  • Interest in 5G wireless networks ramps up

    The ability for businesses to use 5G wireless networks is closer to becoming a reality as carriers continue to deploy 5G trials across cities in the U.S. and globally. While the technology that promises faster broadband speeds and enhanced data capacity is still in precommercial stages, 5G wireless networks are expected to transform how business is conducted around the world.

    In this issue of Network Evolution, find out how enterprises are exploring of the possibilities of 5G wireless networks and how they can prepare for them.

    Beyond 5G wireless networks, this issue looks at software-defined networking, and network managers share their reasons for choosing smaller SDN vendors instead of major providers like Cisco or VMware. A variety of software-based networking options are attracting enterprises that want to start their SDN evolution.

    In addition, the ongoing availability of new business collaboration tools and features offers end users multiple options to choose from, which can lead to overlapping features. Enterprises are faced with similar applications for things like email, messaging, video or conferencing, and IT managers have begun exploring options to consolidate these tools into a single platform. Here we look at best practices to develop a plan to help deploy unified communications (UC) tools and improve collaboration across the enterprise.

    Finally, in this month's Subnet, see how Durham County, N.C., is using network automation to create an efficient, seamless network experience for IT managers and users.

  • Data center interconnect market: Enterprises, providers fuel growth

    The data center interconnect market is poised for significant growth, thanks to a number of factors altering the IT landscape -- including the growing use of cloud services, the massive proliferation of data, the increasing adoption of hyper-converged data center designs and the evolution of network traffic behavior. In fact, some analysts at Ovum Research predict data center interconnect market revenue will experience a compound annual growth rate of 10.5% over the next few years, reaching $4.2 billion by 2019.

    As long as information generation continues to increase -- a virtual inevitability -- organizations of all shapes and sizes will find themselves in need of faster, more reliable, higher-capacity connections. In this edition of Network Evolution, we examine how demand from both service providers and enterprises for speedy, scalable interconnect links are driving upgrades -- whether from 1 Gbps to 10 Gbps, or from 10 Gbps to 100 Gbps -- and moving the data center interconnect market forward.

    Also in this issue, we explore Cisco's recent updates to the Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE) written exam, and consider whether those changes will help keep the certification relevant in the era of cloud, the internet of things and programmable networks. IT pros on both sides of the CCIE fence weigh in on the ongoing debate. We also head back to the classroom to find out how American universities are tackling the question of software-defined networking education, and what that means for the network managers of tomorrow.
