SD-WAN offers organizations the chance to reduce networking costs, gain application control and potentially improve customer retention. But the real benefits can only be achieved if it is deployed as software on an open platform.
In this presentation, Prayson Pate will explain why SD-WAN should fit into a cloud-centric architecture, why it should be treated like a set of network functions rather than a standalone application and how it can be integrated with universal CPE platforms.
