SD-WAN Is The New MPLS
The Comtel Group, a VAR turned telecommunications and IT consulting firm, is working with SD-WAN startups and carriers to evangelize and deliver SD-WAN to its customer base.

Here's what president Bob Schubert, vice president Aaron Brown, and senior analyst and department manager Samuel Singer had to say.
