As the IT infrastructure leaps from legacy and siloed to cloud-first and integrated , user expectations of subscriber-specific services are rising .

This is precisely what makes the network architecture indispensable to application performance and a predictable user experience .

In fact , it wouldn ’ t be wrong to say that evolution is to biology as the architecture is to networking . You adapt , learn and improve . Think of it as a map to your digital transformation initiatives that connects a global user base , applications and cloud services . The importance of getting it right is only becoming more critical for driving higher ROI and engagement .
Network architectures can vary significantly in terms of performance , complexity , security , and efficiency . Take , for instance , the so warecentric approach over the traditional WAN deployment .
