Re: 2020 SD-WAN
@mpouraryan This type of technical deployment is so new, I think it's going to take a while to get to the reselling stage. 

Remember, whether it's cloud or virtualization or anything else new, reselling usually comes after a vendor is able to work out the kinks.

Re: 2020 SD-WAN
Why do think it is "way off" @dccarvey?   What does not take to make sure that it is here and now?

Re: 2020 SD-WAN
Reselling SD-WAN is a ways off. 

That being said, the subcription model is doing well for cloud. It's made things like licensing a lot eaiser than ever before.

Re: 2020 SD-WAN
@feehe - That is really crazy how quickly it's going to grow. But then any company that is going to be serious anymore needs to be relying on technology.

Re: An outcome to be expected
@JohnBarnes, great points. Just curious which is more secure SD-WAN or VPN since most enterprises use VPN and based on the statistics will be switching to SD-WAN and direct internet access by 2020 and a few reasons why?

2020 SD-WAN
"By 2020, more than 60% of enterprises will have deployed direct Internet access in their branch offices, up from less than 30% last year."

Wow. This statistic is amazing and aggressive. In the next sixteen months over half of the enterprises will provide direct Internet access. This is double the figure from last year.

Technological growth is exponential.

Here is a great chart of how technology will advance.

Re: SD-WAN Booming
@clrmoney. This is great. SD-WAN can help companies reduce the IT budget, provide a ROI and save on TCO. This will free up money to provide wanted service for customers and keep the shareholders happy.

Direct Access
This is great. SD-WAN will allow companies to provide direct access to the internet anytime anywhere 24/7. Access will be provided in a secure manner since SD-WAN can offer encryption.

Re: An outcome to be expected
@JohnBarnes, excellent remarks and assessment.  I believe that to be true.

I like Mike's breakdown on the three types.  I am thinking the new combined breakthrough values will come in the virtual category, which unleashes the greater potential that SD-WAN provides.

An outcome to be expected
By its nature, SD-WAN deploys fast -- all but instantaneously.  And long acquisition cycles are themselves obsolete; quick response counts for a great deal. Thus, new nets going in and old nets expanding are going to be reaching for SD-WAN as a first choice; everything else is slower and more difficult, and probably more expensive.

We've passed the tipping point. Local hardware based solutions are just never going to be the cheapest OR the most reliable solution again, except in very strange or exotic circumstances.
