I am an Information Technology Domain Network and Solutions Architect at a large utility company.
I am currently researching SD-WAN solutions. Is the network connection for an SD-WAN router the same as a network connection to a traditional router? They both employ an ethernet private line for access, is that correct?
Thank you for your help.

More information please!! Of course it's not the same type of solution, but if you're talking about infrastructure, yes it's the same, you just need a patch cable (copper or fiber) from your ISP router connected to your router's WAN IN port.Otherwise, if you're talking about capabilities, it's normal behavior of the whole network to become slower if your UTM server is not good enough and that depends on how big your current and future network need is, take note of that, it is the main concern that you should focus on.Personal advice for you; go with a hardware kind router, most of the time it is a better solution and cheaper one, maybe you just don't know yet about the correct one for you, please let me know if I was helpful.
I'm looking for a study (or a report) that can help me choose the best possible SD-WAN solution (features, cloud access, security, deployment, service chaining, etc.). I work at a university with 5K+ employees.
I searched but each time I find contradictory information. It will help me a lot if I have something in which there are the 3 solutions listed below:

@Diyaspino, all three are overpriced.
Depending on what are you looking for, you may look at Fortinet or even check the latest Sophos offering.
There is a number of different postings on SD-WAN in the last few years. Once people learned that SD-WAN is an old VPN with a new user interface, they moved to a new buzzword.
