Understanding the Business Value of a Modern WAN Architecture (SD-WAN)

For many organizations, the wide area network (WAN) infrastructure that connects an enterprise’s remote and branch offices has not changed for decades. However, as application are rapidly moving to the cloud ( SaaS and IaaS), the WAN needs to evolve in response.

Bob Laliberte, Senior Analyst with ESG, Inc., will explore the challenges many organizations face with legacy WAN environments, illustrate why a new solution is needed and highlight the business value of rearchitecting with SD-WAN. This will include reviewing customer examples and a TCO model to demonstrate the value to your business. Organizations will learn how SD-WAN provides a combination of pure economic benefits as well as agility and flexibility to help organizations be successful.

  • Future-proof your Network and Business with SD-WAN Jul 30 2019 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Anil Rao, Industry Analyst at Analysys Mason & Tony Banuelos, Product Line Manager at VeloCloud, now part of VMware
    Traditional WANs cannot keep pace with the huge amount of data and bandwidth required by apps, devices, and the cloud. Adopting a software-defined approach to WAN enables businesses to accelerate the adoption and delivery of new services, dramatically improve network performance, and reduce costs.

    Join VMware’s live webinar to explore SD-WAN architectures that provide secure connectivity from the core to the network edge and enable service providers to deliver elastic bandwidth, advanced services and greater QoS to enterprise customers. We will also discuss how VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud and VMware Smart Assurance are the ideal solutions to drive the operational transformation that telcos need to thrive in the 5G era.

    Attendees will also learn how to:

    · Modernize your network while minimizing risk and disruption
    · Leverage SD-WAN to create new revenue opportunities and improve customer experience
    · Monitor and manage existing and new services for maximum operational efficiency
    · Guarantee SLA and QoS with automated, carrier-grade service assurance
  • Effective Network Monitoring and Visibility with VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud Jul 24 2019 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Jaspreet Bhatia & Tony Banuelos, Product Management at VeloCloud, now part of VMware
    IT admin teams require their SD-WAN networks have monitoring and visibility capabilities that provide insight into network performance in order to proactively address instability or service issues. Service disruptions may be due to bandwidth capacity issues at a site that has outgrown the provisioned bandwidth or a carrier SLA not meeting its requirements (e.g. high latency or packet loss). There are other scenarios that can cause a network to be degraded and an IT team needs to have visibility into the network in order to troubleshoot and fix. VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud is the leader in SD-WAN technology that enables businesses to onboard cloud-based services reliably, connect remote sites efficiently and securely, lower their WAN connectivity costs, and maintain high SLA network services across broadband, wireless or private networks.

    Join our webinar to learn about the current network monitoring and visibility capabilities of VMware SD-WAN. We will also provide an overview of alerting capabilities and future enhancements related to native path visibility, enterprise dashboards, and partner integrations to enhance the network visibility and analytics experience.

  • 5 Ways VMware SD-WAN Enables Network Transformation Recorded: Jun 26 2019 59 mins
    Ramnath Shenai, Senior Technical Product Manager at VeloCloud, now part of VMware
    Traditional WAN was built with the assumption that all applications would be hosted at a centralized on-premises data center. In this model, traffic forwarding was based on destination IP. Enterprises today are migrating slowly but steadily to cloud-based applications, either in the form of IaaS or SaaS. With this dramatic shift in where the applications reside, organizations must reevaluate their approach to WAN architecture and pursue a solution that ensures predictable application performance leading to a network transformation.

    SD-WAN helps solve this challenge and much more. VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud provides enterprises with the ability to leverage Internet links to connect to the Cloud both public and SaaS, instead of backhauling that traffic to a data center. Some applications will still reside in the data center, so businesses need application visibility at the edges and application-based traffic forwarding to their respective destinations.

    This webinar will explore multiple SD-WAN use cases for enterprises looking to begin their SD-WAN journey and outline the unique features and benefits VMware SD-WAN provides.
  • Key Differentiators of an SD-WAN Market Leader Recorded: Jun 12 2019 57 mins

This webinar will walk through the unique features of VMware SD-WAN that have contributed to its status as a recognized leader in this space. There are more than 60 vendors who claim to sell SD-WAN, but when evaluating a solution, it’s important to look for one that caters to a variety of use cases and performs well in scaled environments. Additionally, the majority of SD-WAN deployments are brownfield and no customer wants to rip and replace their current infrastructure. How does VMware SD-WAN solve these customer concerns? Come join us to find out.
  • SD-WAN as an IoT Enabler Recorded: Jun 6 2019 50 mins
    Kishan Ramaswamy, Product Marketing Manager at VeloCloud, now part of VMware
    According to Forbes, IoT is forecasted to have 50-75% of enterprise data generated at the network edge by the year 2020; and at the same time, 83% of enterprise workload will be in the cloud by 2020. The WAN network will become more important in delivering these services to ensure high quality application performance and seamless operational technology (OT). This session will examine how SD-WAN directly enables IoT use cases by prioritizing business-critical applications, ensuring cost savings with zero-touch deployments and usage of internet links, and much more.
  • The Evolution of SD-WAN as a Platform Recorded: Jun 5 2019 50 mins
    Steve Woo, Senior Director of Product Management at VeloCloud, now part of VMware
    Enterprises are transforming their business to stay competitive in today’s rapidly changing digital world and IT must keep pace with these evolving business requirements. Enterprise WAN is no exception--enterprise IT must transform the WAN edge to be the cloud and compute edge, to ensure end-to-end application performance and continuity, and to do all of this and more in an agile, scalable, secure and cost-effective fashion.

    SD-WAN has emerged as the enabler of WAN transformation. It has quickly evolved in a few short years from a connectivity infrastructure to a services platform. An ideal SD-WAN platform must encompass built-in and extensible security, support services such as analytics and application performance monitoring, an optimized migration path to a hybrid/multi-cloud strategy, and much more.

    Join this webinar to learn more about the vision and evolution of SD-WAN as a platform, and why VMware is the undisputed leader to deliver this vision. Steve Woo, senior director of product and co-founder of VeloCloud, now part of VMware, will share his insights based on years of experience in the SD-WAN space.
