SD-WAN is a game changing technology, serving as a key component of the digital era. Digital transformation is touching all points of technology, and as the cloud adoption and applications grow, SD-WAN is an exceptional way to deliver performance, reliability, flexibility and cut costs on an organization’s WAN spend. With the weekend upon us, there’s no better time than the present to take a look back at the week that was in: It’s time for the Week in Review!

EdgeWater Networks announced Trade Up to SD-WAN, a program offering partners the possibility of upgrading older EdgeMarc Intelligent Edges to a device capable of supporting SD-WAN. The program allows partners to augment functionality, while still maintaining security and service assurance. All the details are HERE.

SD-WAN has gotten a lot of coverage in recent months. It’s an interesting and useful approach to what’s happening at businesses and with the cloud today. But once organizations have decided SD-WAN is match for their needs, the next big challenge is to figure out how they want to consume it and from which supplier. TMC’s Paula Bernier (News - Alert) delves into the matter more HERE.

The results are in, and Versa’s Cloud IP Platform earned honors in two categories. The Gold Stevie for New Product or Service of the year and Silver Stevie for Network Security Solutions (News - Alert) solidify the SD-WAN provider’s position as a leader in a rapidly expanding arena. Rob McBride, director of marketing for Versa Networks explained, “The fact that the Versa Cloud IP Platform has been named the top offering in software-defined infrastructure while also being named a top network security solution is a testament to our innovation and speaks volumes about the need for a single solution that both software defines and secures the enterprise edge.” Complete coverage is HERE.

This week, Intermedia (News - Alert) announced BigLeaf as its preferred SD-WAN partner. The pairing aids Intermedia in its goal of delivering five 9’s of uptime, elevates overall performance of the Intermedia Unite suite and deepens ties with an SD-WAN pioneer in the process. Everything you need to know is HERE.

Remember to come back early and often for your fill of all things SD-WAN! See you next week!
