About Riverbed’s SDWAN
Riverbed enters SDWAN market by replacing the architecture of the traditional WAN network. SD-WAN streamlines the way networks are designed, deployed and managed. It also brings powerful capabilities that increase the efficiency and agility of IT teams. 

Network performance is significant for business-critical applications and unified communications particularly when applications run in the cloud. But not all network traffic needs to move rapidly. Software-defined WAN associations traditional quality-of-service with the capability to navigate the traffic of different applications and users onto appropriate paths.

SD-WAN can recognize network traffic by source/destination, application, and users. Then it routes the traffic according to centrally-defined security policies that control access to zones and the Internet.
