The rapid evolution of networking technologies and the speedy adoption of mobility by consumers are pushing organizations to upgrade their network infrastructure swiftly. In this movement toward the amalgamation of networking and mobility, various technologies are proving beneficial in enabling seamless connectivity and compute-ability both at the core systems and at the edge devices.
Continuous technology innovation is turning over a new leaf in the networking world. Cloud computing is one of the few aspects that are playing a pivotal role in redefining the current networking paradigm. Apart from being cost-effective and reliable, cloud computing enhances the global accessibility of the applications running across multiple networks. Not to mention, Software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) continues to gain popularity. The software-driven approach to networking is driving digital transformation projects that witness the coming together of cloud, big data and analytics, and mobility. As the need for visibility, flexibility, and ease in network configuration grows, intent-based networking is allowing organizations to define their networking structure and how it should perform. It alerts the network control system when the network’s operation deviates from the intended design characteristics, bolstering network security. Several organizations are increasingly integrating these technologies into their infrastructure to strengthen their networks. Adding credence to these developments is the emergence of companies that are providing end-to-end networking solutions. From gleaning customers’ needs to designing networking solutions for regular tuning of its performance.
