The New Generation Of Networking And Unified Communications Leaders

As corporate IT architectures evolve beyond the data center, becoming highly dispersed collections of on-premise, hybrid cloud and multi-cloud compute and data storage systems, the network technology that links all those systems becomes increasingly critical.

It's no surprise there is a new generation of startups developing leading-edge SD-WAN, 5G wireless and intent-based networking technology, platforms for building and managing hybrid cloud networks, and tools for delivering and managing networked applications across dispersed IT systems.
