In this episode, I look at the history of wide area networks (WANs) and how they transformed from simple connections between campuses to the modern state of cloud interconnection and application optimization. I also discuss how SD-WAN has hastened the end of the WAN as we know it. WANs aren’t what they used to be and it’s honestly at the point where I can see them completely disappearing in the next 3 years.
What do you think? Is the WAN here to stay? Will the cloud be the new connection of choice? Or will we just skip right to direct neural downloads? Let me know in the comments here or on the video!
