How to choose between DIY or Managed SD WAN

In this article SAS Global Communications, Peplink Partner in the UK, discusses the drivers that helps businesses decide between a DIY or a managed SD WAN.

The Ninja’s View

The ability of SD WAN systems to automatically and proactively take network decisions, sometimes make people think that there is no need for a network management service. The comparison SAS makes with self driving cars is valid. Even though there is no need for chauffeurs in future, it doesn’t mean that you no longer need he garage, the mechanic, the spares supplier, the breakdown company, the recovery truck and the body shop. Similar to SD WAN services, there is still a need to manage the underlying network infrastructure.
