How do IoT sensors intersect with SD-WAN?

This is where IoT must rely on new technologies, like software-defined WAN (SD-WAN). The overall concept behind SD-WAN is to combine two or more WAN links with artificial intelligence, so data will traverse the optimal path toward its final destination. Network administrators primarily use a combination of internet broadband links and private carrier links, like […]
