Simplify Complex Network Tasks With Custom Capabilities

While often considered a roadblock to the cloud, the network is now ready for its chance at automation. This resource details why the network is the weakest link in the automation chain and explores how finding a foundation that allows you to create custom automations can increase visibility, lower costs, reduce risks, and much more.

  • Network-Powered BYOD - A Case Study in Simplicity

    BYOD has already found its way into most higher-education environments, meaning that campus IT departments must hurry to accommodate the demands of users who want to use their personal devices to connect to the network. And in some cases, these users are operating on five to seven devices, and the IT infrastructure is feeling the strain of having more devices connected to the network than users.

    This expert white paper provides insight into how campus-based IT departments can use cloud solutions to bring BYOD under control and truly unlock the productivity it promises while keeping the network secure. Read on, and you'll learn about BYOD cloud solution components, real world success stories, and more.

  • Focus: Campus local area networks (LAN)

    Whether a university buzzing with Gen Z students carrying multiple devices, who have never known a life offline or a large enterprise headquarters spanning multiple buildings with a Millennial workforce that expects the latest and greatest standards of connectivity, the demands now being placed on campus local area networks (LANs) are massive.

    And just as datacentres did in the past, campus LANs are coming to be defined more and more by virtualisation and software-based controls. Alongside this trend, LAN hardware continues to improve in its capabilities, as network managers try to keep up with the intense demand

    In this e-guide we will explore some of the key trends driving the market for campus LANs and ask how to implement one, find out how one user went about building a network from the ground up on a brand-new site, and look in-depth at some of the active suppliers in the market.

    First, we look at how to go about designing and implementing a modern campus LAN, taking into account advances in software-defined and automation.

    Then, we will take you behind the scenes at the UK’s University of Northampton to discover how the IT team was able to take advantage of a move to a brand new campus to deploy the latest and greatest networking technology in support of a new model of learning for a new generation of students.

    Delving deep into the infrastructure itself, tech evangelist Paul Ryan reveals how copper-based LANs are increasingly unfit for purpose in a digital business, and argues in favour of upgrading to fibre-based passive optical LANs.

    Finally, enterprise IT and network design specialist Andrew Froelich looks at some of the key suppliers in the campus LAN space, running the rule over technology from HPE, Huawei and Juniper Networks.
