ORLANDO, Fla. -- Spectrum Enterprise, a part of Charter Communications (NASDQ: CHTR), today announced the details of its unique approach to Hybrid Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) solutions and is demonstrating its next-generation solution in a networking proof of concept (PoC) at the fourth annual Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) global conference.

The Spectrum Enterprise Hybrid SD-WAN solution will enable businesses to leverage the performance of Ethernet, the ubiquity of Internet connectivity and the flexibility of SD-WAN to create Hybrid WANs by stitching together native Ethernet WANs and Internet-based SD-WAN connections. As a result, businesses can easily establish, modify or expand their WAN or transition away from their legacy network services. With the Spectrum Enterprise Hybrid SD-WAN solution, businesses will be able to:

• Overlay an SD-WAN solution over any access technology for new locations or over their existing WAN;

• Extend their current native Ethernet WAN by rapidly stitching in remote sites using SD-WAN over Internet access;

• Build a network of their choice by choosing the ideal connectivity option on a per-site basis and based on unique needs for each site.

“As businesses go through digital transformations, their networking needs evolve to require dynamic services that provide visibility and control,” said Greg King, Senior Vice President, Product, Marketing and Strategy for Spectrum Enterprise. “Our Hybrid SD-WAN strategy offers choice and flexibility to help our clients address their individual networking needs.”

The Spectrum Enterprise Hybrid SD-WAN solution will also provide a number of software-controlled features including:

• A client portal to manage visibility and control over the entire service end-to-end;

• Application-level use of business policies at each site for routing traffic;

• Pre-defined network security templates and policies;

• Automation of connectivity to the cloud.

Spectrum Enterprise is targeting existing clients with complex networking needs to participate in the field trials.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
