It’s just an average Wednesday at the office when you get an urgent message stating “We have a new project location in Meereen and we need it online by Monday.” Being in IT, this translates to setting up a portable trailer at the Meereen project site, equipping it as a normal branch office with a way to access the Internet and cloud applications, be able to send and receive large files, and support VoIP phone service. Oh, and to add a wrinkle, you have no idea what types of transport options are available at the project location, who are the local carriers, or if…

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, the cloud is the network. It’s become more and more obvious as we see the dramatic increase in customers making the shift away from traditional systems and infrastructure to that of the cloud and the growth opportunities it offers. With its flexibility and scalability, enabling IT personnel to actually bring a vision of what the network should be to fruition. In our latest case study, we highlight Rentokil Initial, a global organization with 650 branch offices providing pest control and hygiene services. With Rentokil, people are protected from the dangers of pest-borne…

Today’s network looks and behaves very differently than networks of decades past. The days of transmitting just data or simple files across private and public networks is over and now big packet requirements that enable video and voice is commonplace. The tidal shift to cloud-delivered services and applications is the new norm and the corporate network must be enabled to support the exponential bandwidth requirements that accompany this shift. A staple of the network infrastructure has always been the branch router, installed at each remote location to route network traffic to other parts of the network or back to the…

Cloud migration… sounds nebulous? It doesn’t have to! Mobile or fixed device in hand, you don’t care where the application is as long as it’s there when you need it, on the device you’re using, and performs acceptably. The cloud is increasingly where the application is. And the cloud is—simultaneously—everywhere and nowhere. On the other hand, if you’re the IT professional, the cloud is a very definitive and unambiguous place, more often than not characterized by not being the place where your rigid traditional WAN is optimized to route traffic. Traffic running in a straight line from your branch office…

Years ago a colleague developed UC features for an airline call center and they didn’t want the phones to ring—no, they said quite confidently, just make it dead simple and have the software auto-answer the next call immediately when the previous one disconnects. A ringing call wastes the customer’s and the agent’s time. Shaving just a few seconds off each call compounded into literally annual savings of millions for the airline. So what’s with all this fuss about SD-WAN architecture? You really want it just to be quicker, easier, simpler, less headache, no truck rolls. No logging individually into thousands…
