The Rise of the Intelligent Network
Apr 08, 2020
In 2018, the global intelligent network market was valued at $2.5 billion. Now, its projected to skyrocket to $15.5 billion by 2026.
At QOS Networks, this rapid growth comes as no surprise. As a leader in edge-tech managed services, weve seen the demand for intelligent network solutions gather speed year after year. And as more and more organizations move to modernize their IT infrastructure, the need for greater automation, analytics and, ultimately, business intelligence will only strengthen.
Here, well take a brief look at the advantages driving the global rise of intelligent networks and what businesses can do to effectively implement an intelligent network solution.
How SD-WAN Enables IntelligentNetworks
Software-defined wide-area network (SD-WAN) systems allow for automated intelligent networks to run themselves, while saving businesses time and money. They further provide more flexible, agile, and securebroadband connections. A powerful aspect of SD-WANis that, through automation software, it can quickly deploy offsite operations. Traditional WANs are unable to facilitate such quick response time.
Administrators also have the ability to see what’s happening across the entire infrastructure through a user-friendly interface. The combination of wider network visibility and lower costs makes SD-WAN an intelligent choice for businesses looking to maximize profit margins. It additionally gives companies the opportunity to bypass the high installation and maintenance costs of MPLS.
Another reason companies are adopting more intelligent infrastructure is because it reduces complexity by providing simplified controls from a centralized location. SD-WAN also reduces labor costs and human errors since the automation can complete tasks more efficiently and accurately.
When it’s time to integrate new solutions with your network infrastructure, it’s best to plan ahead, and consider options, such as SD-WAN. All businesses will eventually face the challenge of upgrading to more digital solutions in the transformation to the next generation of networking. If your business relies on Big Data, then SD-WAN should definitely be a strong consideration.
One of the most valuable aspects of SD-WAN is that it generates a wealth of advanced analytics for decision-makers to study. This data can help eliminate waste and streamline an operation. It can also help managers track how employees are using resources so that decisions can be made on how to effectively maximizeproductivity.
