The Evolution Of Connectivity
Cloud-delivered WAN specialist VeloCloud said it's only a matter of time before the cloud becomes the network. The Mountain View, Calif.-based networking startup said it's reinventing wide area networking through software-defined initiatives that will ultimately reshape the network.
Software-defined WAN is an emerging technology that provides network simplification, cost savings and increased agility, according to a recent Gartner report. Gartner said by the end of 2018, 10 percent of enterprises will have replaced their WAN routing with SD-WAN solutions, up from less than 1 percent in 2015.
VeloCloud CEO Sanjay Uppal tells CRN how VARs are transitioning to become MSPs, the revenue opportunity for SD-WAN in the emerging Internet-of-Things market and why the cloud will be considered the new network.
