Cisco Extending Intent-Based Networking to the WAN
How often does IT receive the complaint “the network is slow?” End users complaining about application problems can be frustrating, especially when it is not always the network that is the cause. When those complaints come from remote sites, eliminating the WAN as the cause of the problem is incredibly difficult, if not impossible. Troubleshooting time increases, as does downtime. We can do better.The race to cloud is creating a blind spot for IT
As the adoption of cloud applications accelerates, there is increasing pressure to change the way we design, deploy and operate the WAN. IT teams are turning to SD-WAN for a more flexible and easier to manage WAN architecture that can address the dynamic demands of the cloud. At the same time, IT is taking the opportunity to use internet connectivity to lower WAN costs and optimize the user experience.While the increased bandwidth and cost savings of using the internet for the WAN are attractive, this shift brings additional challenges that are not seen with private MPLS links. The Internet is made up of disparate networks outside of the control of IT and it is quickly becoming the largest blind spot when it comes to troubleshooting application issues.
