The global bandwidth prices have witnessed a significant reduction, as voice networks and internet services continue to improve in capacity. The current corporate landscape is leaning toward a digital workplace, therefore demanding better internet bandwidth to build a connected ecosystem with Cloud at the core, powered by unified collaboration, communications, and a flexible corporate infrastructure. Consequently, solution providers are introducing new technologies into the industry.
To start with, vendors are considering the optimal use of SD WAN with an aim of offering more flexible networking functionalities. Organizations are deploying Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) and Universal Customer Premises Equipment (uCPE) into their daily operations, thereby promoting an application-centric, hybrid approach and enhancing the efficiency of activities. In doing so, organizations are securing seamless Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPL) as well as robust 4G or Long Term Evolution (LTE) connectivity. Industry leaders are steadily adopting best breed suppliers in order to confront networking issues. In addition, Cloud-as-a-Service is also being leveraged with an aim to enhance visibility and overall performance for organizations worldwide. The best part, Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) powered solutions will become mainstream in the current year, promoting faster internet connectivity in workplaces. That’s not all; companies will also attain greater access to the 5th generation (5G) internet speeds, which is likely to offer employers faster delivery of results while employees reap the advantage of cloud flexibility, cemented by the functionality of accessing useful information irrespective of time and location. Added to that, solution providers are bringing in advanced wireless connectivity, which is likely to enhance the speed of data transfer, without compromising on the quality of data. This is helping consumers to enjoy a more transparent environment while accessing the internet.
