Case Study: Delivering a state of the art SD-WAN solution to support remote and diverse working needs

In the current business environment, reliance on Cloud-based applications has grown immensely. To be able to support this need, an effective SD-WAN (Software-Defined Wide-Area Network) is required. Join this Webinar to hear how one organisation delivered its new network and is now routing 80% of traffic via local internet connections instead of using expensive MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching) connections.

The implementation of iWAN (Intelligent Wide-Area Network) has brought Ricoh Europe £500,000 in savings over the life of the project. Additionally, it has allowed Ricoh to showcase its services to customers more effectively and increase employee productivity.

iWAN’s multi-channel network forms the core of the innovation, and Ricoh is one of the first companies in the world to implement a fully programmable SD network on this scale.
This was a complex project of great scale, geographical coverage, investment and risk, involving multiple partners, advanced technology and the transformation of mission critical services, to support Ricoh's digital transformation strategy.
Join this Webinar to find out exactly how they did it.

This Webinar will most benefit those responsible for Infrastructure or in Leadership roles.
