VeloCloud Selected to Present Best Practices and Benefits of SD-WAN at WAN Summit New York Next Week
VeloCloud Co-founder & VP of Products Steve Woo Chosen to Present on Implications and ROI of Moving from MPLS-only WAN to SD-WAN
Mountain View, Calif, March 29, 2016
VeloCloud Networks Inc., the Cloud-Delivered SD-WAN™ company, today announced that Steve Woo, VeloCloud Co-founder and VP of Products, has been selected to present on a panel titled “After MPLS – Experiences and Lessons from Moving Traffic to the Internet” at the WAN Summit New York next week.
The panel will be held at 9:35 am EDT on April 5 in the Current Event Center at Chelsea Piers. The decade plus dominance of the all-MPLS WAN is waning and hybrid WANs, including dedicated Internet access and business broadband, are increasingly common. This session will explore experiences from carriers, vendors, and end-users on why they moved traffic to the Internet and what they learned along the way.
VeloCloud Cloud-Delivered SD-WAN enables enterprises to support application growth, network agility and simplified branch implementations while delivering optimized access to cloud services, private datacenters and enterprise applications. Global service providers are able to increase revenue, deliver advanced services and increase flexibility by delivering elastic transport, performance for cloud applications, and integrated advanced services all via a zero-touch deployment model.
VeloCloud will demonstrate VeloCloud Cloud-Delivered SD-WAN in Booth #10 at the event.
