Ultra-High-Speed Lossless Networks Opens the Door for AI

AI Demands New Network Capabilities Artificial Intelligence (AI) is driving the need for high-performance distributed computing and high-speed distributed storage using Solid-State Drives (SSDs). The traffic model for efficient AI training requires very high network throughput, and storage networks based on Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) or Solid State Device drives (SSDs) add a low-latency requirement […]

VPN: The End of an Era?

In a day and age where the importance of securing communications is finally gaining the recognition that it’s deserved, too many enterprises are still looking at traditional VPN’s as the best means to handle access and interconnection. While some may still be tied to existing implementations by regulatory constraints, most could gain additional measures of […]

Software-Defined Security – Natural Affinity with SD-WAN Integration

Virtualized WAN services are much like any other software application, in that SD-WAN services must be secure. Except in the case of SD-WAN, VNF software also has to secure the “payload” of the packet, which increasingly is a cloud – or SaaS-based application. SD-Security is a crucial factor in the overall SD-WAN value equation in […]

How Operations Makes a Difference to SD-WAN

Monitoring and operating a global SD-WAN requires the right skills and resources, opening up the market for managed SD-WAN providers. After design and rollout, it’s mostly in 24×7 monitoring and Operations where managed SD-WAN needs to score high to satisfy the steep demands of digital business stakeholders. Automation can boost Operations significantly. But it’s not […]

5G Network Slicing and Enterprise Networking

One of the most compelling aspects of the 5G Network architecture is called “Network Slicing”. This will allow edge connections to join a specific network for a specific purpose. The networks will be mobile and ad-hoc, allowing connections to come and go. This may change the entire concept of wide area networking with fixed 5G […]
