Webinar : “Building an NFV Enabled SDWAN Solution- Maximizing the potential with Intel & Happiest Minds”
Date: Feb 9, 2017, 0900 PST
SDWAN is stepping forward to steal the limelight. As network users’ demand for bandwidth continues to skyrocket, SDN + WAN promises to address the pressing connectivity needs and challenges posed by the latest technologies like Cloud, SaaS, BYOD etc. This webinar will provide you with practical and technical insights that provide a holistic picture of the emergence of SD-WAN and showcase some of its most compelling use-cases. We will also touch upon how Happiest Minds has architected and implemented this solution on Intel platforms using DPDK on Intel Atom based CPE as well as Intel XEON based NFVI running various VNFs like Firewall, IPS, IDS, Antivirus et al. This SDWAN and CPE solution using DPDK and Intel chipsets provides unmatched flexibility that can help transform expensive and inflexible wide area networks to being cost effective, agile, intelligent and feature rich.
The session will enable the audience to understand the various deployment topologies and the services that can be provisioned using NFV & SD-WAN and also discern the significant components which enable the entire solution to comply with SLAs similar to current deployments with physical network functions.
