Panel discussion with Keith Langridge, VP of BT Connect portfolio
Keith Langridge, Vice President of Network Services at BT Global Services, will be taking part in a panel discussion on The Past, Present and Future of WAN Optimisation on day 1 at 3.30pm.
WAN Optimization emerged in the early 2000s as a key means of improving performance of applications over wide-area networks while rationing high-cost WAN bandwidth. Much has changed over the past decade. This panel discussion will explore how WAN optimization is changing.
• What are the key current use cases for WAN optimization technologies in enterprise networks?
• What is the interplay between "classic" appliance-based WAN optimization technologies and more recently introduced WAN optimization as a service techniques?
• How might SDN and SD-WAN affect WAN optimization?
• Is there a role for WAN optimization in improving connectivity to public cloud services that are accessed over the Internet?
