Digitalization is on the advance: Many companies now rely on software-defined wide area networks (SD-WAN) for connectivity at their company locations. Analysts expect the SD-WAN market to grow even faster in 2021 and 2022. The next five years are expected to see an average annual growth rate of 24 percent in global sales. This is […]

As a result, companies are now prohibited from using […]
Unpack, plug in, connect, and the cloud takes care of the rest. What sounds like a dream to any network technician or IT admin can actually be a reality when commissioning and rolling out devices on the network. The solution: “Zero-touch deployment“.
Years back in the early days of wireless LAN technology, Wi-Fi installations were only used selectively. Managing those networks was relatively easy as they often consisted of only one or a few wireless devices. But Wi-Fi quickly became a key technology in connecting devices and people all over the globe
In our ever faster moving world of interconnectivity of everything and the all-encompassing digitalization and automation of workflows and business processes, we expect IT networks to follow suit.

Take a look at the leading network technology trends for 2017 and you simply cannot ignore the dominance of “digitalization” or, as some are calling it, the “age of digital transformation” we are currently going through. It seems as if everything is going “digital”, be it in production, services, processes or applications.
Guest Post by LANCOM Systems Founder Ralf Koenzen about the growing importance of software-defined-networking: Anybody who follows developments here at LANCOM will know that, since 2014, we have intensively been working on the way networks will look in the future. There is a background to this effort:
As hard as it may be to predict the future, when it comes to networking technologies, one thing is for sure: The future is wireless! According to a study by the New Jersey Institute of Technology, by 2019 only 19% of Internet traffic will come from wired devices, while 81% will arise from wireless ones. […]
