Trumbull, CT – February 7, 2018 – TMC today announced that Hughes Network Systems, LLC (Hughes), a global leader in SD-WAN technology and services, has joined as a gold sponsor of the SD-WAN Conference & Expo being held February 14-16, 2018 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Bill Rumancik, Senior Director of Enterprise Solutions at Hughes, will be a speaker at the event, providing insights on how SD-WAN can transform an organization’s network capabilities for higher performance and efficiency.  

SD-WAN Expo is the leading event for enterprise executives, service providers, and technology vendors to learn about the latest network innovations and discuss how the market is growing and evolving. Running in tandem with ITEXPO – one of the largest communications and technology conferences in the world – SD-WAN Expo provides a unique forum for industry leaders to connect and learn how to make the most of the SD-WAN opportunity for their organization.

“The growth in business-critical applications and the continued transition to cloud-based tools and services are driving a greater dependence than ever by enterprises on their network,” said Rumancik. “As the leader in Distributed SD-WAN, Hughes is actively involved in the industry conversation and can share at the SD-WAN Expo how we’re helping our customers achieve fast, secure, and fully managed service delivery with our turnkey SD-WAN enterprise solutions designed to meet the unique needs of large distributed organizations.”

Now the hottest networking technology in the market, SD-WAN is experiencing increased traction at organizations of all sizes and is projected to see continued significant growth for years to come. This growth is largely attributed to the deployment options that complement existing infrastructure, bring increased flexibility and agility to enterprise networks, and help organizations better manage their networks and resources. Expo attendees will have the opportunity to hear about practical deployment strategies and explore common challenges and future solutions from experts like Hughes and other participating vendors. Hughes will also be showcasing its newest platform, the HR4860, which combines industry leading Hughes ActiveTechnologies™ and UTM security features to deliver advanced SD-WAN capabilities. The new platform was developed in a partnership with cybersecurity solutions leader Fortinet.
