In the current world of cloud services and globalized business, an antiquated LAN won’t keep up. Next generation networks using software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) connect geographically-distributed employees, support mobile workforces, and are the key to stability and efficiency for all things data, voice and media. In some cases, the services designed to save you time and money won’t function properly without a sophisticated network. For example, VoIP needs a consistently adequate connection speed to ensure call quality. Next-generation networks make enhanced features possible.
SDN: Imagine attempting to manage the dozens, hundreds or thousands of devices connected to a network by way of each separate device. The more devices in question, the less manageable this task becomes. Through SDN, you can control all devices via one centralized point. Adding, updating or removing access points or permitted devices becomes a rapid process. Security benefits from this one-stop management method, as does network stability and performance.
NFV: Allowing centralized control of separate components, NFV is similar to SDN. This technology allows network functions to be extracted from each device into one storage point or server, providing for numerous advantages. With NFV, the company network can be scaled up or down easily, saving payroll expenses, ensuring that the most appropriate level of services is in place, and avoiding unnecessary cost. The flexibility of this solution enables fast provisioning of new services.
