Synopsis:

The digital transformation is driving customer requirements for agility, security and performance (i.e. DevOps), software is eating everything and legacy WAN connectivity is incompatible. Application Specific Network-as-code enables WAN connectivity to be embedded directly into apps, containers or VMs (AppWANs) which instant global virtual private networks without building any physical infrastructure - i.e. software only, cloud native, API orchestrated and compatible to DevOps ‘infrastructure-as-code approach’. It is built around zero-trust and delivers high reliability/performance. This will allow developers to be unshackled by telcos, proprietary hardware, long lead time while delivering the app experience their consumers want compliant to security required.
