Networking Innovator and Forbes’ “Next Billion Dollar Startup” will Showcase Innovations in SD-WAN




Lloyd Noronha is Director of Marketing at Viptela, a leading provider of Software-Defined WAN technology. He has nearly two decades experience in the technology and networking industry. At Juniper Networks he led product marketing for the company’s service provider routing product portfolio.



DEMO Traction is a new conference that showcases the most promising growth start-ups that “are solving problems using cutting edge technology and exhibiting TRACTION”. Viptela, which was recently named among the 25 “Next Billion Dollar Startups” by Forbes, and named a Gartner Cool Vendor in enterprise networking, was selected from hundreds of applicant companies to take the stage at DEMO Traction.
Enterprise networking has reached crossroads. The explosion of cloud applications, mobile and video traffic has created complex new WAN challenges. Lloyd Noronha will explain how Viptela has developed a Software Defined Networking (SDN) approach to solve these problems. He will also discuss Viptela’s current market traction among Fortune 1000 companies and Tier-1 service providers, as well as:

-- How the Viptela Secure Extensible Network (SEN) provides anywhere-to-anywhere secure communications over any transport technology (MPLS, Broadband, LTE, etc.) while providing full application based control.


-- How Viptela increases business agility while reducing IT management complexities – enabling enterprises to centrally manage and secure multiple networks and transport technologies as if they were a single system.

-- How Viptela technology enables enterprises to cut their networking budget by 50-60% or more
