How COVID-19 became the tipping point for enterprise digital revolution

Despite the widespread availability of technologies that enable remote working and the remote management of operations and assets, it wasn’t until COVID-19 started shaking up large parts of the economy that enterprises really did rethink their current operational models. This included the way employees executed their daily tasks, how they work with business assets and how their outputs are monitored. The need to steer the business out of lockdowns and movement restrictions propelled most enterprises to work on this realization and saw overnight changes in company work rules, policies and most importantly, pushed the usage of Cloud and SaaS based applications to record levels.

Cloud native networks: gearing up for an agile future

At one time, businesses were content deploying their own IT infrastructure, adding more hardware and appliances as transactions and operations grew. They then saw the limitations of proprietary hardware in scaling growth and saw how cloud and virtualization gave them the computing resources they needed to deploy and run their applications on a flexible, on-demand model. Efficiency gains however, are not the only push factors for the adoption of cloud-native networks.

Enhancing network visibility for SD-WAN in the era of cloud and SaaS

Enhancing network visibility for SD-WAN in the era of cloud and SaaS

One of the most touted benefits of SD-WAN is the execution of network policies via dynamic provisioning of network services such as firewalls, load balancers and session controllers. With SD-WAN, centrally controlled orchestrators can now control network functions remotely, allowing network services to respond instantaneously to the type of application that is being delivered. However, to respond to the demands of the traffic and dynamically provision network services by application types, networks require network visibility through application awareness. Identifying an application, its attribute or its application family allows networks to become intelligent enforcing corresponding policies.

Tethering and the lure of data: How to make every byte count

While some CSPs have banned tethering altogether, others have threaded the path with caution by including extended terms and conditions in their service plan agreements. However, monitoring limitations and lack of transparency can render plan rules ineffective. Having real-time insights on tethering activity therefore not only allows CSPs to enforce what is agreed in their plans, but it also allows them to learn about subscriber sharing behavior and use this to expand their offerings for multi-device subscribers.
