Software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN) is a hot topic. It’s a way for companies to cut their monthly financial outlay but potentially incur greater on-going support costs. In addition, SD-WAN may provide additional control and agility for those enterprises.
For service providers, it’s a threat to their traditional virtual private network (VPN) offering but allows them to supply a more dynamic network solution. SD-WAN 2.0, the latest version of the technology, can provide a happy medium, allowing service providers to deliver cheaper and more dynamic network solutions to enterprises.
At SDN & OpenFlow World Congress, Prayson Pate will discuss how the SD-WAN 2.0 can build on industry knowledge of network functions virtualization (NFV), software-defined networking (SDN) and SD-WAN solutions to create more cost-effective, flexible and complete private networks.
