The role of open source in your SD-WAN strategy

Sorell Slaymaker, Principal Analyst at TechVision Research and Amir Zmora, CEO of flexiWAN share their view on the path to SD-WAN, how market requirements change over time and the role of open source in supporting this change.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • How open source will lead to a de facto SD-WAN standard
  • Why service providers are choosing to resell multiple SD-WAN vendors in order to service different market segments
  • How a modular architecture can streamline the service
    offering across market segments

The live event was on May 19 & 20, 2020

For the first time in 25 years, we are putting in the network solutions that do not have an IETF defined protocol standard. Today’s SD-WAN solutions are not cross vendor compatible. When we interconnect SD-WAN solutions, we must go back to the least common denominator of IP BGP & IPSec hence, we lose all of the inherent functionality of SD-WAN. Will open source create a de facto SD-WAN standard to streamline end-to-end services?
The webinar will also review takeaways from the +90 page TechVision SD-WAN report.
