WAN Redesign – Make the Network GREAT Again!

After eight years of subscribing to a vendor managed MPLS wide area network, it became obvious that OUR best interests were not being served. Complexity, costs, inflexibility and extended downtime led us to reevaluate our network design. With the industry a-buzz with SD WAN offerings, we evaluated several vendors and eventually decided to deploy a hybrid SD WAN solution. This overview of our WAN Redesign Project will hopefully spark interest and questions to make this NITA session informative, beneficial, and enjoyable.
