WAN Summit

By Jayne MillerDec 29, 2016


We've already shared a few of our favorite blog posts from 2016. But there's something else from 2016 worthy of a look back: the outstanding WAN Summit presentations we were treated to throughout the year.

This year we ventured to New York, Singapore, and London to spark ideas, gain new perspectives, and initiate conversations with suppliers, customers, and peers about all things WAN.

Here's a taste of what was on the conference program in 2016.

Designing and Transitioning to Intuit’s Hybrid WAN

While the potential benefits of incorporating SD-WAN are clear, there is no single migration path. At WAN Summit New York, Intuit Principal Network Architect Manish Gupta offered lessons from his organization's experiences adopting SD-WAN, detailing how they transformed their network architecture.

In Gupta's own words: “I think we know why we’re moving there...but the question is: How are we getting there?”
