The future of business networks unfold with the next-generation branch

Things used to be simple. 80% of devices were wired and 20% were wireless. Now, the trend is reversing, and that’s changing how people access data, which in turn is changing the demands on the network.

BYOD, CYOD, mobility and working in the cloud are not only growing in acceptance, but becoming commonplace. They are happening. So let’s talk about how Dimension Data helps businesses with that.

The problem with this branch: With the wireless shared among everyone, it’s not enough to support a mobile workforce. When many devices depend on it, much more bandwidth is required. And, preferably, they want to get this without having to upgrade everything.

What we’ll do is give their branch a new backbone. A better, faster switch to front it, connected to better, faster wireless. The result: A branch that is ready to handle the rising number of devices in the workplace, minimising the need to  touch the existing setup.
