Networking has become painfully complicated. There has been little innovation in routing for decades. Overly complex networks are barely meeting today’s business requirements, with armies of sleep-deprived network engineers, duct-tape, and some luck. In this talk, we will discuss how session orientation in the routing layer allows a fundamentally different, far simpler, way to network. Session Smart Routers enable tunnel free SD-WAN on Intel uCPEs which improve scale and performance by leaps when compared to traditional routers. We will discuss how enterprises and service providers are using this to unlock unprecedented value.
