SD-WAN is contentious and while some sections of the industry are rushing to deploy the new technology, many traditional telcos fear that it could prove to be so disruptive as to be an existential threat to their entire livelihoods.

What is needed is an SD-MANO solution which may, like the Yeti, or may not exist..
