Moving from Software-defined to a Self-driving Wide Area Network
Kunal Jha, Regional Director, Silver Peak
Wide Area Network (WAN) connectivity has been a long, tenuous issue for companies, because traditional WAN architectures have a rigid nature, complexity, and high cost, making it more difficult for businesses to react effectively to market changes. For years, WAN connectivity was focused on remote branch offices, which rarely had the gravity to demand a better solution from headquarters IT; but with more cloud applications (which are being deployed outside of the data center), WAN architectures have come under greater scrutiny.
Today, SD-WAN is reshaping the branch network architecture. It offers a much more flexible approach to networking, allowing enterprises to combine and configure multiple network technologies, and yet ensure performance, improved security, and lower costs. This session explained how you can build a next-generation enterprise WAN.
