    Teleflex, a global provider of specialty medical devices that help improve the health and quality of people's lives, faced issues with its legacy network. WAN costs, complexity of delivering cloud apps using legacy router-based WAN designs, and application performance, including voice quality, were all affecting the business. The team had built a then state-of-the-art network focused on data center apps. But with a strong move to the cloud, centralization of voice, and business growth, the WAN was becoming the bottleneck - bandwidth requirements were doubling every 18 to 24 months. On top of this, IT support personnel often received complaints from users about "application performance issues." They believed that a building a hybrid network and putting in space an SD-WAN was the answer.

    The team did a thorough evaluation of SD-WAN vendors, choosing a solution that would allow it to build a network based on business intent rather than network reachability and legacy protocols. After deploying the SD-WAN solution at offices worldwide, Teleflex was able to ensure SLA-based delivery of high-bandwidth Cloud and voice applications, eliminate hardware routers and legacy WAN optimization devices, and reduce telco costs by over 50%. As Teleflex illustrates,

    Because IT no longer has to manage complex routing protocols, they can now express business intent via application-policies and have a network that delivers against performance, security, and compliance SLAs. With this new approach, Teleflex is able to fully utilize its DIA and commodity Internet circuits to balance traffic, achieve flexibility and granularity into application performance, and fully monitor network utilization and application performance, enabling it to quickly and accurately identify network, server, and app bottlenecks.

    In this session Cooper Cash, team lead of branch office infrastructure, will draw from his experiences at Teleflex to discuss the reasons his company made the switch to SD-WAN and how it revolutionized their networking experience. He will also touch on why SD-WAN is better equipped to address the needs of modern businesses than other networking approaches and how other companies can take advantage of investing in SD-WAN as well.

    Attendees will learn the immediate and future benefits of a true SD-WAN solution, as well as how the best SD-WAN solutions are able to avoid the typical roadblocks of legacy networks. This clarification will give decision makers the tools they need to choose the most efficient and cost-effective offering on the market that will create the most value for their business.
