networking services, thus supporting the rapid growth of enterprise network traffic while also connecting people across organizations and around the world.
