How WAN Optimization Enhances Application Performance in an SD-WAN

A common misconception persists that SD-WAN reduces or eliminates the need for WAN optimization techniques. The reality is that SD-WAN and WAN optimization solve fundamentally different problems, and they are complementary when deployed in unison. This whitepaper explains how enterprises can overcome application and network latency performance problems by deploying a virtual instance of Aruba EdgeConnect SD-WAN appliance in the public cloud and enabling Aruba Boost WAN optimization.
