- Business Outcomes
The foundation of your company's operations is the network. It delivers applications to your users, manages your data, allows your staff to communicate with one another, with customers and with external stakeholders.
The right enterprise network will fuel your growth and support your future digital transformation plans and whilst the basic elements of your network haven't changed, switching, routing, wireless and security, the way these networks work, most certainly has.
The enterprise network has evolved, from simple switching, routing and wireless into an intelligent engine that drives the whole business.
The introduction of software-defined networking (SDN) was a huge leap in control and automation. SDN moves control away from individually configured devices towards a central console, where corporate policies are pushed out to all devices.
Intent-based networking (IBN) is the next step towards network automation. Using machine learning and AI, IBN is a new way of thinking about enterprise networks. Instead of manually configuring the network, network managers set high-level business policies that align with the organisation's strategy and goals. The network orchestration software then converts these into network policies automatically. Following that, the network is proactively monitored, with continuous data collection and machine learning allowing the network to retain its target condition at all times.
Both IBN and SDN are the future of enterprise networking, automating network provisioning and offering great benefits to an organisation. As an enterprise network provider, Advatek will be able to advise you which approach will work for you.
Traditional networks lack automation that spans the entire network, forcing customers to spend significant time managing their networks adding to the total cost of ownership.
Advatek deliver business and technology outcomes with a commitment to service that is second to none.
The positive impact of networks that are both agile and customisable isn't just noticeable on day one; it's a long-term advantage.
