Aruba’s new NetInsight solution uses artificial intelligence and the cloud to improve Wi-Fi troubleshooting and ensure Wi-Fi performance.

There’s no question that Wi-Fi networks continue to grow in importance for most companies. Workers rely on it to do their jobs, students are being educated on mobile tablets, doctors are pulling up records at a patients’ bedside, and millions of Internet of Things (IoT) devices are now being connected to Wi-Fi.

Wireless is no longer the connection of convenience — it’s mission critical, and a poor-performing wireless network means a key process is likely to fail.

Deploying an SD-WAN can seem daunting. Here’s how to break it into smaller, simpler steps.

Rarely do I have a conversation about networking when the topic of software-defined WANs (SD-WANs) does not come up. It’s far and away the thing that network professionals care most about, even ahead of data center SDNs.

In a data center, enterprises can steer people out of problems as there’s always an abundance of experienced engineers locally available to tackle any issue big or small. That luxury does not exist with the WAN because branch offices can be scattered across the globe and often, the best one can hope for in terms of a local resource is a branch administrator or someone who can check lights or confirm things are plugged in and powered up. Also, for many geographically distributed organizations, the WAN is their business – so having an agile, dynamic WAN that enables applications to perform better is a top priority.

Cisco has a diverse corporate social responsibility program, and now it’s focusing on ending homelessness in its own backyard with an investment in Destination: Home.

Cisco is well known for many things. It’s the world’s largest networking vendor, it has typically been the bell weather for IT spending, as it’s often predicted upticks or downticks in spending before other vendors, and its ability to catch market transitions has been remarkable, which is why it has a market leading position in so many technology areas adjacent to the network.

ThousandEyes’ monitoring of broadband performance enables network professionals to make an educated decision before moving to a broadband-based SD-WAN.

A decade ago, if I had asked a network manager to consider using broadband to connect branch offices, he would have looked at me as if I had a second head. Times and opinions change, though, and broadband is now as viable as MPLS or any other network service.

The catalyst for this has been the rise of software-defined WANs (SD-WANs). Their multipath capabilities and network optimization make it possible to use broadband for business connectivity, and organizations of all sizes have been jumping aboard this trend. One of the challenges that remain, though, is that not all connections or types of broadband are created equal.

As a sports fan, there are many events that I look forward to every year.  There’s the Super Bowl, NCAA College Football Championship game as well as the playoffs for MLB, NHL and NBA.  However, these all have one thing in common – they’re generally played on weekends or weekday evenings so people can enjoy them at home.

Major League Baseball implements Mitel-based private cloud to deliver consistent leaguewide communications.

Every industry is being impacted by digital transformation. The ability to improve the experience of those who interact with organizations is now a top priority for organizations of all sizes in almost all verticals. The first step in digital transformation is to modernize the underlying infrastructure, since this will bring the necessary levels of agility, scale and resiliency required to fuel digital initiatives.

Huawei rolls out its Intent-Driven CloudCampus to simplify network operations, improve security, and reduce operational overhead.

The concept of intent-based networks (IBN) has been around for the better part of half a decade, but it’s really only come into its down in the past couple of years. The vision of a “self-driving” network had appeal but was largely science fiction.

However, over the past couple of years, we have seen this vision turn into reality with several networking vendors coming to market with products that work. Many of the use cases are still fairly basic, but the foundation has now been laid and intent is where the new battleground for networking vendors will be fought.
