What Does The Future Of Enterprise Networking Look Like?
Modern hardware has become much smarter and faster, including new multi-rate switches and next-generation Wi-Fi infrastructure. This has triggered a new hardware refresh cycle, which will result in new business opportunities, significant innovation, and high growth for many organizations.
Fremont, CA: As organizations seek to capitalize on the latest technologies, the rollout of 5G networks and the next generation of wireless technology may cause a shift in focus away from software and apps and toward infrastructure. When one combines this with the fact that AI and machine learning are making their way into the networking space, it appears that enterprise networking is about to undergo a major transformation.
What are the big trends presently dominating the networking space?
For many years, the industry's primary focus has been on delivering innovations that reside in the top layers of the network, namely applications, software, and other virtual solutions. However, we are now seeing a gradual return to investments in physical infrastructure, which serves as the foundation of any network. In addition, modern hardware has become much smarter and faster, including new multi-rate switches and next-generation Wi-Fi infrastructure. This has triggered a new hardware refresh cycle, which will result in new business opportunities, significant innovation, and high growth for many organizations.
Furthermore, technological advancements such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are making inroads into the networking space. New AI and ML-powered solutions, for example, can aid organizations in the fight against cyber threats through sophisticated behavioral analytics that detects unusual device activity, as well as automated remediation and containment that halt network-based cyberattacks before they cause any damage. This is especially important as the proliferation of IoT devices - and thus the potential attack surface for cybercriminals - grows
