Rising urbanization has brought unprecedented levels of traffic and congestion to our major towns and cities. Departments of transport are battling to ensure their regions aren’t negatively impacted by increased pressure on their road networks.
On the frontline are traffic operators and planners. Every day, they face complex challenges as they attempt to improve traffic flow, minimize incidents, and unearth solutions to network issues.
This eBook explains how traffic planners and operators can use data to help overcome some of the challenges they face.
Organizations continue to adopt cloud computing at a rapid pace to benefit from increased efficiency, better scalability, and faster deployments.
As more workloads are shifting to the cloud, cybersecurity professionals remain concerned about security of data, systems, and services in the cloud. To cope with new security challenges, security teams are forced to reassess their security posture and strategies as traditional security tools are often not suited for the challenges of dynamic, virtual and distributed cloud environments. This technology challenge is only exacerbated by the dramatic shortage of skilled cybersecurity professionals.
Security has always been a fast-paced field, but lately the pace has been accelerating. Malware is rapidly evolving. The ways payloads are being delivered and deployed are changing, too. New attack tools and exploit techniques are appearing more regularly. It’s taking less time for them to gain widespread adoption. For all of those reasons, we thought it would be valuable to share additional insight into the threatscape we shared in the 2018 Critical Watch Report.

This document outlines how Insurance providers must optimize and scale for policy collaboration in a rapidly changing, omni-channel environment while shifting to providing new types of digital insurance. Additionally, shifting demographics is transforming interaction between insurance providers, reinsurers and customers. To address, Insurance providers must move to the digital edge adjacent to customers, clouds, partners and remote devices.
As software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) continues to become a mainstream technology, its relationship to WAN
Optimization (WANop) must be examined. At first glance, the two can appear alike, and are often erroneously
mentioned as synonymous technologies. A deeper examination however, will reveal two distinct and highly
complementary technologies with very limited feature overlap. This document aims to demystify the relationship
between the two, outline the market shifts that have led to a reduced WANop sector, and provide a recommendation
on deploying both technologies in a modern enterprise WAN.
As organizations prioritize digital transformation initiatives, many are finding that legacy
networks are holding them back. To support new business models, cloud adoption, and an
explosion in connected devices, modern networks must support interoperability across data
centers, multiple clouds, branch locations, and edge devices. Applications now run at every
point on this spectrum, and they are critical to businesses’ ability to win in hypercompetitive marketplaces. Yet, even as business success has become more dependent on
this new architecture, and the amount of data flowing across connections has increased,
many organizations still lack a unified approach to management, automation, and security
Digital transformation has moved out of the early-adopter phase and into mainstream adoption. According to the ZK Research 2018 IT Priorities Study, 88% of businesses now have digital
initiatives underway, up from 84% in 2017. The urgency of IT and business leaders is well warranted, as companies that master being digital will leapfrog the competition and be able to sustain
a market-leading position. Those that lag in their digital initiatives will fall farther behind and will
struggle to survive.
The key to digital success is having an agile IT foundation that enables businesses to adapt to
market transitions faster than the competition. However, there is no single technology called “digital transformation.” Rather, it is powered by the following four key enabling technologies:
The SD-WAN market is in the early growth stage of the product lifecycle. Key factors driving market adoption include: cost
savings from efficient usage of private and public networks, ability to optimize hybrid cloud connectivity, and applicationaware routing. Below is a summary of key research findings of this report:
For many organizations, the wide area network (WAN) infrastructure that connects an enterprise’s remote and branch
offices has not changed for decades. Over the years, organizations consolidated many regional data centers into a few
highly available data center locations which meant that remote locations had to connect to centralized applications over
WANs and all internet traffic went through these data centers as well. This introduced bandwidth constraints and latency
issues. The development in WAN optimization provided incremental and measurable improvement in WAN performance
and provided some bandwidth cost containment. However, that technology typically was only deployed at the most
problematic sites that struggled to achieve acceptable levels of performance and user experience. It did not solve all the
issues with WAN connectivity.
WAN infrastructure planning was limited to increases in capacity that were met by provisioning additional carrier MPLS

Developing an optimal arc flash protection strategy
for a given facility can be difficult due to the number of solutions
and system variables involved. Effective arc flash hazard reduction
is best achieved by establishing an overall system protection
strategy that accounts for safety and operational requirements as
well as system reliability and availability. An overview of available
solution categories and application guidance based on experience
in a wide variety of facility types is presented in order to assist
engineers trying to implement “safety by design” principles
to help deal with arc flash hazards. The approach provided addresses
the complexities of the trade-offs between competing priorities
and provides tools that help users develop effective protection
strategies for the unique circumstances in a given facility.
Keeping aging switchgear performing at optimum performance levels can be challenging. When it comes to the reliability of an electrical distribution system, it’s not a question of if a system component will malfunction, but when. Electrical equipment ultimately degrades and reaches the end of its useful life, no matter how much maintenance is performed. And, with the advancements in the design of the new circuit breakers, those with older technology are no longer considered sustainable solutions.
Plant managers and engineers must ensure continuity of operations and develop a plan to replace or upgrade aging switchgear. Facilities without a properly-implemented strategy put operations at risk that could lead to safety issues, equipment damage and/or downtime.
What is SD-WAN?
Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) is the application of software-based
network technologies to WAN connections to more effectively route all network traffic
between headquarters or data centers, remote and branch offices, and the cloud.
More simply, it is the method of leveraging the benefits of the cloud, the bandwidth of
broadband and existing enterprise-wide network infrastructure to more efficiently and
cost effectively transmit media (data, video, voice) and quickly access cloud
applications from every location in the network.
SD-WAN dynamically utilizes multiple available connections (MPLS, broadband, LTE)
to find the optimal delivery path for traffic across the entire network, shaping the
bandwidth as needed to eliminate jitter and dropped data packets, thereby delivering
an optimal user experience regardless of location.
The more sophisticated solutions will first attempt to dynamically steer traffic to the
best available link and if the available link
