Founder & CEO

Meet Steve Garson

In 2007, I started SD-WAN-Experts (at that point called MPLS-Experts) to help US companies communicate with their Chinese and Indian manufacturing facilities.  Two of my clients were rolling out their ERP systems in China and found that their new networks were impeding operations–an unexpected and undesirable problem. We helped them install a high quality MPLS network to eliminate the packet loss and reduce the latency that is found on the internet.

Much has changed since then. Frame Relay is no longer and MPLS has given way to SD-WAN, but we still remain the leading specialists in the procurement and roll-out of Wide Area Networks. We now serve companies worldwide with global facilities, large retail chains, as well as small domestic companies.

As Chief SD-WAN consultant, I lead every engagement.  With experience as a COO of varied companies, I have the ability to appreciate the financial implications the WAN.  As the writer of the popular NetworkWorld column “Ask the WAN Expert”, I’ve developed the reputation as the “go-to” expert on designing and evaluating SD-WAN networks. 

Our staff of seasoned and certified network engineers are available to troubleshoot your present network or assist in the configuration and management of your new network. We offer the answers that might be a challenge to obtain from your carriers or vendors. We have direct relationships with all the best of breed software, hardware and managed solutions to satisfy the network and data center requirements of even the largest companies. Plus we have unmatched insights into all of the SD-WAN technology providers. If you are looking for personal service and results you can count on,  give me a call and put the Experts to work for you.
