What is Cisco Intelligent WAN?

Connectivity By: Anne Kirby

Cisco® Intelligent WAN (IWAN) is a comprehensive set of traffic control and security features for wide-area networks that have been integrated into Cisco branch-office routers. Leverage IWAN’s complete and cost-effective framework to reduce IT operating costs while maintaining high-performance functionality, accessibility and support. A hybrid WAN architecture, use IWAN to:


  • Increase the value of existing WAN investment
  • Improve WAN bandwidth through cost-effective internet transport
  • Limit operational complexity through IT consolidation
  • Converge multiple network functions through a point solution
  • Deliver intelligent, accessible end-user experience


The IWAN application delivers software-defined networking through a centralized index, transmitting the same accessibility, efficiency and security you’d expect from a traditional WAN network.

“With the advent of globalization, WANS have become a major artery for communication between remote offices and customers in any corner of the world,” reports Cisco. “IWAN enables organizations to deliver an uncompromised experience over any connection. With Cisco IWAN IT organizations can provide even more bandwidth to their branch office connections by using less experience WAN transport options without affecting performance, security, or reliability.”
