The debate over Net Neutrality has been raging for years. There are many facets to it. To recap the essence of the debate, Wikipedia defines Net Neutrality as “the principle that all Internet traffic should be treated equally.” One of the fundamental issues being debated is that of giving preferential—or discriminatory, depending on your viewpoint—treatment of traffic with certain attributes, such as protocol, content, application. The fear is that non-neutrality will discriminate against the average Joe and favor behemoth companies with deep pockets and long arms.

Nine of the biggest trends for the SD-WAN market for 2016 are:  The net neutrality debate doesn’t go away and, it won’t matter – The net neutrality fight was all over the news in 2015. 2016 won’t be any different. If you don’t know, the net neutrality fight is about whether companies or customers will be granted a faster lane for bandwidth hungry web-based services and applications.
