Nearly 48% enterprise attendees responded indicating a desire to use Internet either as a part of Internet only or Hybrid sites. At the same time, 46% SPs responded suggesting they would like to offer revenue generating SD-WAN offerings to their customers.

In fact, the VeloCloud Edge software ran as a virtual instance on the router itself…

Earlier this year, we published our first release of VeloCloud Internet Quality Report. This report provides insight into the Internet performance during 2H/2014 and its impact to the applications and user experience. We found the Internet performance was unpredictable and could not provide consistent quality of experience demanded by enterprises.

We recently updated the report with Q1/2015 data and presented the findings during our Webinar. Here are the highlights: The percentage of time that the…
