Why is the WAN Summit Different?

We've crafted an agenda that focuses on the needs of the enterprise.

The WAN Summit agenda is set by you, the attendee. We work closely with a panel of advisors and past WAN Summit attendees to design agendas that address existing challenges and look ahead to the next big thing in enterprise WAN design.

You can expect to hear enlightening implementation case studies, expert panel discussions, and engaging small group talks.

We invite a diverse group of players from the enterprise WAN space to ensure a rich mix of attendees at the conference.
