San Jose

Hilton DoubleTree, June 14-15, 2017


The WAN Summit San Jose 2017 is now over! We thank all our attendees, speakers and sponsors for making the event launch go as well as it did. Check back in the coming weeks to view our event archive of photos, videos and presentation slides from the event. 

At the Intersection of Technology and Business

The only event bringing together the enterprise and service provider communities to examine WAN market drivers and technologies

Key IT trends, such as cloud services, virtualization, collaboration, and big data are impacting the evolution of the enterprise WAN including the ongoing migration of applications to the cloud, the limitations of the public Internet over long distances, and the impact of networking problems on application performance.

While conferences on each of these themes abound, no other conference has been designed by corporate network managers for corporate network managers to explore the most significant trends that will impact CIOs, IT Directors, Network Architects, and Network Managers, as the global enterprise WAN evolves in 2017 and beyond.

With summits already firmly established in London, New York and Singapore attended by over 250 organisations we are delighted to launch the WAN Summit  San Jose to will bring together corporate WAN strategists and service provider executives to discuss common challenges, gain new perspectives, and to build business relationships with potential suppliers, customers, and peers. No other event offers comparable opportunities for meaningful interaction between the providers and buyers of enterprise network services.

The State of the Global Enterprise WAN: All You Need To Know

We are at the beginning of a period of sweeping change in the corporate networks sector driven by the rise of cloud services, the emergence of new networking technologies and changes in user devices, applications and behaviors.

Distributed network, consolidation and mobility are key network characteristics of more and more companies around the world.
