As the bandwidth needs of businesses continue to grow exponentially year on year, it becomes clear that the bandwidth demands as well as the business demands of the modern digital workspace are setting the stage for the implementation. implementing new advanced technologies. These technologies are opening up new possibilities and further fueling the demand for adding smart systems to our daily lives and a greater reliance on technical support, both at home and at work. With software trends regularly emerging in the IT scene, digital services and people are increasingly intertwined to characterize everything new to the world of network technology this year. These recent advances are more than likely to disrupt existing operations and foster an era of digitalization and intelligence across the corporate sector. Let’s see what’s getting hot right now in networking technology – and how they’re going to sizzle by the end of the year.
5G in the spotlight
5G trials are nearing completion and telecom operators should be ready for non-autonomous deployments this year. The technology serves to improve not only the experience of mobile devices, but the entire environment of communication technologies. The greater bandwidth of 5G along with support for extremely low latency will help power breakthrough applications in the virtual and augmented reality and healthcare industries.
Look for amazing new applications in vehicle-to-vehicle communication and remote tactile feedback surgery, both of which require strong cellular support to unlock their full potential. Moreover, IoT gadgets are growing rapidly in almost all verticals, such as business, retail, homes, industries and others. Expect to see a huge increase in the number of systems connecting to still-active 5G networks over the next few years.
Network developments in edge computing
While cloud systems were a big hit earlier, right now it’s all about cloud-to-the-edge technology. Edge computer networks are the solution to several IT obstacles, including poor connectivity and overloaded bandwidth. Edge computing promises solutions that reduce latency by keeping all calculations close to system endpoints.
High-tech computing is a technological field that has grown considerably in recent years. Combined with IoT and AI, it has led to innovative methods, like the use of AI to secure IoT systems. And that’s not all: Deep learning is leveraged by data centers to improve network speed and reduce the amount of data transferred to the edge of networks. Edge computing networks will grow dramatically throughout 2019 as more attention is paid to productivity and cybersecurity.
Rise of decentralization
Regular architectures directed traffic to the data center to centralize Internet access and security. However, greater collaboration between vendors and partners and heavy use of the cloud challenged this model. The growth of direct cloud interconnection and cloud security services encourages many companies to take a decentralized approach to optimize their connectivity to cloud platforms.
Changing Perspectives on ML and AI
Machine learning and AI will continue to remain the favorites among vendor marketing teams. Unfortunately, the majority of these teams will not fully understand what either of these technologies is and the right way to harness their potential. Almost all network devices are currently instrumented, transmitting telemetry to large data lakes. However, our ability to come up with real ideas is still lacking. As with IoT, collecting data is easy, but it’s harder to convert that data into actionable information. Beware of more claims in 2019, but less quantifiable results.
Higher frequency of IPv6 implementation
The day when IPv6 will completely replace the standard IPv4 addressing system is still a long way off. However, the deployment of this technology continues uninterrupted, especially in corporate computer networks. IPv6 offers several advantages, indirectly or directly. Expanding the available IP address space to host unlimited devices makes it easier for ISPs to manage subscriber accounts. Other improvements associated with IPv6 include increased security and efficiency in handling TCP / IP online traffic. Home networks will require new IP address ratings, but that shouldn’t prove difficult.
More attention to network security
Network security is one of the main driving forces behind the rise of new IT services. As hackers and cybercriminals become more sophisticated, IT infrastructure is gradually expanding to cloud-based virtual platforms, leaving most customer and business data at risk of security risks. In addition to implementing standard firewalls and monitoring user access, companies need to implement more robust cybersecurity strategies that allow developers to consider innovative defense approaches. Why? Because one of the potential drawbacks of new network technology is the security holes exposed to hackers. That is why judicious cybersecurity measures are necessary.
Advanced wireless technology and the associated security and manageability have led many companies to embrace wireless. This eliminates the expense of moving, adding and modifying the fixed and wired LAN infrastructure. In addition, it promises greater reliability and resilience. Cloud-specific âas-a-serviceâ deployments and advanced monitoring tools and features are also deployed to provide increased insight and visibility into performance.
Cloud repatriation it’s when applications move from the cloud to the on-premises. This indicates that data centers have not yet lost their relevance. The majority of repatriation activity is focused on companies trying to find balance or balance. This does not mean that the cloud is losing its relevance; it was just a little over-exaggerated.
Intelligent automation is expanding
Businesses often spend huge amounts of money on network automation so they don’t fall behind. Sophisticated solutions and manual scripts cannot scale to supplement the dramatic increase in network demands. So expect an increase in smart and innovative grid automation solutions that manage devices, ensure compliance of hybrid and on-premises deployments, and automate services. The next generation of networks will include machine learning and AI to address security challenges and network complexity.
Importance of SD-WAN
The last SD-WAN systems help provide a more flexible network infrastructure, including support for VNFs and universal CPEs. This application-centric approach enables businesses to take advantage of a hybrid network transport approach that delivers efficiencies not only through traditional MPLs, but even 4G / LTE and Internet connectivity.
Networking technology: keep up with the changes
Communications and technology advance rapidly, and businesses must determine which new technology is ideal for their business. Implementing the right networking technology allows the organization to achieve the most benefits.
