The Elastic Infrastructure Working Group developed the SD-WAN market and is now focused on developing the playbook for networking in the post-Covid world.


With Remote Workforces (RWF) staying remote and large corporations selling campus and headquarter facilities, etc., a new set of networking requirements has emerged from data center to multi-cloud connect to home office to IoT. Zero trust security, 5G, multi-cloud networking, SASE, edge computing, smart NICs, network services as cloud-based overlays, etc., are all coming together to deliver a more agile and elastic infrastructure. This ONUG Working Group is charting the course of how to think about networking in the post-COVID world.
