SD-WAN. Where next for VPN?
According to Price Waterhouse Coopers, MPLS revenues in Western Europe will fall by 12% ($2BN) by 2020. This decline has already started with the commoditization of services such as MPLS IP VPN. And with over 65% of enterprise customers surveyed by IDC saying they will adopt a hybrid WAN within 18 months Service Providers need an innovative approach to diversify revenue streams.
SD-WAN (Software Defined Wide Area Networks) is the disruptor driving much of this change. Service Providers need to embrace, rather than resist, the stated aim of 70% of enterprises to adopt SD-WAN. To help you understand the wider implications, Juniper Networks has teamed up with Price Waterhouse Coopers to deliver a number of seminars that will show how Service Providers can tap into new SD-WAN enabled revenue streams to offset declining MPLS revenues.
If you are part of the Service Provider organization responsible for designing and developing MPLS services – especially VPN services – or if you are a product manager responsible for the Profit and Loss for those services the SD-WAN Summits, hosted by Juniper Networks, are for you.
