Our friends at the WAN Summit are gearing up to welcome the WAN community back to their annual London summit. It's all happening live and in-person on September 28 in Londontown.
It's time to talk about the office.
On Tuesday, September 14, TeleGeography's WAN Forum Team is doing another Deep Dive. This time, we're bringing data on corporate plans for returning to the workplace. We'll use this info as background to discuss how WAN & IT infrastructure managers can think about the underlay.
As we dig into technical standards and definitions, MEF has come up several times on this show. It was only a matter of time before we put them in the hot seat.
Who here has been keeping up with season 2 of the WAN Manager Podcast? If you haven't been listening, there's no time like the present to catch up.
We collected five stellar first-person stories from the WAN managers who have popped by the pod over the last year. These experts relate their perspectives on everything from security to SD-WAN adoption, network transformation, and MPLS.
Keep scrolling to take in their use cases. And head over here to find all of our recent episodes.
We wanted to pop by and share a few summer stories that our team has been reading lately.
We suggest you start with the Foreign Policy number we linked below. This piece prods at the geography of digitalization—more specifically, the "systemic vulnerabilities across public and private networks and dangerous weaknesses in supply chains."
Listeners know that we've covered middle mile and NaaS on this show. And we've touched on the various companies that are emerging around these issues. Today we're getting extra perspective from one of those companies.
When TeleGeography started tracking the SD-WAN market in 2017, we found dozens of vendors with a service they were calling "SD-WAN." But are all of these services created equal? What does it take for your solution to qualify as SD-WAN?
Are you like the (approximately) half of our survey respondents who have not yet adopted SD-WAN? Or perhaps you're in the midst of deployment and want to know what to look out for. Or maybe you're working out whether or not to keep MPLS?
Have you seen an $8 billion figure floating around the internet over the last week? Specifically that we could see $8 billion in new cable investments over the next three years?
It's true—and you can explore our 2021 submarine cable map to see what that's about.
Today we're living on the edge!
Whether we're talking security and SASE, NaaS, or cloud computing—or many other topics, honestly—edge networks and edge computing are likely to make it into the conversation.
