WAN Monitoring Guide

How to Monitor Your WAN to Support SD-WAN and Multi-Cloud

Guide Highlights

This guide helps network engineers, architects and executives implement best practices in network monitoring to support SD-WAN and multi-cloud deployments.

  • SD-WAN is getting traction at distributed organizations due to cost reduction and centralized management.
  • WAN complexity is increasing due to the introduction of systems virtualization and overlay networks as part of SD-WAN services.
  • Use of regular Internet connection has made it more difficult for network engineers to proactively diagnose performance issues.
  • Traditional network monitoring tools based on SNMP and passive protocols are insufficient to detect and troubleshoot remote network issues and end-user experience.
