Spotlight on EMEA: Demystifying SD-WAN, SDN, NFV, and VNF

Many Enterprises in EMEA are evaluating, piloting or migrating to SD-WAN. As they navigate the market they are encountering a myriad of technology terms, options and choices. During research and solution evaluations, Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN), Software-Defined Network (SDN), Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and Virtual Network Function (VNF) are concepts that come up frequently and often cause confusion.

This webinar will demystify these concepts, give you a detailed explanation of each and clarify the differences. Most importantly, you will learn which of these technologies are the best fit for your Enterprise to build the most scalable, high-performing, and secure wide area network - especially, in the EMEA region.

  • VMware SD-WAN is Transforming the Retail Industry Recorded: Nov 13 2019 55 mins
    Kishan Ramaswamy, Product Marketing Manager at VeloCloud, now part of VMware
    The retail environment is changing. Years ago, retail marketing was focused on getting people into stores. Now retailers are tasked with leading people into the store, cross-promoting to them inside the store, following them via multimedia channels, and being there any time and anywhere the buyer might decide to purchase. Technology is at the forefront of this transformation and IT teams are tasked with making this transformation a reality. The role of technology in retail is shifting from a cost-center to a profit center.

    Retail networks of today must support an increasing number of connected devices, video, images, voice, credit card data and payments processing, and each must be treated differently, such as separating PCI traffic from guest Wi-Fi from voice.

    Join this webinar to learn how VMware SD-WAN™ by VeloCloud® can address:

    •Segmentation as it relates to SD-WAN
    •Why segmentation matters in retail
    •Providing five 9s uptime

In this webinar, industry analyst and Principal Analyst at Doyle Research, Lee Doyle, shares his perspective on the accelerated evolution of SD-WAN to support changing business requirements including: multi- and hybrid cloud, client-to-cloud-to-container, native advanced security, and hyperscale.
  • Know, Understand, Execute: Network Monitoring and Analytics with SD-WAN Recorded: Oct 23 2019 49 mins
    Jaspreet Bhatia & Tony Banuelos, Product Management at VeloCloud, now part of VMware
    How do you monitor your network to make sure applications are using the best path possible, detect when a site may need bandwidth capacity upgrades, or detect abnormal traffic behavior? Most network configurations are unable to support end-to-end visibility, monitoring, and management of data traffic, UCaaS applications, or cloud-routed content. SD-WAN changes all that by providing optimized paths to cloud applications and performance assurance using in-depth network monitoring and analytics that allows you to make better decisions. In this session, find out how VMware SD-WAN collects and utilizes real-time network data to report on application flows, end-to-end path visibility, network impairments and abnormal network condition detection.
  • Protecting Branch SD-WAN Internet Connections to the Cloud from Cyber-Attacks Recorded: Oct 15 2019 56 mins
    Aviv Abramovich, Head of Security Services Product Management at Check Point
    As enterprises move their branch applications to the cloud, they are adopting Software Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN) to intelligently route traffic directly to the internet without passing it through the datacenter.
