I find it interesting that the SD-WAN provides improved network visibility and control of apps, and is fully scalable, configurable and cost-efficient.

I find this part interesting: The SD-WAN Edge creates and terminates secured and encrypted tunnels over different types of wired or wireless underlay networks such as Broadband Internet, WiFi and LTE as well as DIA and MPLS core networks.

SD-WAN is an alternative and more dynamic approach to designing and deploying enterprise WAN solutions - providing greater network visibility and control. It aims to replace traditional branch routers with appliances that use virtualisation, application-level policies and network overlays to make several Broadband Internet links behave like a dedicated managed circuit.

Vodacom to implement SD-WAN?? That is amazing. According to Gartner Inc. only 30% of enterprises would use SD-WAN in 2019. This was predicted in 2015. Great to see that Vodacom is moving towards efficiency. They will have much more room to improve

Doing away with the "traditional branch routers" the less hardware required the better I'd say :)

The SD-WAN Edge also performs application-based QoS and security policy enforcement, application forwarding over one or more WAN connections and QoS performance measurements over each WAN to determine optimal path selection.

Makes the WAN more service-centric, with monitoring and management of traffic focusing on delivery of apps.

I like that it makes "the WAN more service-centric, with monitoring and management of traffic focusing on delivery of apps. "

Having to push and pull data across multiple apps, its sometimes difficult to monitor, but if they can provide that service. Will definitely be an option to use them.
