Global Capacity to Speak on the Customer Experience of Hybrid SD-WAN Transformations

Senior VP of Product, Chris Alberding, to Join Industry Leader Panel at WAN Summit San Jose

Waltham, MA, USA, May 25, 2017 Global Capacity, the leading connectivity as a service company, today announces its participation at WAN Summit San Jose, taking place June 14-15, 2017 in San Jose, CA.  The WAN Summit, held across the globe in New York, San Jose, Singapore and London, brings together corporate WAN strategists and service provider executives to discuss common industry challenges, gain new perspectives, build business relationships, and explore the latest trends and technologies that shape today’s WAN strategies.

On Wednesday, June 14, Global Capacity’s Senior Vice President of Product, Chris Alberding, will join industry executives from The GAP, GTT and Riverbed on the panel, “Hybrid Transformations – Experiences with Adopting SD-WAN and Integrating Internet into the WAN.”  The panel, moderated by Steve Garson, Founder and CEO of SD-WAN Experts, will discuss insights and learning from SD-WAN deployments, including designing the right network that incorporates a variety of access and network technologies.  Panelists will further discuss approaches to planning and mitigating risk in WAN transformation, the cost impact of deploying an SD-WAN solution, and how it will influence the relationships of customers with their service providers.

“One of the key characteristics of a SD-WAN is that it brings increased agility and automation to networks, which in turn delivers more business value.  Along with that value transformation comes an increase in network complexity,” explains Chris Alberding, SVP of Product at Global Capacity.  “Global Capacity’s managed SD-WAN service provides an improved network experience, resolving common WAN problems businesses face when building and managing complex Hybrid WAN architectures.”

Global Capacity’s recently announced SD-WAN service allows businesses to efficiently route data across their network by first choosing the right access connectivity based on the performance needs of individual locations and applications, then define unique policies to automatically prioritize traffic, enabling enterprises to make better use of bandwidth to enhance performance and overall user experience.

Global Capacity’s One MarketplaceTM provides Enterprises with real-time design, pricing, ordering and management of a broad portfolio of connectivity services.  The Marketplace provides transparency into services pricing and visibility into available capacity and performance across multiple access networks and geographies. The key innovation of the world’s first network marketplace is the automation of a hybrid of service provider pricing, infrastructure data and unique business rules, and the real-time delivery of multiple engineered Hybrid WAN options.  Global Capacity’s One Marketplace dramatically simplifies and fundamentally changes how Enterprises buy and manage SD-WAN connectivity.
