MELBOURNE, Australia, March 8 (Bernama) -- Cisco today announced new innovations built to bring visibility to IT's biggest blind spot: the wide-area network (WAN). Made up of disparate networks outside of the control of IT, the WAN connects employees to applications, no matter where those employees might be. The fragmented nature of the WAN means that IT often has limited ability to specifically determine problems and get real-time information. Now, Cisco is helping IT by providing the capability to forecast WAN problems before they happen, while quickly isolating and fixing issues when they do occur.
Over the past few years, the rise of multicloud IT environments has exacerbated the traditional complexity of the WAN and magnified its challenges. A recent IDC study (Worldwide SD-WAN Survey Special Report September 2017) discovered that almost 3 out of 10 organizations considered network outages to be a top WAN concern, with the same number stating they need better visibility and analytics to manage application and WAN performance.For the full text, click here.
