Modernize Your Network For Today’s Workloads

Modernize Your Network For Today’s Workloads

Traditional network architecture doesn’t meet the requirements of modern networks. Today, most companies have adopted cloud technologies for uses including  email, virtual meetings, VoIP solutions or for in-house developed and managed applications. Firewalls and access lists are no longer enough to defend against cyberthreats, and more robust technologies are required to protect data. As legacy wireless network architecture no longer meets the needs of the modern work environment, you need network modernization to create more reliable, agile and secure services.

Software-defined networking

SD-WAN revolutionizes the connectivity between data centres, cloud, head offices and branch locations. SD-WAN is an excellent solution for multilocation businesses, which need secure and intelligent data routing from one site to another or to the cloud. With SD-WAN, edge devices at each branch can intelligently and directly route the cloud traffic. SD-Branch extends the features of SD-WAN across the branch network. It reduces configuration update rollout times and enables IT admins to test the new configuration of the devices before production deployment. Additionally, a software-defined data centre (SDDC) delivers infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) through automating infrastructure configuration and operations.

Hybrid and multicloud networking

Most modern networks consist of private servers and virtualized servers in the cloud. This architecture is called a hybrid network. The multicloud network is a hybrid network architecture that utilizes services from more than one cloud provider. More sophisticated management and monitoring tools are required for hybrid networks and multicloud environments due to the complexity and scale of these networks. Migration to hybrid and multicloud architecture is a journey. Our experts can help you with the preparation and migration of your services to the cloud.

Mobility and IoT

Wireless networks used to be designed for coverage and were not as essential as the wired network. Nowadays, employees have at least two or three wireless-capable devices, and most of these devices can only connect wirelessly. The capacity requirement has become a significant factor in designing modern wireless networks.

The Internet of Things (IoT) features hardware programmed to perform specific tasks and can be part of an automated system. Examples of IoT devices are connected appliances, smart building systems, smart security systems, wearables and inventory trackers. IoT devices mandate better network security posture due to the nature of these devices.

Network security

Network attacks have become an everyday reality. Networks without proper security architecture are easy targets for hackers. A secure network may include many layers such as segmentation, micro-segmentation, NAC, secure access service edge (SASE), SD-WAN, secure email gateway, secure web firewall, next-generation firewalls, analytics engine systems, patching management tools, security information and event management (SIEM), secure-endpoint products and disaster recovery systems. The mentioned tools are essential but not enough. Network security and security architecture must be forged into the company's culture and regularly exercised/examined to succeed.

Network automation and programmability

Network automation is a broad term that includes automating the configuration, testing, deploying new devices and monitoring network services. Network automation helps businesses mitigate errors while making changes at scale and automating their response to these events. CDW can help you implement network automation and programmability solutions according to the best practices.

Network growth is a certainty, as are legacy infrastructure limitations

Hybrid work, new business models, different user experiences and additional operational and security challenges mean that legacy networks can’t keep up, accelerating the need for organizations to modernize their digital infrastructure. Aruba Networks can provide the technology enterprises need to manage, secure and operate their network efficiently for all connected users and devices, anywhere at any time.

Connect, secure and automate your digital business in a cloud-first world

Today’s IT leaders are preparing their workplaces for the future, including hybrid work environments where they must securely connect data, applications and users no matter where they are located. Cisco’s hardware, software and services allow customers to build a modern, intelligent network that supports hybrid work and accelerates digital transformation. With a modernized network, you’ll be able to increase visibility, simplify network management and integrate zero-trust security. You’ll be able to automate and assure services for better application experiences; streamline network operations and troubleshooting; and provide consistent and secure application delivery in today's multicloud environment.
 

Experience is the new uptime

The network for the next decade is revolutionizing enterprise networks with AI-driven automation, actionable insights and the agility plus elasticity of a microservices cloud. It applies artificial intelligence and data science tools to deliver optimized experiences and simplified network operations. Traditional wired and wireless LAN solutions are built on antiquated architectures that lack the scale, reliability and agility needed to address today’s diverse enterprise needs. Juniper provides a complete client-to-cloud enterprise solution that delivers outstanding IT and user experience.
