Composable fabric: Network fabric for a composable infrastructure

In today’s digital world, change is constant and driven by some very traditional tenets—including the need for faster, more reliable, less expensive, and easier-to-use data center infrastructure and applications.

As a result, many enterprise data centers are embracing the concept and practice of infrastructure composability. But with composable infrastructure comes the demand for a composable network fabric to support the change in workload traffic.

Learn how you can get started with composable infrastructure in this white paper, which covers:

  • The evolution of data center infrastructure and cloud adoption
  • Fundamental networking role of composable fabric
  • Operational principles of composable fabric 

These are also closely related to: "Category 7 / Class F Network Cabling: Advancing Speeds and Convergence"

  • SD-branch: Everything a network pro should know

    A most challenging aspect of branch network operations is the need to provision, manage and operate a complex array of distinct IT elements, or boxes, at the branch.

    Since business agility requires many organizations to operate more branches or to rapidly provision branch connectivity in new locations, an increasing number of organizations are implementing SD-branch.

    The SD-branch combines most branch networking technologies onto a single platform and offers improvements in terms of rapid deployment, integrated security, and centralized monitoring and management.

    Access this expert buyer’s handbook to learn more about SD-WAN, and explore what you should know before implementing the technology in your branch locations.
