Focus: Network virtualisation


Network virtualisation, the process of making networking infrastructure more agile by running network functions on industry-standard server hardware, has long-promised huge benefits for the IT department by improving network speed, reliability, flexibility, scalability and security.

While the end goals of virtualising an enterprise network are extremely attractive ones, as of mid-2017 it is clear that much work still needs to be done by the technology industry to make the case for why it makes sense for enterprise IT departments to do to their networks what they did to other aspects of their IT years ago.

Happily once the benefits of network virtualisation are laid out clearly and succinctly, securing buy-in seems to become a lot easier. In this e-guide we find out how virtualised networks can help enterprise organisations save money on their wide area networking (WAN) infrastructure, take some tips on strategy, and two virtualisation experts explain how network virtualisation still has some way to go to effectively meet evolving datacentre needs.

Finally, we will explore an example of a real-world network virtualisation project, and learn how communications services provider Manx Telecom built virtualisation into a major network upgrade project and why it has paid off in terms of business agility.
