According to a recent survey by Forrester1 sponsored by Juniper Networks, 86% of businesses said that they have not been able to provision new services or support business demands because the network was not up to the task. As demands on networks to support multiple services and technologies such as big data, cloud computing, mobility, virtualization, and social networking have increased, traditional network designs have not been able to keep pace with the performance, security, and scalability requirements necessary to deliver a superior experience for end users.
The XO Intelligent WAN helps IT and network managers stay ahead of these challenges with a unified approach to total network management that provides the performance, security and visibility they require through three key capabilities: the intelligent networking capabilities of XO MPLS IP-VPN, integrated hosted network security and end-to-end visibility of application performance.
