The healthcare industry has evolved significantly in the last few decades. We now have much more information on what causes disease and how to identify a plethora of illnesses than ever before and providing assessment and diagnostic services to the general population becomes more and more complex. Technology quickly becomes an enabler of the health industry, allowing for connections between healthcare facilities, providing for the fast transmission and delivery of medical information, and allowing for doctors to connect to patients in easier ways. Telehealth (a HIPAA compliant telecommunications systems) has evolved to simplify a faster and more efficient way to…

The flexibility inherent in a cloud-delivered SD-WAN offers customers multiple deployment models such as Over The Top (OTT), a hybrid of broadband and MPLS or other existing transport, or fully broadband. While there is no one right answer for all, most will choose a hybrid architecture because of the investment in an existing MPLS infrastructure or for an additional layer of redundancy. Increasingly, customers are choosing to eliminate their dependency on the established backbone and migrate to a full broadband dependent SD-WAN platform. One such case is Stolt-Nielsen, a leading global provider of integrated transportation, storage, and distribution solutions for…

In 2016 I believe we started seeing the death of distance for Enterprises, with the acceleration of SD-WAN adoption. What an eventful year 2016 turned out to be! No, I am not talking about the political upheavals around the world or about Brexit, or that a sequel to the Big Lebowski was announced, eventful as they were. What…

Thanks to Chris Watterston for the above #2 best selling sticker on Sticker Mule! Since ‘tis the season to be jolly, it is akin to a kid who figures out – there really is no Santa, it is just someone’s Dad in a red suit. But rather than the downside of the revelation, for me, this captures the advantage of the Cloud revolution for IT in general, and SD-WAN in particular. Lots of businesses have moved their IT – data centers, applications and storage to the Cloud, and networking is just the fourth phase of that movement to the cloud. The…

Throughout living memory humankind has craved independence. As the 4th of July rolls around once again, IT managers still salivate over the seemingly ever-receding promise of liberation—straining against the chains of antiquated and static network architecture and infrastructure, CPE lock-ins, best-effort Internet links performing with substandard packet loss rates, and highly complex VPN tunneling barely achieving adequate security. Not to mention the necessity for bandwidth overprovisioning to ensure decent throughput, session and flow-based routing, backhauling SaaS traffic through a data center that doesn’t host the application any longer just because that is how the pipes have always been connected and…
