The second SD-WAN Summit will take with the most eminent experts who will bring answers to the following questions: What is an SD-WAN service? When can a provider be called a "SD-WAN" provider?
As a participant operator put it: "You can’t replace a network with 43 VRF, 5 classes of QoS, etc. by an IPsec VPN tunnel over the Internet".
So when it comes to co-existence with MPLS, how do you manage a smooth transition to SD-WAN in different real situations?
How to implement a solution with 2 or more SDWAN providers?
As stated by another telco: "Using SD-WAN and the Internet is one thing. Achieving performance is another. How do we maintain quality of service?"
