Digital Transformation Is Changing WANs

As digital transformation continues to spread across industries, Wide Area Networks (WANs) have to change, to embrace enterprise cloudification and transform Internet Protocol (IP)-based production networks.

Indeed, by 2025, it's estimated that 85% of enterprise applications will migrate to the cloud, with 74% of enterprises choosing private clouds over hybrid models.

As such, given the maturity of IP technologies — such as Service Routing over IPv6 (SRv6) and Flexible Ethernet (FlexE) — allied to the flexible deployment and converged transport advantages of IP networks, services that used to be carried by multiple Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH) production networks can now be carried over a single IP network, slashing Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for enterprises.

Challenges Facing WANs as Clouds and Networks Converge

Fast on cloud but slow on network

Slow Service Provisioning

Isolated clouds and networks, with slow provisioning.

Months vs. Minutes
Difficult experience guarantee

Difficult Experience Guarantee

Traditional Quality of Service (QoS)-based scheduling, with difficult Service Level Assurance (SLA).

Best attempt vs. Deterministic experience
More complex O&M

Complex O&M

100x greater connection scale, making manual Operations and Maintenance (O&M) increasingly complicated.

Manual O&M vs. Intelligent O&M
