    With new IEEE Ethernet standard, old cables learn new tricks

    The new IEEE Ethernet standard offers some much-needed flexibility for network managers trying to keep up with skyrocketing bandwidth demand while working under long refresh cycles that prevent frequent rip-and-replace upgrades. With 802.3bz, or NBASE-T, switches, such organizations can give their existing CAT5e and CAT6 cables a shot in the proverbial arm, raising bandwidth from 1 Gbps to 2.5 or 5 Gbps. The IEEE Ethernet standard also allows for a degree of "futureproofing," letting network managers scale their bandwidth as the need for it grows. This edition of Network Evolution examines these and other use cases for the new IEEE Ethernet standard, with on-the-ground stories from early adopters. We also explore the factors preventing some network managers from embracing NBASE-T quite yet.

    Also in this issue, we look at the rising popularity of managed network services, from security to software-defined WAN. We'll tell you what you should know before subscribing.

    And finally, find out how cutting-edge technology is transforming the sports venue into a major home-field advantage. In the age of Pokémon GO and Snapchat, the stadium network is the new most valuable player.

  • Best video conferencing strategy: One size doesn't fit all

    For a long time, room-based video conferencing systems were the de facto choice for many enterprises in terms of quality and affordability. Early telepresence suites were rigid and expensive, and desktop video didn't have the best reputation for providing an enterprise-grade experience.

    But room-based systems had their own limits, which became more apparent as enterprises embraced mobility, cloud and more distributed architectures. However, as the quality of all types of video conferencing has improved, costs have gone down, and software-based systems emerged, enterprise video conferencing is more flexible than ever. That's why the best video conferencing strategy today is one that doesn't rely on a one-size-fits-all approach, but rather allows for a mixture of different types of endpoints to match user needs.

    In this edition of Network Evolution, find out how enterprise IT pros are diversifying their deployments to get the most out of their investments and the best video conferencing adoption rates possible.

    Also in this issue, learn more about what it takes to run a network where wireless is the primary means of connectivity for end users. Network engineers share their experiences, the challenges they faced and what the move has meant for their businesses. We also take a look at career opportunities for networking professionals -- namely, how to figure out whether working for an enterprise or a service provider is a better fit for you.
