Overall Satisfaction with Cisco SD-WAN

We provide consulting services to customers and do the implementation of Cisco solutions. Cisco SD-WAN is a hot topic that customers are looking at to automate their infrastructure and have app visibility of their traffic. It is also expected to reduce WAN costs, by introducing trust on internet links through having proactive SLA monitoring and automated failover based on apps' KPIs.

Cisco Meraki auto-VPN works great and easily in SMBs. Meraki has few limitations that won’t make it as number 1 choice for big customers. Cisco vip tela solution is more inclusive. It has all the integration's capability
Cisco SD-WAN is well suited for customers who have 15+ branches that have complex requirements and high availability needs. I wouldn't recommend Cisco SD-WAN for customers whose infrastructure and operations are not mature enough, including administrator training and cloud strategy. Customers who have ISR routers would greatly benefit from repackaging their existing routers to work with Cisco SD-WAN without the need to buy new boxes.
