For all businesses that want to stay relevant in today's economy, an internet presence is required. The internet is also typically used to perform business to business (B2B) transactions (e.g. email, application updates, etc.). Additionally, if the business operates in multiple locations, a private network for internal company business may also be required.
Current Software Defined [SD] WAN network technology can enable a global private network securely over the Internet using the same low-cost connections that provide internet access.
As the number of connections and applications increases, so does the complexity of maintaining the network environment. The increasing demand for inter-site and global networking has created high demand for networking professionals that have knowledge of current techniques and technologies. Technical Architecture professionals are required to review new network technologies for applicability, functionality, and maturity to determine when piloting and adoption is appropriate for your organization.
