I am writing this for sales people who are transition from old MPLS networks into SD-WANs and need to understand the basic bullet point concepts with out a CCIE and NSE8 or equivalent level of brain surgery.

This isn’t meant to be a exhaustive explanation, this jut a quick and easy concepts introduction to understand the difference and key advantages of SD-WAN for Sales people only. If you want a Deep Dive, go do your CCIE.

  • Router
  • NTU
  • Fiber
  • MPSL – https://www.networkworld.com/article/2297171/network-security-mpls-explained.html
  • Firewall with integrated NTU
  • OSFP – Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) is a routing protocol for Internet Protocol (IP) networks. It uses a link state routing (LSR) algorithm and falls into the group of interior gateway protocols (IGPs), operating within a single autonomous system (AS).
  • BGP – Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is the postal service of the Internet. When someone drops a letter into a mailbox, the postal service processes that piece of mail and chooses a fast, efficient route to deliver that letter to its recipient. Similarly, when someone submits data across the Internet, BGP is responsible for looking at all of the available paths that data could travel and picking the best route, which usually means hopping between autonomous systems.
