The Viptela SD-WAN solution is an enterprise-grade WAN architecture overlay that authorizes digital and cloud transformation for enterprises.

It fully integrates routing, security, centralized policy, and orchestration into large-scale networks. It is a multi-tenant, cloud-delivered, highly automated, secure, scalable, and application-aware with analytics.

The Viptela SD-WAN is composed of separate orchestration, management, control, and data planes:
  • The orchestration plane assists in the automatic onboarding of the SD-WAN routers into the SD-WAN overlay.
  • The management plane is responsible for the central configuration and monitoring.
  • The control plane builds and maintains the network topology and decides on where traffic flows.
  • The data plane is responsible for forwarding packets based on decisions from the control plane.
