Kevin Klett, Vice President, Product Marketing, 128 Technology

Network complexity not only increases IT costs, but can also create network fragility and security risks. Recent approaches to reducing network complexity through Software Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN) offer some short-term relief, but are still largely based on decades-old network paradigms that only create more complexity in the long run.

Session Smart Networking is different. Session Smart networks can by truly simplify the network, as well as provide a breadth of SD-WAN capabilities – including application visibility, software-define branches, multi-path routing and network segmentation. As a result, organizations using a Session Smart approach can realize breakthrough gains in performance, agility, security and scale.

In this webinar, 128 Technology and Light Reading will discuss the benefits of session-smart routers in SD-WAN deployments, which include:

  • A tunnel-free architecture that eliminates the 20% to 30% bandwidth tax incurred by overlay encapsulation and enables full mesh any-to-any routing for services.
  • A Zero Trust Security model operating on a "deny-all" routing fabric that transforms any IP network into a distributed network firewall, providing dynamic encryption, per-hop authentication and global access control.
  • The ability for the network to make intelligent, application-specific decisions regarding network optimization whenever problems occur.

Live Digital Audio

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
