Evolving Enterprise Network Architecture
- The enterprise network is being transformed by cloud computing, BYOD, multimedia over IP and pervasive Wi-Fi. These technologies are still relatively early in the adoption cycle, but we can see the direction they are taking. But other, arguably more fundamental changes in network architecture are in the pipeline, driven by the adoption of IPv6, very-high-speed Wi-Fi, the increased penetration of consumer technologies and software-defined network architectures. This talk will touch on these areas, drawing on the experiences of early-adopters of new WLANs with a dash of medium-term vision. It will pose questions for network architects looking out several years, and hopefully provide some of the answers.
