In conjunction with our partner Converge! Network Digest, AvidThink is pleased to announce a refresh to our SD-WAN and SASE Resource Site and Report that provides an update on the market and discusses strategies for enterprises and service providers.
The resource site has also been updated with new perspectives and insights from technology leaders and innovators like Aryaka, Asavie, now part of Akamai, Cradlepoint, Enea, Juniper Networks, Lumen Technologies, Nuage Networks from Nokia, and Opengear as well as major network operators in the space including AT&T, Comcast Business, Masergy (soon to be part of Comcast), and Spectrum Enterprise. We’ll be rotating in new content periodically from thought leaders, as well as our sponsors and partners, so keep your eye on the site as we bring you the latest insights into SD-WAN and SASE.
