The Digital-Native Network: How Software Will Define the WAN

By: Roz ParkinsonResearch Manager, EMEA Enterprise Networks and Life-Cycle services, Jan Hein BakkersSenior Research Manager, European Telecommunications and Networking


This IDC Web Conference highlights how new networking technologies like software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) will enable enterprise digital transformation. SD-WAN offers enterprises a more flexible, scalable, manageable, and cost-effective way to manage their WANs. IDC predicts the SD-WAN market in EMEA for managed services, infrastructure, and consulting and integration services will reach almost $2.5 billion by 2022. However, SD-WAN will have a major impact on the infrastructure, connectivity, and professional service markets, so technology providers need to prepare themselves to avoid disruption and take advantage of this opportunity.
