Federal agencies are turning to Software Defined Wide Area Networks (SD-WAN) to build a next-generation network that provides the security and flexibility needed to support their evolving hybrid cloud needs. They need to be able to dynamically and intelligently utilize all available transports to deliver a superior user experience regardless of location. To orchestrate this change requires fundamental core features in a SD-WAN solution provider.
RavenTek and Riverbed Technology are assisting an agency, which serves more than 40 million customers across an extensive network of approximately 100 locations, to streamline business processes and improve the customer experience for clients, employees, and public and private partners. This is the first SD-WAN deployment within a federal civilian agency.
