Now our Christmas holidays are over (which we hope all our readers thoroughly enjoyed), the moment to begin once more is upon us. It’s possible that many people at this time of year experience a certain anxiety when confronting blank sheets of paper and the inevitable doubts about the future. Particularly so if you had a good 2016 or, at least, a better year than the previous one. In Teldat, however, this anxiety translates into contained expectation for an interesting and innovative year to come for our product ranges and organization.
Today, software-defined network technologies (SDN) can be applied to many more situations than initially thought (i.e., data processing centers) and are being used in the field of WAN to bring, over and above virtualization, resource optimization, flexibility and dynamism to the connectivity services for customers.
In my last blog, I wrote about the origins of SD-WAN and its benefits. However, these advantages are certainly not without their challengers and threats, which all interested companies should consider when analyzing the various options offered by the market.
I have written an article on SD-WAN for Seguritecnia, an online and print magazine that is very present in the private security sector in Spain. In said article, I explained the concept of SD-WAN and the security implications associated to this technology (as befits a magazine that focuses on safety).
Given the enormous interest in SD-WAN, I decided to give our blog readers the opportunity of perusing the contents of said article.
This may seem an odd title for a post by a communications equipment manufacturer whose portfolio includes a complete range of Wi-Fi products. But the truth is that the title refers to a photo that went viral of a bar sign advising customers to take advantage of the bar’s lack of connectivity and engage in good old conversation.
