The 2018 WAN Survey: Helping Us, Help You

January 9, 2018

What will 2018 bring for networking? Help us find out and participate in our recently launched “2018 State of the WAN” survey. You can see the survey here.

The survey seeks to understand the state of the today’s business networks. We look at general networking and security trends impacting business. We dig into the drivers and adoption of SD-WAN, the cloud, mobility and more. And we uncover what IT managers really want from their SD-WAN suppliers.

Some of the questions we’ll explore include:

  • Will MPLS adoption continue to grow?
  • What will impact will SD-WAN have on network security?
  • Is NFV more than just hype?
  • What are the most important factors when deploying SD-WAN?

By gathering information from folks like yourself, we’re able to help everyone understand the bigger picture of our industry. Last year, for example, we were able to predict the continued adoption of MPLS despite the emergence of SD-WAN. It was a widely covered insight that while obvious today, perhaps, back then rocked the industry. Many IT pros finally had a realistic barometer for their own networking plans and investment.
