Private Connectivity, Internet, Fiber, Managed Network Services, SASE, SD-WAN
Enterprise networking describes all the physical, logical, and virtual connections that connect a business’ users, applications, data, devices, servers, and systems. When optimized, it provides fast, reliable, and efficient access to all the resources that keep the business working. But all network connectivity is not created equally and what may work for one business may hinder another. From more traditional approaches like MPLS, to modern options like SD-WAN, there are multiple possibilities to consider.
Technology is rapidly changing, and every day brings new options for business to consider. There are so many possibilities to choose from and so many ways to leverage them all that technology and IT decision makers are often left unclear on the best choice for their requirements. Today, most enterprises have a collection of network solutions that they’ve piecemealed over the years and have inherited from earlier designs and initiatives.
Some of those technologies might be obsolete and could be preventing organizations from achieving true business agility that scales. Modern approaches to enterprise networking are made up of scalable software-defined connectivity options combined with orchestration tools that deliver visibility and insights into the network’s performance. Agile, flexible, scalable networks facilitate automation, seamless connections, and accommodate real-time capacity needs, regardless of the source.
Key Technology Solutions
Drive Operational Efficiency and
Agility with Enterprise Networking
With an optimized network, organizations can realize:
Higher bandwidth and availability
Networking solutions are unique to each organization depending on your current network architecture, business processes, use cases, and what business outcomes you’re striving for. Rapid growth, global expansion, virtual workforces, increased security threats, resiliency concerns, and the plethora of available cloud applications are all putting pressure on IT leaders running legacy network designs. Many companies are exploring SD-WAN and SASE solutions to give them more flexibility than traditional WAN services. Often these technologies can be deployed over existing WAN connections, whether they are Internet (DIA, broadband, fiber, LTE) or private (MPLS, private line), but if done improperly, could reduce a SASE or SD-WAN platform’s effectiveness. When compared to traditional network connectivity approaches, and implemented properly, software defined solutions like SD-WAN and SASE offer simplified management, quicker turnup, better application performance, improved resiliency, and cost savings.
Pandemics, the Great Resignation, and work-from-anywhere taught us that agility is just as important as efficiency in today’s networked world. Your network architecture should be able to change and adapt at a rapid pace without negative impacts to your business. Efficiency and agility can be accomplished with modern architectures and technologies, such as SD-WAN, SASE, and AI/ML network operations platforms. Driving operational efficiency involves improving network automation processes, faster deployment, scalable networks, end-to-end network visibility, and robust security.
