SD-WAN technology has matured to reach large-scale deployments in multiple industries. During the ONUG conference in fall 2016, multiple Viptela customers came together to discuss their SD-WAN strategy and solution execution. The analyst duo, Greg Ferro and Ethan Banks, of Packet Pushers had an in-depth discussion with three enterprises to understand their technical and business reasons for the migration. They also uncovered the operational due diligence needed for migrating from MPLS to SD-WAN.
- Feature requirements for an Enterprise Grade SD-WAN
- Addressing Healthcare with a comprehensive security framework
- Achieving SLAs on critical traffic with a hybrid infrastructure
- Traffic engineering based on traffic type and link quality
- Seamless LTE integration with MPLS and Broadband
- Global policy enforcement with centralized management
- Utilizing End to end network segmentation reducing network attack surface
- Service chaining for flexible security and policy
