Jordan Martin has a problem. The idea of moving the control plane from a device to a central controller sounds like it makes a lot of sense in SDN. I mean, it’s called a control plane, why not move it to a controller? Despite the phonic similarity, this isn’t actually what happens.
How does the SD-WAN market shape up right now? What is working and what still needs some work? Jordan Martin weighs in on the discussion and gives his views as an SD-WAN expert. Also, be sure to register for the Viptela FutureWAN summit! Details inside!
