We've already shared a few of our favorite blog posts from 2016. But there's something else from 2016 worthy of a look back: the outstanding WAN Summit presentations we were treated to throughout the year.
Here's a taste of what was on the conference program in 2016.
Gate Group is probably the world’s largest airline catering company. VP of Infrastructure Services Garth Gray discusses how the organization struggled with their existing MPLS network and charted a business broadband hybrid WAN strategy.
Hybrid WANs that employ a combination of technologies - like MPLS and internet connectivity - have become increasingly popular as enterprise customers and service providers embrace the software-defined WAN. But what's really driving the big move to hybrid networks?
While the potential benefits of incorporating SD-WAN are clear, there is no single migration path. At WAN Summit New York, Intuit Principal Network Architect Manish Gupta offered lessons from his organization's experiences adopting SD-WAN, detailing how they transformed their network architecture.
In Gupta's own words: “I think we know why we’re moving there...but the question is: How are we getting there?”
When it comes to SD-WAN, some are taking a do-it-yourself approach. Others – including Volex – have opted to purchase SD-WAN from a network operator. This is their story.
A panel of experts from Telstra, Velocloud, Viptela, and everywhere in between tackle the evolution of the modern WAN in this presentation from WAN Summit Singapore.
Interoute's Matthew Finnie shares his experience using technology to support what he calls "digital transformation" during our WAN Summit London. Ultimately, Interoute sees its network and data center assets melding to become a “digital platform” that will help make enterprise customers more agile.
We always look forward to our WAN Summit case studies. These first-person accounts provide real-world advice from the WAN professionals who have seen it all. In this presentation from WAN Summit Singapore, Coevolve CEO Tim Sullivan walks through his biggest lessons learned.
