Internet bandwidth is available everywhere at low cost. Is it ready to replace your expensive private WAN circuits? In this workshop, we'll take a long, hard look at the future of the WAN and cover the next generation of technologies that offer new hope for replacing today's costly, slow-to-provision, and under-utilized WAN. Those technologies include cloud-based WANs, WAN as a service, SDN-based WANs and optical choices. Some of these options can serve both as a WAN and remote-access VPNs for end users. Some options also offer services such as acceleration and content scanning.
At the same time, we'll discuss issues that will transform the way we use old technologies. In particular, WAN security and content inspection may become obsolete as new protocols change the way we work.
This workshop will help you to plan for the next 5 years of WAN and give you hope that one day you will be free of overpriced and underused WAN services.
