Legacy networks can go only so far in meeting business needs for digital transformation. Older technology does not easily adapt to new demands, and achieving scale is can be costly. Often decision-makers have little visibility into the full extent of their network architecture.
Fully one-third of responders to a recent IDG poll cited the need to pay greater attention and allocate resources to improving or replacing infrastructure that includes networking technologies to include software-defined wide-area networks (SD-WANs).
Getting from here to where the most successful companies are, or want to be, can be facilitated with an SD-WAN solution. Software-defined networking technologies reduce costs, improve productivity, and make it easier and more efficient to get data to and from the cloud, data centers and to the furthest edges of the business. Software-defined networks (SDNs), SD-WANs, and network functions virtualization (NFV) change the way networks are built and redefine how services can be delivered.
In the software-defined-networking model, universal customer premises equipment can be readily deployed with centralized manageability and the ability to run downloaded virtual network functions (VNFs). That flexibility will more readily support digital transformation initiatives.
