SD-WAN: Early Adopters Share Lessons Learned - Presenting Vendors & Customers: VeloCloud with Devcon; Citrix with The Watershed; Nuage with CCS Group; and Talari with Teleperformance

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Driven by the need for agility, cost reductions, and adoption of off-premises cloud services, the software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) rollout is underway, with 2015 live production deployments by early adopters providing a trail for others to follow. As SD-WAN “crosses the chasm,” moving from early adopters to mainstream buyers, decision makers must make important long-term choices about their WAN architectures. Four  enterprise customers and their vendors will share their experience deploying SD-WAN,  and provide suggestions for purchase-decision makers.

Vendors will introduce customers and provide a 1 slide summary after customer presents

  • VeloCloud with Devcon, Architecture, Engineering, Construction
  • Citrix with The Watershed, health care provider
  • Nuage with CCS Group, provides communications solutions and consulting services
  • Talari with Teleperformance, a contact center provider.
