The traditional MPLS based network connectivity model is proving too rigid for SaaS applications and mobile Internet access. In order to ensure users have fast, reliable and secure connectivity to cloud-based enterprise apps, organizations are turning to SD-WAN. This session will explain how SD-WAN technology from Viptela has enabled the organization to migrate to cloud-based healthcare applications, ensure 100% network uptime of patient and administrative services, and rapidly enable services like guest WiFi and cloud-based VoIP and medicinal dispensing.
