WAN Summit

Understanding WAN Design and Managed Services in the Age of SD-WAN

There’s been huge growth in corporate internet traffic in the last seven years.

We’ve seen the adoption of public cloud and software-as-a-service applications—and the subsequent migration of business applications to the public cloud.

During our recent WAN Summit Singapore, Orange Business Services (OBS) provided a peek behind the curtain of enterprise SD-WAN rollouts in this increasingly internet-centric environment.

Detmold Sees Ongoing Benefits of 2016 SD-WAN Deployment

In 2015, SD-WAN was not the phenomenon that it is today. But David Stork, IT infrastructure manager for multi-national manufacturer Detmold Group, was motivated to explore the then-emerging technology way back when.

It all started after he asked his MPLS provider about an upgrade.

BYOD is Shifting the Security Perimeter for WAN Managers

Of all of the areas covered by the WAN Summit, cyber security has got to be one of the hottest topics.

Meet the WAN Exchange at MEF18

With 1,000 attendees from more than 275 companies, MEF18 is a major networking event for communication and cloud service providers, enterprises, government organizations, network technology suppliers, and others.

Even better, this year the Downtown Los Angeles event will feature the WAN Exchange, a bite-sized showcase of our WAN Summit conference series.

SD-WAN Full Mesh Capabilities Were a Big Draw for Henkel

Consumer products company Henkel converted a portion of its global network, primarily in Asia, to SD-WAN.

What sold them on the switch? SD-WAN’s ability to support full mesh capability and application-based routing were big selling points.

Five Insights from Enterprises at WAN Summit Frankfurt

Last month the WAN Summit came to Frankfurt for the first time. This inaugural event brought with it conversations about SD-WAN selection and implementation, cloud-based applications, and sourcing local access and broadband.

We were also thrilled to get feedback from our German audience about how they’re managing their networks, implementing SD-WAN, and juggling MPLS.

Below are five new findings from enterprise attendees at the Frankfurt summit. (For comparison, check out what we learned from our NY audience earlier this year.)

Upcoming Webinar: A Global SD-WAN Client's Journey

We probably don't need to tell you that our 2018 WAN Summit Singapore will feature more enterprise case studies. Previously, companies like CargillDHL, and Volex have used our Singapore summit to provide a first-hand look at how some of the region's largest enterprises manage their networks.

In that spirit, we'll be giving everyone a taste of our 2018 Singapore Summit next Wednesday, August 8. Join us for a webinar all about one client's global SD-WAN journey.

Uptime Requirements Drive BorgWarner’s Migration to SD-WAN

There were several drivers behind BorgWarner’s decision to adopt SD-WAN, but perhaps the most important was that they “needed multiple avenues to keep manufacturing sites up and running,” according to Mark Williams, senior information technology manager for the company.

Upcoming Webinar: The Financial Impact of Hybrid WAN Deployment

A recent WAN Summit survey found that cutting costs is the number two most important driver for SD-WAN deployment after improving performance.

Combinations of hybrid WANs and SD-WAN promise to double bandwidth while reducing Mbit prices by up to 50 percent.

But how much of this is achievable?

We're Surveying WAN Managers Across the Globe. Join us and Enjoy Free Access to Our Findings.

We've got an exciting project brewing here at TeleGeography.

We're conducting a brief survey of enterprise WAN managers across the globe and across different verticals. Ultimately, we're hoping to help our readers compare their networks—and future plans for their networks—to that of their peers.
