With the rise of SD-WAN technology and UCaaS offerings, enterprises are finding their real-time traffic traversing networks that may include public Internet connections that provide QoS sporadically if at all. So what can you do to make the end-to-end service work better? In this session, the enterprise communications industry’s leading expert on IP networking will help you understand the challenges and solutions. He’ll describe real-world deployments where end-to-end QoS was challenging, and how network managers configured the network to ensure that real-time traffic got the resources it needed to provide enterprise-grade communications. You’ll come away more prepared to make your enterprise’s real-time traffic stand up to the conditions it may encounter across a variety of network segments.

Takeaways:

* Understand what level of QoS is likely to be available on the different network segments that make up an SD-WAN or UCaaS deployment.
* Know what questions to ask your service providers about QoS.
* Be able to choose the right type of network connectivity for different segments of a deployment, in order to ensure QoS.
* Understand the cost tradeoffs for providing QoS across a modern communications network.
