Transforming the WAN: Bringing Applications to the Users

Cisco’s JL Valente discusses the challenges IT groups face to support work from anywhere and the greater distribution of applications. Users need to connect to applications and get the best user experience from anywhere they work and from any device. How has networking and particularly SD-WAN evolved to address these requirements and support hybrid, secure multi-cloud environments?

In this Executives at the Edge episode, host Pascal Menezes explores these topics and more with JL Valente of Cisco:

  • The evolution of SD-WAN.
  • How AI and ML for traffic steering and performance monitoring are transforming networking.
  • Benefits of integration when connecting to cloud-based applications.
