Rethink the network with Network Edge

Given the increasing importance of digital transformation, cloud services, IoT, distributed computing, and the enhanced connectivity they require, it is clear a new network architecture is required. Today the definition of “edge” seems to be a moving target but is generally considered to be anywhere data can be generated, collected, or analyzed. From a wide area network perspective, it could best be defined as the edge of the data center, cloud, or any remote location. In this paper, we discuss Network Edge, how SD-WAN is its central platform, and how it enables the networks of the future, today.
