Companies want simplicity and security, so “I don’t think building virtual networks on top of the networks we already have is the way to go,” said 128 COO Patrick MeLampy.
Most SD-WAN vendors are limited by their inability to create a Service-Centric Fabric.
Is session-based signaling in the future for SDN and NFV architectures?
It combines Lanner’s uCPE appliances and 128 Technology’s routing software.
128 doesn't use tunnels or overlays.
The additional funding will be used to expand globally.
2016 was a big year for the nascent technology, but it’s raised some issues.
SD-WAN is a temporary solution – not a market.
But its technology can still replace MPLS.
Session-aware and deterministic routers are the key.
