Frost & Sullivan review the limitations associated with a single-provider approach to MPLS networks and its impact on the enterprise. They examine Virtela's Global Service Fabric - a multi-carrier network approach that provides a best-of-breed global MPLS network solution.
Intent-based networking is the difference between a network that needs continuous attention and one that simply understands what your organization needs and makes it happen. It’s the difference between doing thousands of tasks manually and having an automated system that helps you focus on business goals. Cisco® Digital Network Architecture (Cisco DNA™) is your team’s bridge to an intentbased network. It is an open, extensible, software-driven architecture that accelerates and simplifies your enterprise network operations, while lowering costs and reducing your risk. Only Cisco provides a single network fabric that is powered by deep intelligence and integrated security to deliver automation and assurance across your entire organization at scale. Cisco DNA gives IT time back from time-consuming, repetitive network configuration tasks so you can focus on the innovation your business needs. Cisco DNA automation and assurance are built on a Software-Defined Networking (SDN) controller, ri

Intent-based networking is the difference between a network that needs continuous attention and one that simply understands what you need and makes it happen. It’s the difference between doing thousands of tasks manually and having an automated system that helps you focus on business goals.
Cisco DNA is the open, software-driven platform that turns vision into reality. Virtualization, automation, analytics, and cloud, all in one architecture.
Organizations don’t know what’s going on inside their networks, and that’s costing them real money. Deploying an intelligent recording fabric with guaranteed 100% packet capture, accuracy, and storage is fundamental to solving the problem. But how do you embrace the new paradigm? To get started, create a list of the system criteria that are mandatory to delivering reliable and complete visibility information to your engineers, so you can be sure their decision-making is on target.
The impact of network performance problems on worker productivity has become a serious business risk. To mitigate it, organizations need to strategically embrace a network recording infrastructure that provides them with accurate, network-wide visibility. Only accurate visibility will empower them to slash maximum and mean response and repair times and keep network-reliant business applications and processes running.

An intelligent, searchable recording fabric with 100% accuracy sounds pretty useful. But can you calculate a solid ROI to justify it?
We all know intuitively that there are substantial bottomline benefits to reducing unplanned network downtime and improving the management of corporate risk. It follows that it also pays dividends to free up highly skilled Tier 1 and Tier 2 engineers to handle resolving the most difficult and costly network issues while using less expensive personnel to handle easier ones.
But justifying a network investment on a soft, intuitive argument like this alone doesn’t usually suffice. And, depending on what industry you are in, the cost savings potential will vary. At the high end, in many financial and brokerage institutions, a minute of downtime can cost the company millions of dollars. So being able to shave even a single minute off network downtime with a pervasive monitoring tool represents an immediate recovery of the fabric investment.

We all know intuitively that there are substantial bottomline benefits to reducing unplanned network downtime and improving the management of corporate risk. It follows that it also pays dividends to free up highly skilled Tier 1 and Tier2 engineers to resolve the most difficult and costly network issues. That way, you can use less expensive personnel to handle the more common, numerous, and easily resolvable problems.
But justifying a network investment using soft, intuitive arguments like these alone often doesn’t suffice in an economic climate where budgets are closely guarded and business cases for procurements are mandatory. And depending on what industry you are in, the cost savings potential and payback will vary.

High performance for modern data center network fabrics, scalable deployment, and integrated inspection for physical and virtual environments. Next generation network security for your next generation data center.
The arrival of virtualization, cloud computing, and mobility has strained data center networks—and IT staff—like never before. This Market Spotlight explains how data center network fabrics provide a foundation for automated provisioning, configuration, and management of network-based services in a new era of IT agility.
What is the key benefit of SD-WAN?
To provide seamless access to digital services for end-users.
But IT is more distributed, fragmentary, and dynamic than ever, with hybrid apps, hybrid networks, and remote and mobile users everywhere.
Hardware-bound legacy networks can never fulfill the promise of seamless access. Taming the chaos of today’s IT requires a new approach to networking.
This is the promise of software-defined wide area networks (SD-WAN)—the ability to use plain-language business policies to automate and orchestrate all the components of digital access.
Read this white paper to learn how SD-WAN lets you:
• Manage centrally from a cloud console with a comprehensive view of your connectivity fabric that spans and unifies datacenter/cloud apps, branch/mobile users, and enterprise/cloud networks.
• Orchestrate globally using business policy-based automation to define quality of service and access privileges for all apps/users.
• Deploy locally with zero touch via automated
The reference architecture (RA) design described in this paper combines HP ConvergedSystem 700x and Red Hat® Enterprise Virtualization, the open source choice for virtualizing workloads. At its core, the RA provides a foundation for building a high-performance Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization platform that has been optimized to consolidate and provision hundreds to thousands of workloads while providing extremely high availability at all levels – from the underlying network and storage fabrics up to the virtual machine (VM) layer. Pre-configured to meet a range of business needs, HP ConvergedSystem 700x offerings can be easily and rapidly deployed to support a variety of virtualized application environments. HP does all the work, using balanced building blocks of servers, storage, and networking, along with integrated management software and bundled support. Read this technical whitepaper to learn more.
This document describes enterprise virtualization today and the anticipated uses of this technology, particularly leveraging the capabilities provided by widespread adoption of 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) as a single, converged network fabric.
