Hybrid WAN Connectivity with an SDN Twist

Featuring Ivan Pepelnjak & Khalid Raza

Industry heavyweights Ivan Pepelnjak and Khalid Raza look back on the old times when they had spent countless hours discussing hybrid WAN designs using a random combination of DMVPN, IPsec, PfR, and routing protocols like OSPF, EIGRP and BGP. They discuss the elegance of today's SDN-based architectures and why SD-WAN will emerge to finally solve many of the WAN problems.
