Event Description

Next-generation WANs are based on two technologies that are radically changing both network cost structure and capabilities: Software defined networking (SDN) and network function virtualization (NFV). Join Wall Street Technology leaders for this lively and insightful discussion describing how they’ve leveraged these changes to improve performance, cut costs, and future-proof their infrastructure. Attendees will come away with a checklist of best practices highlighting what works and doesn’t, and with insights into how to organize and staff to capitalize on these emerging technologies.
