Cisco SD-WAN Previous Solutions

Solution Director at a comms service provider with 10,001+ employees
I've worked with a variety of other solutions in the past. They have their own approaches to the industry. Sophos, for example, approaches their solution from a security perspective. The main premise of the product is its ability to secure the network itself. Others have close relationships with VMware solutions that provide for an easy way to bind the applicable network with the network walls. In the near future, most will need to provide for UCTE, which will become a must-have for any solution. Fortinet does not have a UCTE itself, but it has a low segment and basic equipment that is really interesting because it is so cheap. Plus, it's not so difficult to add it in to complete another appliance. This is one thing that we sometimes use to expand security requirements while still being able to have specific SD-WAN equipment. View full review »

We've also worked with Fortinet. Cisco is better for larger enterprises and for telecom operators. However, Fortinet is a much cheaper solution in terms of pricing. Fortinet is also much easier to implement. Cisco implementations tend to be complicated. View full review »

We have also worked with Meraki SD-WAN, but the choice of solution depends on the customer's size and requirements. Meraki is for smaller clients. For example, Meraki only supports two landings, whereas Cisco supports more than that. View full review »

MPLS, P2P lines and multi-point VPN mesh. These were either too expensive or required too much operational overhead. View full review »
