SD-WAN: Hype or Not?

Software-defined wide area networks (SD-WAN) offer a new approach—an intelligent and intuitive way to design, deploy, and manage distributed networks for the digital enterprise. We all know the need for SD-WAN, yet the more one learns about it, the more convoluted it becomes. This 4-part video series produced jointly by SiliconANGLE and Riverbed clears the air with:

  • Real answers about SD-WAN—what it is, the problems it solves, and why your business needs it;
  • A close-up look at how SD-WAN actually works;
  • Considerations and guidelines for a successful SD-WAN deployment.
The Future of Networking

Getting Started with SD-WAN

Episode 3

By 2020, according to Gartner, only 30% of network operations teams will use the command line interface (CLI) as their primary interface, down from 85% at YE16. So, does that mean you should get rid of your routers today? Of course not, but it does mean you need a plan of action—a set of practical steps that will take your business to the promised land of SD-WAN. In this SiliconANGLE video interview, Riverbed CTO Hansang Bae, together with Riverbed Deputy CTO Frank Lyonnet, discuss the migration path to SD-WAN, deployment tips for a successful transition, and next steps to take for common use cases.
