One of the World’s Largest Carpet Producers Rolls out SD-WAN in Record Time

“With restrictions on travel and an increasing number of staff working remotely, the ability to push out central configuration changes and policy updates in real-time proved invaluable. In the end, not only did we complete the roll-out at a time when many projects were being postponed, but we had all 180 showrooms online within just three months.”
