Key IT Lessons Learned from 30 Years of the Evolving Enterprise WAN
While many look to new technologies to understand what the future holds, network engineers who have “been around the block” know that looking into the past can be far more valuable— “those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” Watch part one of a two part roundtable with industry experts. They'll discuss how the wide area network (WAN) has evolved over the years and the key IT lessons learned along the way.
Key discussion points will include:
- How has the speed of WAN links increased over the years? What’s the impact the speed increase has had on quality of service, on queueing, and on traffic engineering?
- How has the physical connectivity changed? Has it become simpler? Or more complex?
- How has thinking around things like cable routing, circuits grooming, deep buffers, and single points of failure changed over the years?
