Network Edge Zone (Expo Floor)

The VMworld Expo floor will be packed with vendors, sharing their solutions and products. This year, the VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud team will host a Network Edge Lounge on the show floor that will include a host of SD-WAN partners, giving you the opportunity to find out the best way to purchase and deploy SD-WAN into your environment. We’ll be conveniently located next to the IoT Zone and the VMware booth.

If you are part of the VeloCloud Partner Program and would like to sponsor a booth or kiosk in the Network Edge Zone, please contact Rosa Lear, director of marketing, for more information.

What speaks louder than words? A demo. We can talk about the benefits you’d get from our solution all day long (and will if you let us), but getting a visual walk-through of what SD-WAN is capable of will make you a believer. If you’ve never seen VMware SD-WAN in action, or even if you have and you want to see what’s new, come by the VMware booth in the Expo hall and one of our friendly and knowledgeable experts will gladly walk you through this amazing technology.

 

Hands-on Labs (HOL)

Like our live booth demos, the SD-WAN Hands-on Lab gives you the unique opportunity to take SD-WAN for a test drive. Connect to the lab and try your hand at installations, connectivity, network assessment, and troubleshooting. Check out how it works in a real-life environment and become a believer.
