May 02, 2019

According to Futuriom’s 2018 SD-WAN Growth Outlook, produced in October 2018, the market for SD-WAN tools and network-as-a-service (NaaS) revenue should reach $1.5 billion this year and $2.5 billion by 2021. Clearly, adoption is on the upswing. Yet, for all its mainstream appeal, there remain several myths about what SD-WAN is—and what it isn’t.

SD-WAN: Myths and Realities,” a webinar from Comcast Business helps dispel some of the key misconceptions about the infrastructure, budget, and other impacts of SD-WAN. In this webinar, our expert panelists will bust five core myths, while offering a valuable reality check.

The myths include that SD-WAN is:

  1. Just a router upgrade
  2. All about killing MPLS
  3. Focused only on reducing telecom spend
  4. A panacea for all network problem
  5. Only provided by the telecommunication companies
