New for 2017: SD-WAN Services

There is a huge amount of interest in SD-WAN services due to the hype surrounding aspects such as cost saving, agility and cloud computing.

  • What is SD-WAN?
  • SD-WAN vs. MPLS
  • What you need to know about application traffic using public IP networks (the Internet)
  • The features of SD-WAN including QoS (Quality of Service) and Security
  • Why are cloud services forcing uptake of SD-WAN?
  • Why is Hybrid with SD-WAN typically the better architecture?
