For all their benefits, SD-WANs aren’t set it and forget it. Care and feeding must be ongoing, whether it’s done by the enterprise IT team, supplier or managed service provider. For the channel, the latter option is the most lucrative over the long haul, especially for firms serving small and midsize enterprises that have multiple locations, a fair amount of SaaS use and little in-house WAN expertise.

Takeaways for Your Business

In this Channel Partners webinar, presented by CNSG in partnership with Windstream Enterprise, you’ll learn how to:

  • Assemble a full-featured SD-WAN as a service bundle while navigating a vibrant — even somewhat chaotic — SD-WAN market.

  • Make the case to forward-looking customers using, for example, optimized apps and hyperscale cloud connections.

  • Sell the benefits of a hybrid WAN that can bundle the multiple connection types found in SME customers and deliver business-class features, security and connectivity to locations where traditional circuits would be prohibitively expensive.
