KaaS Series: Breaking Down Network as a Service (NaaS)

Organizations have taken advantage of nearly everything As-A-Service for infrastructure components in the past decade, except for networking. It has been the last frontier for this consumption model due to the on-prem necessity and use case. However, it has finally started to emerge this year, but how does that work? Is it really pay for what you use and elastic as we expect from As-A-Service?

Join us for a brief discussion around Network as a Service (NaaS), and then we’ll open it up for “ask me anything.”  What you’ll take away from this session:

  • What is Network as a Service (NaaS)? And are there different models?
  • Key considerations around NaaS
  • Does NaaS mean SDN?
  • Benefits to NaaS
