The Management Costs of SD-WAN
Another major component of the SD-WAN price list is the management costs. These are also referred to as maintenance costs. While maintenance is an issue with any branch of IT, SD-WAN is much easier to maintain than outdated alternatives. Your team should be able to handle many of the maintenance tasks on a SD-WAN system. While there are going to be a few maintenance tasks that come up from time to time, you do not necessarily have to pay for a managed solution. If your company is large, has a lot of remote demands, and is spread out over a large location, then you might still want to outsource its management to a specialized third-party; however, this is up to you. Because there are fewer maintenance tasks with any SD-WAN set up, this is just another way that SD-WAN offers an opportunity for cost-savings.
