Gartner Market Guide for Managed SD-WAN Summary

Key Findings:

The market consists of providers operating as a single point of contact (SPOC) for procuring and managing SD-WAN products and WAN transport services. Non-network service providing (NSP) managed SD-WAN service providers [such as MetTel] are disrupting the traditionally NSP-centric sourcing model for managed WAN services, as enterprises can procure managed SD-WAN services as an overlay service from many providers that are not NSPs. The types of service providers that offer SD-WAN services but are not NSPs include system integrators, value-added resellers and pure-play MNS providers.
