Citrix SD-WAN Customer Briefing, London, 3rd July

All you need to know about Citrix SD-WAN

Wednesday 3rd July 2019 1000 - 1500 Citrix Executive Briefing Centre, Paddington, London FREE (Registration required)

Chances are your branch users think your network sucks and sadly, more often than not, they are right.

Session freeze due to network congestion, poor quality voice services in the branch, random service disconnects that impact user or customer satisfaction and long haul networks that slow user productivity. It's no surprise that most networks suffer from at least one of these issues at some point and it’s likely that service levels slip frequently enough that the complaints don't just come from the users but from the boardroom too. 

Yes, you could throw more money at your MPLS provider (probably a lot of money) but with WAN costs typically consuming around 65% of the IT OpEx budget, there has to be a better way to ensure a great, secure user experience without crippling costs. This is the basic principle behind Citrix SD-WAN.

SD-WAN is a super hot industry topic but what makes a good SD-WAN solution, what should you look for, what can you expect and who's doing it in the real world?

Join cloudDNA with guests from Citrix at this open forum roundtable event and join the SD-WAN revolution!

In this session, we will be discussing...

  • How to deliver a better branch user experience and increase branch user productivity.
  • How to deliver a more reliable WAN to ensure that branch office access to applications is never interrupted by an outage on a single network link.
  • How to significantly reduce network costs by securely using lower cost broadband connections in place of or in addition to private MPLS networks.
  • How to increase network bandwidth to support business initiatives such as Skype 4 Business, without horrific MPLS upgrade costs.
  • Key technical differentiators that actually matter in the real world.
  • How to reduce the time taken to get new branches online from weeks to minutes (yes, minutes).
  • How to simplify branch infrastructure to reduce operational complexity and cost.
  • How to securely adopt multi cloud and hybrid cloud architectures.
  • Stacks of case notes and real world use cases.
  • The answers to all of your Citrix SD-WAN questions.

We're at Citrix UK HQ so if the weather is nice, we'll finish the day with drinks on the roof top garden 16 floors up over Hyde Park.
