OTTAWA, Ontario–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Northforge Innovations, Inc., an expert software consulting and development company, announces that Narayana Indukuri, senior architect at Northforge, will be speaking about the future of SDN-WAN technologies at the SDN-WAN Expo, scheduled to be held from February 11-14 at the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center. He will be speaking on the “Through the SD-WAN Looking Glass” panel from 11:00 a.m. – 11:55 a.m. on Friday, February 14 in Room 315. This breakout session brings together Industry leaders to see through the looking glass and discuss what the future holds for SD-WAN.
“Enterprise networks have been rapidly evolving due to increased demand in bandwidth and security vulnerabilities. The old model of a fixed transport infrastructure funneling all traffic to a single data center is virtually dead,” said Indukuri. “Wide Area Networks need to become smarter to cope with network resources and security challenges. SD-WAN can be armored with artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) principles to make SD-WAN stronger, faster and smarter. With this the network becomes zero-touch and adaptive to changes in the infrastructure.”
According to Indukuri, achieving a self-driving, self-healing SD-WAN is key. AI/ML can give network operators the ability to preemptively detect the abnormalities and re-route traffic before failure occurs. Customers enjoy uninterrupted packet transmission. Another major benefit of SD-WAN with AI/ML is that the network will be able to detect abnormal activities automatically and can trigger appropriate actions. For example, SD-WAN equipped with AI/ML not only detects abnormalities in the network but also differentiates malicious activity based on behavior models and triggers necessary actions.
