SD-WAN Managed Services: Terminology, Use Cases, Challenges and MEF Work

Presented by

Stan Hubbard - MEF; Peter Agnew - Colt; Ralph Santitoro - Fujitsu Network Communications

About this talk

SD-WANs have become very popular because they solve current business challenges while leveraging new SDN, NFV, orchestration and cloud technologies. Enterprises have been building SD-WANs for several years but prefer to have a service provider manage the service for them rather than build and operate it themselves. Service providers are challenged to quickly introduce new SD-WAN managed services due to the lack of standardization of service definitions and architectures. Today, SD-WANs come in all types and flavors. In this webinar, you will learn about the MEF's SD-WAN standardization work and different use cases from the perspective of two SD-WAN managed service providers (MSPs) with different delivery models. The webinar will discuss the market drivers and business benefits for SD-WAN managed services and how MEF standardization of SD-WAN services using the LSO reference architecture could address current operational challenges to accelerate service delivery.
