What SD-WAN Means for Networking Management

Just a few years ago, enterprise network management was much simpler. Configuration changes were rare — most equipment was configured and left as-is. If any change was needed, long and strict change management procedures were required. Then, changes were executed in manual or semi-automated network configuration updates, sufficient to maintain reliability and consistent service levels across the organization. Fast-forward to today, and networks need to adapt to ensure user experience and maintain security of cloud-based applications. IT organizations…

Taking SD-WAN to the Next Level

A slew of rapid technology shifts driven by the explosion of cloud services has created tremendous business opportunities, yet many enterprises and large business networks can’t cope with these changes. Business application-focused requirements and evolving security policies require network operators to continually deploy configuration changes. The common approach of doing this – either manually, or using highly standardized configuration management databases, or simply replacing the complete device configuration, rebooting and hoping it will function –…

Software Defined Wide Area Network Orchestration: Take Control of your Network

The WAN: Then and Now The Wide Area Network (WAN) has been at the foundation of enterprise networks for decades: responsible for connecting people, applications and data across a large number of locations.  Traditionally, the WAN was relatively static and a “set it and forget it” configuration methodology was acceptable and effective. Management tools were simple and straightforward, yet limited. As an example, while studying for my Routing and Switching CCIE lab exam 15 years ago,…
