RESEARCH PAPER: Campus Networking Transformation

By John Fruehe - July 5, 2016
Every business today, small to large, is compelled to be more agile and flexible in order to respond to business changes. Mid-market businesses—the medium-sized part of the market that is both large and fast growing—face a particular challenge in the campus networks that connect all of the end users in their workspaces throughout the organization, due to the complexity of rapidly scaling workforces, locations, and resources. While much of today’s network transformation focuses on the datacenter, there are also significant opportunities to drive better management efficiency and gain more flexibility in dealing with the campus network through a strategy that combines both the wired and wireless layers. By allowing these two network layers to be managed together, a more seamless and efficient view of the whole campus can be achieved. Mid-market businesses have an opportunity to address campus network modernization by focusing on better utilization of their networking assets and budgets as they refocus on employee productivity. Employees can enjoy better collaboration and increased mobility through a more robust campus network, and companies can realize better visibility, more manageability, and lower costs by taking a proactive approach to consolidating campus networks.
