Preventing Costly Network Outages in Today's Mobile and Cloud World
Duration: 60 minutes
Do a quick Google search on "network outages" and you'll see how they have affected and continue to affect companies of all shapes and sizes. These stories illustrate how network outages hit the business hard; lost revenue, impacts to brand, customer satisfaction, employee productivity losses…this list goes on.
Why are network outages happening more frequently?
That answer is rather simple. The world has changed and everyone needs to connect ANY TIME, ANY WHERE, ANY PLACE from ANY DEVICE. Enterprise Networks are no longer static; changing to support cloud, virtualization, mobility, increased data volume, wireless connectivity, video conferencing, VOIP, cameras, and other non-IT devices. This phenomenon is putting great pressure on the network.
Up to this point, the network infrastructure is what we all have taken for granted because it's like the wiring, plumbing, heating, gas lines, and water lines in our house. We don't see it, we kind of know it's there but without it, life just doesn't work the same.
