The single most important message we’ve been trying to get across in all of our previous blog posts is that Digital Transformation processes are not linked to technology itself, but to the manner in which we use this technology to boost business (cost saving mechanisms, revenue, customers, etc.). Technology is a tool that must be used to its fullest potential, but properly. Investing in technology just for the sake of it or doing it without having previously assessed its impact and the return on the investment, is useless spending.
2018 has shown us that many of the predictions made at the beginning of last year by relevant consultants and market analysts related to Cloud technology, SD-WAN, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and more, can be acknowledged today as correct predictions…. Indeed, we can also say that some predictions have been slightly slower than were expected and others have even gone beyond their initial expectations for 2018. The latter can definitely be said of SD-WAN.
Once again, we come to the end of another year in which Teldat has been able to reach many of the milestones that it had originally set itself. SD-WAN is now a total market and corporate reality. Not only have we had decisive projects in the SD-WAN area, but important market research companies have also positioned us as a leading provider in the global SD-WAN field – see this on our Home page. Obviously, apart from the relevance this has from a business perspective, we are very proud to have reached this position.
The explosion of cloud services brings the bulk of computational load to the servers located on the Internet, freeing up the end devices from having to do this. This new paradigm gives rise to more demanding network requirements, both on the Internet and in the domestic routers used for access. Today we will focus on the requirements of cloud-based video gaming services, which, although incipient, are becoming increasingly accessible.
Application-Aware Routing is a change to the way we think about how data packets should be routed through an IP network and is closely related to SD-WAN, Policy-based routing and the use of SLA’s – Service Level Agreements.
