  • Digital Spotlight: SDN – a disruption waiting to happen

    Disruptive technologies do just what their name implies. They shake up existing markets and values and replace it with new markets. Such disruption can be painful, wrenching and traumatic, even though they play out over decades and, more often, come out for the better at the other end.

  • The Mandate to Adopt a Software Defined Branch Office

    The primary reason for the popularity of the traditional branch office WAN architecture is that until recently there hadn’t been a fundamentally new WAN technology or architecture introduced into the marketplace since the introduction of MPLS almost twenty years ago. That situation began to change a couple of years ago with the introduction of a new class of WAN solutions that takes a software-centric approach to providing WAN products and services. This new class of solutions is typically referred to as a Software Defined WAN (SD-WAN). The large and growing interest in SD-WANs was discussed in a report by Transparency Market Research. According to that report, the global SD-WAN market will expand at a 51.4% CAGR between 2017 and 2025. Rising at this rate, the market will likely become worth US$34.35 billion by 2025.
