from IT simplification to enterprise Wi-Fi excellence
Wi-Fi 6/6e and the Wi-Fi 7 to come | LAN Trends | Autonomous Networks
On October 18 and 19, we held our annual "Transformation of Data Networks 2024" webinars. We shared important insights on how a modern company can move from optimizing IT operations to creating an efficient WiFi network. This path requires timely planning, investment and commitment to keep up with the latest technology. Many thanks to our speakers and more than 150 participants - Baltic IT professionals!
KEY TAKEAWAYS & TRENDS 2024:
🌐 The 2023 business landscape continues to evolve with innovations in transformative technologies like AI, IoT, VR/AR, and cloud computing, Sustainability and Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) processes are now central to business strategies.
📶 WiFi advancements are racing ahead. As WiFi 6 and 6E take center stage, WiFi 7 is already on the horizon, boasting higher bandwidth, data rates, and enhanced user experiences, with applications in AR/VR, 4K, and 8K video streaming. The new Wi-Fi 7 standard (802.11be) builds on the previous Wi-Fi 6/6E standard under a common trend of iterative improvements such as:
📡 Alcatel-Lucent WLAN shines with its smart WiFi solution, Stellar, featuring a distributed control architecture for scalability and lower latency. OmniVista offers unified management for LAN, WLAN, users, IoT devices, and applications.
🔴 LAN trends bring both challenges and benefits. Top IT challenges include the need for end-to-end network visibility, resource constraints, and cost reductions. Successful network operations, in turn, reduce downtime, enhance user satisfaction, and offer simplicity through converged LAN/WLAN solutions.
🔌 Network Virtualization (NV) can combine multiple physical networks to one virtual, software-based network, or it can divide one physical network into separate, independent virtual networks. NV optimizes the use of physical resources by allowing multiple virtual networks to share the same infrastructure what leads to cost savings and better resource utilization. Virtual networks are isolated from each other, enhancing security and privacy. It enables rapid provisioning and scaling of network resources simplifying network management and allows for the dynamic allocation of resources based on changing requirements.
🤖 Autonomous networks are the future, requiring minimal human intervention, and supporting digital transformation. They offer unified management from Edge to Core, facilitating IT/OT convergence and network automation. With an Autonomous Network, IT leaders can now shift their focus to business, rather than building and running their infrastructure - for example, reduce IT workloads, improve user experience and ensure mission-critical operations.
