The premier WAN community for networking professionals

About Us

The WAN Summits bring together the buyers and providers of enterprise WAN services to identify and discuss trends in international network planning, procurement, and design.

How are the WAN Summits unique? They are vendor-neutral – all technologies, suppliers and ideas can be presented on an equal footing. They are diverse in focus – not just an SD-WAN conference, the WAN Summits cover all the challenges, trends and toolkits a WAN manager needs to do their job. And they are built around learning and networking – with enterprise-only sessions, focused discussion groups, and no-pressure consultations between network managers and solution providers. 

WAN Summit events run each year in London, New York, Sydney, Singapore and Dusseldorf.
