What's New In Wired And Wireless Networking
The networking market has always moved quickly, with its vendors pushing out new innovations and offers the first chance they got, but the last two years have seen unprecedented change that couldn’t have been predicted.
The “network” used to mean the campus and the branch office. Now, it’s a hybrid story. The enterprise wireless network has to be all-encompassing. That might mean covering a small office as some employees return, the home office, pop-up locations, and users on the move. It could also mean the cloud – or realistically, several clouds – as well as premise-based environments covered with networking access points.
Network automation and cloud-based platforms are all the rage as companies and solution providers looked for new tools to simplify life for their IT teams and free up their day-to-day routines to focus on more strategic IT operations. New ways to connect, such as Wi-Fi 6E and 5G are ready for primetime, and the need for security, SD-WAN, and Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) solutions couldn’t be greater for businesses of all sizes.
