Building an end-to-end enterprise network with Aerohive Networks, Silver Peak and Dell EMC Networking.
Digital transformation and the rapid adoption of mobility, IoT and BYOD challenge IT in connecting and managing devices and users quickly and securely based on business intent. Legacy WANs are complex to manage and inherently incapable of supporting the business agility that is prized in the context of digital transformation, which compounds the challenge of connecting users to applications across the distributed enterprise.
The network connects users, devices and applications, and the ability to incorporate business intent like security, performance and availability requirement is critical in order to maximize business outcomes. For example, enterprise networks typically serve multiple applications, each with specific requirements for service level, security and topology. Therefore, to support digital transformation and business agility, the network must be application-driven with a software-defined approach. Since most employees and customers are served at branch offices, the ability to centrally define, apply and manage policies across the entire enterprise is necessary to deliver agile and reliable network services.
