A superior network is the foundation of any solution. And staying connected is more important than ever before. The right infrastructure offers a broad range of flexible and scalable network solutions to assure businesses are always connected to mission-critical applications. While reliable connectivity is certainly most important, moving your network management to the cloud can dramatically save costs in terms of reduced downtime, improved security, better reporting and increased IT efficiency.
How you manage your environment can reduce the amount of time your IT staff spends maintaining your network, freeing them to focus on more value-added projects. With a large majority of small and midsize businesses offering hybrid or remote work, you can also reduce the amount of time it takes to complete service requests and resolve issues remotely with streamlined problem resolution and troubleshooting. The right business network solution will support all your assets, including systems, applications and people.
7 Types of Next-Gen Connectivity for a Connected World
Enterprises today can enable network and digital transformation with SD-WAN. This next generation of wide area network (WAN) uses intelligent control engines to manage public and private network connectivity, resulting in secure, reliable WANs. SD-WAN optimizes IT infrastructure to connect multiple locations, users and applications over disparate networks and technologies in real-time, taking the fastest, most stable route at any given moment.
The secure access service edge (SASE) combines SD-WAN capabilities with network security functions, like secure web gateway, to support digital enterprises’ needs. It creates a single network that secures and connects all your endpoints, mobile devices, offices, IaaS, SaaS, PaaS and IoT devices into one global network.
Network as a service (NaaS) provides centralized management, visibility and control without the cost and complexity of controller appliances or overlay management software. It includes layer 7 device and application visibility, real-time, web-based diagnostics, and monitoring and reporting. It’s a networking model for delivering enterprise-wide area network services virtually on a subscription basis.
From single site to large, globally distributed locations, a broad range of flexible and scalable network solutions ensures businesses are always connected to mission-critical applications.
5. MPLS, IPVPN
Multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) and internet protocol virtual private network (IPVPN) set the standard. These networks offer the highest quality, secure inter-office connectivity available while ensuring your voice, data and video applications are performing seamlessly.
6. Network aggregation
Leverage an optimized and tailored solution by aggregating disparate networks, carriers, transports and equipment throughout North America to deliver a single cohesive, affordable solution that can be viewed and managed through one source.
7. Network infrastructure
Many organizations are moving to a primarily wireless network infrastructure (the hardware and software that enable network connectivity and communication between users, devices, apps, the internet and more). Businesses with a growing number of users find it easier to expand network access using wireless-enabled devices, instead of installing new cable connections like copper, fiber, coaxial or any other media solution that will provide high-speed, reliable data transfer and high performance.
