Citrix SD-WAN

Citrix SD-WAN license options

There are three Citrix SD-WAN Editions each with a different set or subset of SD-WAN features. The type of license you install determines the platform edition - Standard Edition, WANOP, and Premium Edition appliances.


When installing and applying a license, make sure that your specific appliance supports the SD-WAN appliance edition you want to enable, and that you have the correct software version available.
