Expectations - and Surprises - of an SD-WAN Deployment

August 07, 2020

The Software Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) infrastructure market is poised for massive growth. According to a June 2020 Graphical Research growth forecast report, North America SD-WAN Market by Component, the SD-WAN market is set to exceed $5 billion by 2025, a 55% CAGR from 2019-2025. Between the need to support SaaS apps and multi- and hybrid-cloud usage to managing multiple connection types across WANs to improve application performance and end-user experience, SD-WAN deployments will continue to grow.

But what does SD-WAN success look like? In the January 2019 webinar, “The Road to Digital Transformation: Putting the Pedal to the Metal,” we discussed the steps Philadelphia Federal Credit Union (PFCU) took in moving from a legacy MPLS platform to the digital experience, including SD-WAN deployment.

Now, we’re bringing you “Expectations—and Surprises—of an SD-WAN Deployment,” a webinar from Comcast Business Services. Our panelists discuss the successes and challenges of PFCU’s SD-WAN deployment over the year since its installation and provide examples of how SD-WAN has transformed the business, making it more agile and flexible.

Viewers will learn:

  • How this deployment has changed PFCU’s underlay network
  • How SD-WAN’s digital tools are providing greater visibility and control
  • The IT support shifts that have taken place and the managed services being leveraged
  • The ways in which expectations have been underdelivered on, met, or exceeded
  • How the network responded to the immediate needs created by COVID-19 (e.g., rapidly scaling remote activity)
  • What to expect from software defined networks in the future

Watch the webinar replay and see how SD-WAN is being used to embrace change.
