MEF is working to define SD-WAN as well as interoperability challenges. (Pixabay) The Metro Ethernet Forum is building out multivendor SD-WAN use cases while also working on a common definition for the popular service. MEF’s Multi-Vendor SD-WAN Implementation project is one of the real-world results of the MEF 3.0 […]
In the eternal words of Yogi Berra, “If you don’t know where you are going, you’ll end up someplace else.” So how does this sage advice apply to the new world of application performance and hybrid IT? As the pace of application migration to the cloud continues to accelerate, […]
Enterprise network management teams are shifting their focus toward software-defined networking (SDN) , software-defined data centers ( SDDC ), and SD-WAN , according to a new report from Enterprise Management Associates (EMA). Shamus McGillicuddy, author of EMA’s bi-annual Network Management Megatrends 2018 research report, said this is the first […]

The increase in public cloud adoption has forced organizations to take a closer look at how they can take advantage of SD-WAN benefits. As more traffic moves out of the data center, software-defined wide area networks ( SD-WANs ) have the potential to help organizations curb rising network costs. […]
Versa Networks recently published a report that found software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) adoption is on the rise as a way to improve security. SD-WAN is a way of connecting and securing WANs, which are used by data centers and branch offices, across large-scale distances. Versa SD-WAN and SD-Security […]
SD-WAN’s main intent is to ensure that the end-users get the best possible application experience, irrespective of where they are hosted. SD-WAN makes your infrastructure more intelligent to access cloud-based applications and minimizes the effort and cost required to operate a network that can support a multi-cloud environment.
Many still consider SD-WAN as an emerging technology in the enterprise IT space. However, SD-WAN has started to gain traction among IT leaders. Organizations world-wide that are gearing up or are mid-way through a ‘digital transformation’ drive need to take a more software-defined approach to their infrastructure. IT teams […]
This is where IoT must rely on new technologies, like software-defined WAN (SD-WAN). The overall concept behind SD-WAN is to combine two or more WAN links with artificial intelligence, so data will traverse the optimal path toward its final destination. Network administrators primarily use a combination of internet broadband links and private carrier links, like MPLS. Once the WAN links connect the remote IoT sensors with the centralized IoT data repository, SD-WAN administrators can configure the WAN to identify critical IoT data, prioritize it and choose the fastest path from all connectivity options.
One common theme regarding failed internet-of-things , or IoT, projects tends to be a lack of planning and foresight put into the underlying network. So often, the focus is placed on the configuration and deployment of IoT sensors, what data they’re going to collect and where that data will […]
Organizations are applying software-defined technology to their wide-area networks (WANs) too. In addition to connecting and securing various branch offices, data centers supported by SD-WAN can significantly reduce capital expenditure (CAPEX) and operating expenses (OPEX). According to research firm IDC, the global data center SDN market will be worth nearly $12.5 billion in 2020, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 53.9% from 2014 to 2020.
Data center themes Data centers are evolving with the shift toward virtualization. As organizations seek to take advantage of the cloud to manage day-to-day business operations, many are wondering what sort of trends are taking shaping in modern-day data centers. To simplify matters, the following highlights some relevant themes […]
