Last week we made our way back to Singapore for our second-ever WAN Summit in the region. We brought new case studies, fresh hybrid WAN trends, and a blend of first-time panelists and WAN Summit veterans, making for a packed two days.
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.

Enterprise demand for bandwidth is climbing. (Take VWR’s Sen Chokkan, who says he’s seen bandwidth use increase 10 percent each month.) Offices are leaning more on applications and customers are expecting more cloud-based services.
The recent State of the WAN report by Aryaka, an SD-WAN company, underscored just how much enterprise traffic has exploded—and where.
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?
The budget-conscious WAN managers of the world know that connectivity costs change all the time. During WAN Summit New York in April, our own Michael Bisaha shared a few ideas with attendees for staying on top of these ever-changing expenses.
