High-Performance Devices Enable Software-Defined Networking
The COVID-19 pandemic and resulting shift towards working from home has prompted many enterprises to invest in upgrading company networks, IT infrastructure, and cloud services to better support an increasingly remote workforce. However, the sectors most affected by the pandemic include the banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI), governmental office, hospitality, and retail industries. Consequently, most organizations in these sectors decided to focus on extending their SD-WAN capabilities in order to support software-defined networking. This technology provided a solution that was not only commercially viable, but also offered additional cost-saving advantages.
Since all the enterprises have been suffering the supply shortage even during post-pandemic period. There are many networking innovations are centered around software to empower the networking appliances as edge system.
