SD-WAN Resources


Packet Pushers– Live From New York at ONUG Fall 2016

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.

Live From New York: Network architects talk SD-WAN

The Packet Pushers duo of Greg Ferro and Ethan Banks interview network and security architects from three Fortune-500 enterprises who are in process of testing and deploying SD-WAN in large scale. The discussion covers the importance of transport-agnostic WAN, centralized management, visibility and application-aware routing. And how these enterprises will benefit from the SD-WAN architecture.

Software Defined WAN on Packet Pushers

As SDN gains rapid traction, SD-WAN is emerging as the leading use-case. Aging WAN architectures are severely impacting enterprise applications; WAN optimization can only address a short-term capacity problem. Famed analysts Greg Ferro and Ethan Banks dig deeper into the real solutions to solve the bigger problems of circuit costs, network rigidity and poor cloud performance.

Hybrid Wan Connectivity with an SDN Twist

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.
