Session Description

The Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) market was defined by ONUG and has emerged as the hottest software-defined networking market thanks to its ability to lower cost, shift control of network state and resources to IT business leaders, and deliver multiple WAN transport options and agility to provide secure connectivity between private and public clouds. The ONUG SD-WAN Working Group has already delivered use case requirements and a hugely successful feature verification test plan used by some 17 vendors, and has started the process of developing multi-vendor proof of concepts. During the winter months, the SD-WAN group began a new phase to explore additional SD-WAN use cases. In this session, members of the working group will provide an update on the group’s findings based upon this exploratory phase.
