|A Unified Theory Of SDWAN Futures Part 1 – Whitepaper|
Four phases of SDWAN development are predictable based on current information. In this whitepaper, I describe those phases, and then propose a longer-term vision of WAN and campus networking. I also provide analysis to inform readers’ technology strategies.
|Dynamic Path Networking: SDWAN’s Better Way To Choose The “Best Path” – Whitepaper|
The report compares the technical underpinnings of traditional IP routing protocols with SDWAN’s Dynamic Path Networking and its key elements. These elements include APIs, network controllers, and overlays. Dynamic Path Routing is an essential part of today’s SDWAN technologies, and enables network designers and engineers to make smarter use of WAN bandwidth.
|Packet Pushers 2018 SD-WAN Survey Report|
This report examines 7 survey questions covering enterprise interest in SD-WAN, WAN pain points, essential SD-WAN features, and solution deployment options. Of the 272 respondents, 31% are senior network engineers, and 28% are network architects.
|SD-WAN: Building The Business Case & Understanding Your ROI|
This paper helps potential buyers map SD-WAN features & functions to business requirements, calculate an ROI, and outline options from a broad list of SD-WAN vendors. Use this paper to build your own SD-WAN vendor shortlist for further investigation & testing.
|SDWAN: Get A Managed Service Or Do It Yourself? (Your Incompetence Is My Opportunity) – Whitepaper|
MSPs believe enterprises don’t have skills or capabilities to deploy and operate SDWANs, and that service providers are best positioned to operate SDWAN services. This whitepaper makes the case for why most organizations will be best served by operating an SDWAN in-house, not by using an MSP.
