SD-WAN provides enterprises with a programmable, evolvable and lower-cost alternative to Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS); while for communications service providers (CSPs), SD-WAN brings the opportunity to target new market segments and differentiate their service offering.
SD-WAN is still very much an emerging technology, and multiple implementation and monetization questions remain outstanding.
In this webinar the speakers will detail the technical factors that must be addressed to achieve a successful SD-WAN implementation. Areas relevant to the discussion include security, orchestration, MPLS integration, network management and their linkage to customer requirements.
To fully capture the impact of these factors, this webinar presents key findings from a major survey created by Heavy Reading in collaboration with Juniper Networks.
