Your network only exists to deliver the applications and services your business needs to win. Despite this, networks don't speak the language of the applications and services they serve… the language of sessions.

Today - as the vendors who've driven and benefited from the hardware-centric networking model of the last 20 years are touting "software-defined" versions of the same old thing - enterprise and service provider customers would do well to ask a simple question: Is your network smart enough to know what it's carrying? If it is, you're on your way to increased simplicity, agility, security and performance, all at a lower cost. If not, what you're doing might serve the strategies of the big network guys' business more than it does the strategy of your own.

In this presentation, 128 Technology Founder & CEO Andy Ory will demonstrate how Session Smart ™ technology closes the gap between what you network does and what your business needs, creating a closer working relationship between the network and applications it supports, and enabling a service-centric fabric that simplifies the addition of strategic capabilities for the WAN and virtual edge, enables multi-cloud architectures without cloud vendor lock-in, and turns network security from something painted on to the perimeter to something baked right in to the network itself.
