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.
What are the benefits of SD-WAN? You may have heard a lot about this network. Indeed, in our blog we have written various posts on SD-WAN from different perspectives, but I believe that at this moment in time it would be interesting to review the benefits that this network can bring a company or organization.
We are approaching the end of Q1 in 2018 and for various reasons across the world, I believe that in the coming days many of our readers will probably be taking a short break. Whether it’s because of traditional festive holidays that are coming up in many parts of the world or because of the change in the seasons. So, this is a great moment to pause and think how 2018 has progressed so far.
In my opening blog post this year I wrote about the many issues the market seemed to indicate would be important in 2018. Obviously, I mentioned SD-WAN technology, 5G and Big Data, and I also talked about Artificial Intelligence (AI) and a few others. However, there is one area that I did not mention, which is intent-based networking (IBN). Perhaps it may be early to call 2018 the year of intent-based networking, but some important analysts have said that this is one of the next big things to come!
