With the cloud movement picking up speed, new technologies are continuously emerging to enable businesses with networks of all sizes to take advantage of the benefits the cloud offers. For those looking to make a strategic decision, the list of acronyms can be daunting and confusing: SD-WAN, SDN, NFV, VNF. But it isn’t a matter of making a choice among these options - instead, the strategy should turn to figuring out which to use and how they can work together to deliver a scalable, high-performance, and secure network.

In this webinar, you’ll walk away knowing:

  • The roles of SDN, SD-WAN, and NFV in the branch office and the data center
  • How SDN is applied to the WAN in the form of SD-WAN
  • Whether SD-WAN and NFV are the same, complementary, or alternatives to each other

In addition, the webinar will present real-world use cases for NFV and VNFs as well as how large enterprises, medium enterprises and service providers are deploying the services in their own environments.
