With just a glimpse of how the telecommunications and in particular the networking market has developed over the last year, it can undoubtedly be seen that a snowball effect is occurring as the markets and the technology within these markets are rolling and becoming larger and larger. So, the predictions are that 2020 will be a year of yet more change.
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.
First of all, my apologies to our international readers for the local nature of this post. That said, you may still be interested in reading about how, in a nation associated with parties, holidays and the siesta, there are companies offering highly-skilled technical work to young people upon completion of their studies. And more importantly, to know what they think.
As I have done in previous years around this time, I would like to take this opportunity to summarize some of the most important issues we have encountered in 2017. This year is proving to be a very interesting year for the telecommunications sector.
At the end of 2016, I remember writing in my post that we were going to enter the SD-WAN era. Well, the first Quarter of 2017 has finished and we can definitely say that the SD-WAN era has been launched! It has picked up speed considerably within the market and specially in Teldat as a company. We have introduced the SD-WAN solution on the HOME page of our website. However, there is much, much more to come in the second Quarter of 2017. (more…)
