FutureWAN'18 Brings Industry Leaders Together for Global SD-WAN Summit


Amazon Web Services, IDC, Cisco and ServiceNow Among Featured Presenters


SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 18, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The FutureWAN'18 Summit today announced keynote presenters and the full agenda for its four day virtual summit. The global SD-WAN summit will feature analysts, technology providers, enterprise IT users and service providers. FutureWAN'18 will share experiences and deliver comprehensive education on the major aspects of enterprise WAN problems. Running Jan. 23 through Jan 26, the virtual event will feature multiple tracks, including Cloud, Security, Enterprise SD-WAN (Operations) and Managed Services.

SD-WAN's growth has created new and exciting growth opportunities for service providers and cloud players. The FutureWAN'18 summit will feature presentations by key players, including Verizon, BT, Orange Business Services and Amazon Web Services, among others, that are taking advantage of this new frontier. In addition, the summit will feature analyst presentations by IDC, Packet Pushers, Global Data, GestaltIT and EMA Research.

"Cloud adaption has made SD-WAN an important factor in network transformation decisions," stated Shamus McGillicuddy, Senior Analyst at EMA. "Enterprises require a modernized, cloud-ready infrastructure on which to roll out the new applications with enterprise-wide monitoring and control. SD-WAN delivers on many of those requirements." 

"Responding to the limitations of traditional WAN architectures and to the operational inefficiencies of legacy WAN management, software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) has struck a responsive chord with enterprises across a broad array of industries," said Brad Casemore, Research Director, Datacenter Networking at IDC. "Indeed, as the SD-WAN market moves into its next stage of robust growth - driven by mainstream enterprise adoption - IDC expects to see significant innovations during the next few years that will ensure that SD-WAN provides even greater value to enterprises worldwide."

The web-delivered summit is free for registered attendees. For a full schedule and to register visit:
