Topic: Navigating the SD-WAN Marketplace

Guests: Director of Business Development at LNK Group

Software-defined wide area network or SD-WAN is gaining momentum as a connectivity solution across the enterprise landscape. Many businesses with multiple locations and/or fast growth trajectories are seizing upon SD-WAN as an affordable, flexible and efficient way to connect sites and spin-up new locations.

However, the SD-WAN vendor market has quickly become overcrowded in response to the increase in enterprise adoption. New providers and disruptive new SD-WAN products and services continue to emerge, leaving IT leaders with an overwhelming array of choices.

In this Telecom Talk, Raj Lincoln from LNK Group and NEF’s Mike Murphy explore important topics including:

  • Defining SD-WAN and key terminology associated with the technology
  • The overarching benefits and challenges of SD-WAN
  • How to evaluate vendor and product options in an overcrowded market
