A shift to hybrid WAN could yield substantial savings, even though it would be a complex undertaking for the global logistics company DHL, explained Head of Network Architecture Michael Becerra in a presentation at WAN Summit Singapore.

WAN Summit case studies have always highlighted unique stories from a broad range of industries.
They’ve spanned from software companies moving away from MPLS to financial management firms retooling their network architecture.
In San Jose, delegates got an inside look at how one manufacturing company, Trinity Industries, made their big switch to SD-WAN care of Network Manager Jeremiah Ginn.
One thing that Local Access Pricing Service subscribers get a feel for is how many truly local factors drive pricing for metro access services.
The number of competing access suppliers, physical infrastructure deployed, technologies used, local or national regulatory regimes, and even customer spend contribute to price variation. Prices differ not only by country and city, but in many cases even by individual building.
More bandwidth. Better performance. More flexibility.
We’ve been accustomed to thinking of these as trade-offs when it comes to wide area networking (WAN). However, enterprises are increasingly maximizing all three factors, as a panel at WAN Summit San Jose illustrated.
As a WAN manager, how do you ensure your business has an available, reliable, and secure network when the nature of the workplace is always changing?
Digital transformation – which Interoute CTO Matthew Finnie defines as “using technology to get closer to the market and supply chain” – is becoming an important initiative for enterprises.
And just like that, our first WAN Summit Singapore is in the books.
While the potential benefits of incorporating software defined wide area networking (SD-WAN) are clear, there is no single migration path. At the WAN Summit New York, Intuit Principal Network Architect Manish Gupta offers lessons from his organization's experiences adopting SD-WAN and how they transformed their network architecture. Or in Gupta's own words: “I think we know why we’re moving there... But the question is: How are we getting there?”
Sensata Technologies is one of those ultra successful, market leading companies you seldom hear much about. With annual revenues topping $3 billion, Sensata manufactures sensor products which go into cars, aircraft, air-conditioning systems, mobile phones and more. Sensata began updating its wide area network across its 50 plus sites around the world about 18 months ago, in order to maximize the gains from the introduction of technologies like unified communications services. Mark DeLorenzo, Sensata’s senior director of technology services, was on hand at the WAN Summit New York earlier this year to explain the company’s approach.
