Masergy, Telstra, Other SD-WAN Vendors: Managed Services Essential

February 15th, 2018

Is plugging in an SD-WAN box sufficient in an age of rapidly evolving technology?

Chris Werpy, senior vice president of solutions and services for Masergy, says no. Werpy told an audience of partners at last week’s Bridgepointe Technologies event in San Francisco that customers will benefit most from an as-a-service offering because of how quickly SD-WAN is changing.

“The rate at which these technologies are changing is so fast that doing it in a way which takes advantage of a managed service, de-leverages that risk to a customer because they’re not locked in,” Werpy said.
