Protecting Sensitive Data on Ethernet WAN: How to Reduce Cost and Complexity of Network Security
Universal connectivity is essential in today's complex business environments. Driven by the convergence of data, voice, and video over sophisticated and expanding networks, growth in demand for bandwidth is outpacing Moore's Law to supply sufficient throughput. To meet this increasing demand, organizations are looking not only for larger network pipes but also for finer granularity and more efficient ways to use existing bandwidth. As a result, more and more companies have been considering native Ethernet to carry data over Wide Area Networks (WANs). Ethernet delivers highly scalable granularity - from 1 Mbps to 10 Gbps - while providing lower per-port capital expenditures than traditional WAN technologies.
