SD-WAN platform models and software packages

This section provides information about downloading the Citrix SD-WAN software packages.

Note

Before you download the software, you must obtain and register a Citrix SD-WAN software license. For information, please see Licensing.

An SD-WAN appliance package contains the SD-WAN software package for a particular appliance model bundled with a specific SD-WAN configuration package. The two packages are bundled together and distributed to the clients by using the Change Management wizard in the Management Web Interface running on the Master Control Node (MCN).

If this is an initial installation, you must manually upload, stage, and activate the appropriate appliance package on each of the client appliances that reside in your SD-WAN network. If you are updating the configuration for an existing SD-WAN deployment, the MCN automatically distributes and activates the appropriate appliance package on each of the existing clients, when the virtual paths to the clients become operational.

Download the software packages

There is a different NetScaler SD-WAN software package for each appliance model. You need to download the appropriate software package for each appliance model you want to include in your network.
