The Rise of SD-WAN is an invitation only group of 20 senior information technology and business leaders from companies in the Greater Las Vegas area who will convene with three simple goals in mind:

  • To learn from each other
  • To network with each other
  • To enjoy a fine lunch
The format will feature an industry panel while everyone faces each other around one hollow square table to maximize interactivity. Please see photos below.
The rise of internet-based connectivity is driving IT leaders to rethink networking. SD-WAN is gaining popularity and replacing the traditional wide area networks as it’s proving to be an effective means of heightening performance, reliability and security for business’ ecosystems.

We will focus on sharing lessons learned from how organizations implement SD-WAN including these topics:

  • Discuss lessons learned from organizations that have adopted and deployed SD-WAN
  • The evolution and roadmap of intelligent networks
  • What are the business and performance benefits of building a better WAN?
  • Why are enterprises quickly adopting SD-WAN?
