Rightsizing the WAN for the Hybrid Workforce

Presented by

Elizabeth Thorne, Research Analyst, Enterprise Networks, TeleGeography

About this talk

Remote work is likely to continue and become integrated into corporate life across many industries. What will that look like in reality? What are the ramifications for securing and architecting the underlay? This talk will explore insights on how network professionals are approaching SASE/ZTS strategies in their networks from TeleGeography's WAN Manager Survey. We will then use that as background for examining different underlay configurations to maximize network performance and cost savings in the hybrid work era. Topics this presentation will cover: • How are real WAN managers currently approaching SASE/ZTS? • What are the greatest challenges with adopting SASE/ZTS in a brownfield environment? • How is the mix of enterprise access products changing? Are MPLS and DIA prices converging? • How does the TCO for an SD-WAN enabled network change based on the underlay products and bandwidth?
