Welcome to the November 2017 Newsletter.

Why should the WAN miss out when it comes to all things software-defined? This month we have two articles that outline the appeal of software-defined wide area networks (SD-WANs). First, Nick Johnson, CEO at Evolving Networks explains how the SD-WAN is the natural successor to MPLS, saying that “The demands on networking and connectivity are growing within organisations, especially those with multiple sites, as they clamour for more flexibility, more bandwidth and improved cost-effectiveness. In the era of software-defined everything there's no reason that connectivity can't also benefit: and that's where SD-WAN comes in.”

Talari’s Atchison Frazer also explores how an SD-WAN can help alleviate network infrastructure congestion, stating that “Whether the WAN is exclusively MPLS, a hybrid WAN of MPLS and broadband, all Internet links backed up with wireless, or extended to the cloud, an intelligent SD-WAN solution will ensure continuous availability and predictable performance. Using the networked intelligence from across the WAN, it's possible to avoid expanding MPLS lines and in turn derive more value from an existing MPLS investment.”

With IDC forecasting that SD-WAN revenues will reach $2.1bn across EMEA by 2021 you can expect to hear a lot more about them in the coming months. Watch this space – and future editions of the magazine – for more!
