Today’s digitally-driven business model, the rapid adoption of cloud services and shifting traffic patterns are causing IT professionals to re-evaluate WAN architecture. In parallel, there is increasing pressure on enterprise IT to enhance business agility by bringing new sites and new applications online more quickly.
Software-defined Wide Area Networks (SD-WAN) provide an entirely new, business-driven approach to the WAN. They enable active, secure use of multiple forms of transport services, including broadband, to connect users to applications – wherever they reside. This not only improves application performance but also increases resiliency. Centralized orchestration and zero-touch provisioning greatly simplify the tasks of deploying new sites or applications, often eliminating the requirement to send IT experts out to branch locations.
This webinar will reveal how an advanced business-driven SD-WAN can become a strategic accelerant for an enterprise’s digital transformation initiatives. You will learn how Gerresheimer, a global manufacturer of specialty glass products, deployed the Silver Peak EdgeConnect SD-WAN platform to augment MPLS with lower cost, high speed broadband services to achieve a 2x to 3x increase in application performance while lowering overall bandwidth costs. Greg Taylor, Head of IT Infrastructure, will describe how adopting a business-driven SD-WAN delivers a better, more predictable and consistent quality of experience for Gerresheimer employees around the world.
