How important is the SD-WAN market today? Is it on the same level as virtualization 20 years ago?

From in industry standpoint, in my view, WAN is a piece that cannot change very often. It can't change very often because it's the lifeblood of all businesses and you don't change your lifeblood very often because there's a lot of pain when the change happens. The fact that SD-WAN is gaining so much visibility and this many deployments this early in the lifespan is because there are very dramatic benefits to putting SD-WAN in. You look around and see the pace at which enterprises are deploying SD-WAN and it's approaching 8,000-9,000 enterprises now, and that is unheralded in the WAN space. It is the most important networking change to happen in the last few years.
