Why Network Verification Requires a Mathematical Model

March 22, 2022
In this paper, we will describe how verification can be used in key IT processes and workflows, why a mathematical model is required, and how it works, as well as example use cases from the Forward Enterprise platform. This will also clarify what requirements a mathematical model must meet and how to evaluate alternative products.

Tunnel-Based versus Tunnel-Free SD-WAN

March 22, 2022
With the emerging need to connect users to clouds, traditional WAN connectivity using leased lines and MPLS is falling short. Today, the services are everywhere, not just in enterprises’ data centers, but also in public clouds, private clouds, and SAAS clouds. Users need the ability to reach the clouds directly, and SD-WAN efficiently provides this bridge.

Hybrid Cloud Economics
