The rate of SD-WAN adoption is continuing to rise, and it’s quickly becoming ubiquitous. In an era of distributed environments - applications, employees, cloud, Edge and data centers among them - navigating network complexity is an increasingly common challenge. Recently, ESG research found that 54% of survey respondents felt that network complexity was restraining both operational efficiency and improved user experiences..
With two routes to deploying SD-WAN, Do It Yourself (DIY) and via Managed Service Providers (MSP), IT leaders must understand which approach will more effectively manage their deployments. In this 45-minute webinar, ESG Principal Analyst Bob Laliberte and Juniper Networks’ Senior Director of Product Management, Kevin Klett, can help provide guidance. They'll be sharing and debating the pros and cons of both the DIY and MSP approaches and helping network teams gain the confidence to make the right decision.
Discussion points will include:
- The 5 key characteristics of an MSP or DIY SD-WAN deployment
- The pros and cons of both approaches and what to look for in each solution
- The network performance and operational efficiencies that each route can deliver
- Insights from real world businesses who have deployed SD-WAN by DIY and MSP
- And more
