SD-WAN Industry Perspectives: Cradlepoint: The Next WAN WAVE
SDW-01
VP Product Management 
Cradlepoint
SD-WAN has drawn so much attention over the past few years that it is hard to believe that there may be other technology forces building in the WAN space. Join Marc Bresniker, VP Product Management, Cradlepoint as he shares what is likely to be the next big thing in WAN networking – the wireless WAN wave. Using cellular-based broadband as an SD-WAN link has been an essential part of high-availability networking for a number of years. However, as 4G LTE transforms into Gigabit-Class LTE and eventually full-fledged 5G, wireless is poised to change organizations worldwide with exceptional new levels of reliability, performance, flexibility, and cost-effectiveness. Businesses and agencies will use 5G to connect devices and applications that expand customer engagement, streamline operations, and enable agility in ways that have never been possible — until now.

The SOC-enabled SD-WAN: Unlock the Full Potential of Your Secure SD-WAN
SDW-11
Sr Director, Product Management - Threat Response
Open Systems
Many vendors tout the integrated security of their SD-WAN solution however the value of this integration can only be fully realized when combined with the continuous monitoring and threat detection of a world-class security operations center (SOC). Whether you are building your own SD-WAN or considering a SD-WAN service provider it is critical to understand the role of the SOC in minimizing your overall risk. This session describes what to look for in an effective SOC and presents best practices to minimize noise and amplify the signal needed to detect advanced threats.
