This week our WAN-loving colleagues gathered across the pond for the 2017 WAN Summit London. We talked about the cloud, mpls, the needs of enterprise customers, implementing hybrid networks, and why SD-WAN is about more than just cost savings.
Our latest WAN Summit Singapore blended big ideas with real-world solutions as we heard from WAN experts across the globe.
In particular, there were some fantastic ideas shared for WAN managers in the midst of a hybrid WAN adoption. We cherry-picked some of our top tips/quotes/ideas from those who have done it all before (and lived to tell the tale). Watch 'em below.
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.
Autodesk, a 130-location multi-national software company, relies on the cloud to support many applications. This requires connectivity to the Azure, Office 365, and Amazon web services.
Until recently, all Autodesk locations relied on MPLS connectivity to a company data center.
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.
This week WAN enthusiasts met in San Jose to take a closer look at the market, IT trends, and new technologies. We're happy to report that our first-ever WAN Summit San Jose exceeded expectations, with all of the insightful case studies and panel discussions we've come to expect from the WAN Summit agenda.

As enterprises migrate to hybrid WANs, they also need to rethink security and monitoring.
A panel of experts offered their advice on these issues at April’s WAN Summit New York in a session titled WAN Monitoring and Security: Utilizing WAN Acceleration/Optimization, Cloud Security and Performance Data in the New Hybrid WAN.
