Tomorrow's local-area network will be the plumbing for everything business leaders want to do, from adding HC video to using FCoE to slash storage costs. So how we ensure our LANs are robust enough to handle the pressure?
In Forrester’s 24-criteria evaluation of videoconferencing infrastructure and cloud services vendors, we identified the 10 most significant OEMs — Acano, AGT, Avaya, Blue Jeans Network, Cisco Systems, Lifesize, Pexip, Polycom, Videxio, and Vidyo — in the category and researched, analyzed, and scored them.
Nowadays, employees expect intuitive tools that are not only easy to use but also enable them to work when, where, and how they need without constraint.
Get this e-book to learn five ways Citrix Workspace prioritizes user experience and security by providing:
-Easy access to all apps, desktops, and files

virtual apps from any location
-File sharing across devices
-Mobile productivity apps
For today’s businesses, fast Internet access is more than a competitive advantage. It is an operational necessity. Changes in the way companies are working – and the tools they are using – have created the need for high-speed connections to services and individuals off-site. Across the country, in-house servers are rapidly being replaced by cloud-based infrastructure. Videoconferencing is helping businesses cut travel costs. Mobile devices – with easy links to work-related content – are enabling more employees to be more productive, from any location. All of these applications have one factor in common: they require bandwidth. And plenty of it. Download this white paper to learn more about high-speed internet connections.
Today’s K-12 schools are hungry for bandwidth. The reason is clear: highperforming, reliable and easily expanded network services support the latest classroom innovations, including videoconferencing, 1:1 computing, distance learning and modern learning management systems. It’s no surprise then that progressive educators now see a direct link between the overall success of their school districts and access to high-capacity networks. This emerged as a clear trend in new research by the Center for Digital Education (CDE) — a commanding 98 percent of administrators and IT representatives said the future of K-12 education hinges on ubiquitous connectivity.
This white paper lays a framework for planning and implementing high-performance networks. In addition to explaining why now’s the time to plan network upgrades, this paper answers one of the fundamental questions asked by IT managers at schools everywhere: “How much network capacity will we actually need?”
