Modern data centers based on hyperscale, leaf-spine switching
architectures are growing so large and complex they are outstripping the
capacity of operators to engineer, configure and manage these networks
using traditional tools and techniques. As a result, data center operators
are looking for new ways to automate workflows, maximize uptime and
increase operational agility while reducing operating costs

Enterprise IT is changing. It’s evolving from a rigid, static, manually configured and managed architecture to one where connectivity is dynamic, application services are on demand, and processes are automated.
Enterprise networking is evolving along with IT. This has been evident in the past several years in initiatives such as enterprise digitization and as-a-service consumption models, as well as their
enablers, including BYOD, IoT and cloud. Add to this, all of the security implications of each initiative.
The purpose of this paper is to assess the switching requirements for next-generation campus networks incorporating wired switches, wireless LANs and WAN routers in an intuitive, intent-based network supporting cloud, mobility, IoT and digitization, with pervasive security.
Software Defined Networking (SDN) allows organizations to deliver networking with the same level of flexibility and agility as virtualization has allowed them to deliver other parts of their infrastructure. This free webinar will examine current networking architectures at a high level.

The existing upgrade paths from legacy PBX and ACD suppliers make it difficult for contact center executives to contemplate the future of customer service on their own terms. If your ACD-based contact center has become a road block for adding capacity or adding channels such as social media and mobile, you might want to think about making the switch to a SIP-based contact center solution.
SIP delivers two important advantages over legacy switching:
1. SIP is based on open standards, so you can choose hardware and software that is best suited for your environment.
2. SIP’s capability extends beyond voice to new media types such as mobile, social media and video.
SIP-based contact centers provide a roadmap to sophisticated features without the complexity and expense of traditional proprietary ACDs.
