    New year, new WAN: SD-WAN adoption takes off

    More and more enterprises are using software-defined networking principles in the wide area network, with industry experts predicting that SD-WAN adoption will skyrocket in 2017. In fact, some top analysts expect the market to grow as much as 90% every year for at least the next three years. In this edition of Network Evolution, we explore three diverse SD-WAN deployment stories to illustrate the growing trend and offer insight into how SD-WAN adoption plays out on the ground.
