Long live the SD-WAN.http://apjc.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/9948As early as 2011, analyst firms such as IDC were documenting the challenges with Wide Area Network (WAN) environments. In its top 10 predictions for 2011, IDC mentioned the WAN was reaching a breaking point due to the pressures of cloud and security requirements. More recently, Gartner said that “by 2021, more than 65% of WAN edge infrastructure refresh initiatives will be based on SD-WAN versus traditional routers, up from less than 30% as of 2Q18”. 2018-12-14http://apjc.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/9948/ Cisco SD-WAN Explainedhttp://apjc.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/9878The cloud is critical to digital transformation. But it has disrupted the traditional WAN architecture that used to link a fixed location to a data center, and now has to link multiple devices, users and things to multiple clouds. Learn how SD-WAN and Cisco SD-WAN in particular can help address these challenges that have arisen in a multi-cloud world.2018-11-28http://apjc.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/9878/ How Industry 4.0 is propelling Asia-Pacific’s competitiveness http://apjc.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/9662Manufacturing has long played a critical role in Asia-Pacific’s economy and overall competitiveness in the world.

For every dollar spent on manufacturing, another $1.81 is added to the economy. For every employee hired, four jobs are created in other areas such as retail or logistics. As manufacturers turn to digital to increase efficiencies, safety or productivity, they not only accelerate this value chain, they also create a whole new level of personalization from the power plant to the customer by harnessing the power of data. Catch this #CiscoChat Podcast with Ruma Balasubramanian, VP of Enterprise & Digital for Cisco Asia-Pacific and Japan, to know more about the power of digital manufacturing and learn from the experience of manufacturers in the region who are leading the way by adopting disruptive technologies to be more efficient, secure and innovative.2018-07-30http://apjc.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/9106/ Cisco to change the entertainment industry in Japan using ICT http://apjc.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/9074Cisco today announced, together with Sony Music Entertainment jointly promote efficient event management and new services for fans using information and communication technology (ICT). 2018-07-06http://apjc.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/9074/ Tractors, Cars, and the meaning of Intent-Based Networkinghttp://apjc.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/9035Intent-Based Networking (IBN) is a hot topic right now and as with many hot topics there is often confusion. Even though Cisco announced it a year ago at Cisco Live US, at this year’s event the most frequently asked question was still: “What is intent based networking?”. Part of the confusion comes from the definition of intent itself. Dictionaries say intent is the notion of “purpose or design”. Marketers will say that intent in the network means “the network knows what to do and it runs itself”. Network engineers, however, have a slightly different understanding and will tell you that the network has always been automated and self-driven. So, what's different and what's changed?2018-06-25http://apjc.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/9035/ That time I fat-fingered an IP address and brought the Network downhttp://apjc.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/8903As a network engineer responsible for a 40,000 user network, I once " fat-fingered an IP address connecting to the regional network gateway, cutting off the entire campus for 15 long minutes. Like me, I’m sure most of network engineers have a story of a time when a simple change had wider ramifications, so the guiding motto has always been “better safe than sorry". The problem with this approach is that demands on the network are increasing.2018-05-03http://apjc.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/8903/ Team engagement is tough: fortunately Cisco Webex has your backhttp://apjc.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/8888I’d like to make the case that to dominate in this new world, we need to focus less on digits, and more on people, communication and collaboration. 2018-04-24http://apjc.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/8888/ Fun is the new currency in the workplacehttp://apjc.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/8856With younger generations joining the workforce, more than ever FUN is now becoming a big part of a strong corporate culture, leading to higher satisfaction, innovation & productivity.

How about its software and apps – how often do you upgrade them? I know. All the time! The pace at which we do this is unbelievable, and that’s because it’s all so simple, fast and intuitive. Press a button and it’s done. Unfortunately, the same doesn’t happen in the enterprise space and complexity has often been blamed for it. The fact of the matter is that upgrading IT infrastructure in enterprise is still hard and slow to do, leaving many companies discouraged to make the necessary changes to keep pace with the demands of a digital world. Can we blame them? No, we can’t. But we can make enterprise technology more intelligent and, as a result, much simpler to manage and consume – just like in the tech consumer market. 2018-04-04http://apjc.thecisconetwork.com/site/content/lang/en/id/8805/
