About this talk

Next-Generation Networking [Ep.5]: The New WAN Economics Enterprise WAN traffic patterns are shifting. The application mix is changing. And the WAN is becoming core to digital transformation (and to resilience in the post-COVID-19 era). The two fundamental questions that network and telecom managers must answer right now are these: How much should I be spending on my WAN to achieve measurable success, and what services and solutions deliver the greatest bang for the buck (in terms of quantitative success per dollars invested)? This webinar shares the findings of the 2020-2021 Next Generation Networks research study and compares a cost analysis of solutions such as: *WAN Cloud Exchanges (WAN-CX) * Direct Cloud Connect (DCC) * MPLS * Carrier Ethernet * SD-WAN * Business and Broadband Internet * Fiber and wavelength services We compare the network spend by users of solutions and services from providers such as AT&T, Centurylink, Cisco, Citrix, Comcast, Juniper, Oracle/Talari, VMWare Velocloud, Verizon and others. And we correlate the spend and provider with success overall.
