Cities are embracing innovative applications to automate and optimize the operation of their underlying infrastructure and services, from street lighting and CCTV to air-quality sensors, traffic management and emergency services. By improving the performance of infrastructure and services, smart cities also improve citizens’ quality of life and foster higher economic growth.
This white paper describes the kind of network fabric needed to support the smart city and the wide deployment of IoT- and cloud-based applications. SD-WAN, an overlay SDN atop your existing WAN and other access networks, offers an affordable way to bring the agility, scalability and programmability to the network fabric. It enables the cost-effective and rapid deployment of IoT applications and simplifies the management of the network, the cloud and devices.
