SD-WAN is poised to play a key role in the enterprise WAN market which is seeing a consolidation of diverse submarkets such as infrastructure, security, management, and monitoring. As is the case for any growing and evolving industry with a high total addressable market (TAM) potential, many vendors, both large and small, have come up with SD-WAN products and solutions. Standards are still evolving and solutions reflect the varying perspectives, strengths, and weaknesses of vendors. That has led to a fair bit of confusion about the solution spectrum. What and how should you evaluate an SD-WAN solution?

This webinar aims to clear some of that confusion. Starting with the problem statement and a brief history of various architectural approaches to-date, the webinar will delve into the design components of an SD-WAN system and its three traditional layers: management, control, and data. It will then talk about use cases from real deployments and cover topics such as traffic engineering/path control and failover.


This webinar is part of Software Defined Networking (SDN) roadmap and accessible with standard subscription
