Extraordinary times require ready responses, and it starts with having the right network

 
There is now an increased importance in getting the most from our software-defined wide area networks (SD-WANs) so that organizations can connect their end users to cloud-based applications wherever they are and whenever they need to.

How can you maximize the potential of high-speed connectivity between your employees, your customers and all your geographically dispersed locations? How do you make the most of your ability to fully-automate every day procedures and processes to increase efficiency and productivity?

What benefits can be derived from the flexibility that comes with being able to easily scale your networks in line with increased or unexpected surges in demand? How can you get greater value from your data? And, using recent global events as a perfect example, what can you do to ensure your customers can stay engaged and your remote workforces can collaborate and work effectively? How do you get the visibility to monitor performance and make sure that your enterprise network security is as robust as it can possibly be?

With Orange Flexible SD-WAN, you'll benefit from a cost-effective solution and an optimized end-user experience, all protected by Orange Cyberdefense solutions.


30%


In the next four or five years, the number of enterprises deploying Internet-based WAN is expected to grow to 30% and SD-WAN to reach 60% of enterprises.

Enterprise networks in the new normal

Enterprise networks in the “new normal”

In this paper, we examine the long-term impact on enterprise networks of new working practices brought about as a consequence of the pandemic – in the home and the office, across software-defined networks and connected objects.

How, for example, there will need to be greater oversight and scrutiny of standards, equipment and user behavior in the home office. How adoption of software-defined networks (SDNs) will increase and how cybersecurity will also have to step up to match the demand for remote working and the greater need for remote access.
