Top 7 Network and Infrastructure Upgrades Your Organization Should Consider

February 09, 2023

Upgrading network and enterprise IT infrastructure is essential to the successful operation of a modern business. Advances in network and infrastructure technologies can allow businesses to enjoy increased productivity, data-driven decision making, improved infrastructure and greater competitive agility. In this article, we will review network and infrastructure upgrades that every modern business should consider.

  1. Implementing software-defined networking (SDN)
    SDN systems allow organizations to better manage their networks. SDN systems provide greater visibility into network performance and can incorporate automation to speed up issue management. The result is a network that is more reliable, performs better, scales easily when needed, and costs less in the long run.

  2. Migrating to the cloud
    Cloud migration can provide organizations with numerous benefits including improved performance of enterprise systems, rapid scalability, enhanced systems and data integration, operational flexibility, and reduced infrastructure and administration costs. Cloud platforms offer a wide range of options for deploying and managing resources, allowing organizations to choose the solution that best meets their needs.

  3. Upgrading your firewall
    Next Generation Firewalls (NGFW) combine systems and functions that have traditionally been performed by disparate systems into a single integrated platform. NGFW combines the capabilities of traditional firewall capabilities and layers of integrated intrusion detection and prevention, antivirus, spam and malware protection, endpoint security, role-based access management, and extensive policy control capabilities. NGFW allows organizations to improve security, simplify their network infrastructure and improve overall performance.

  4. Implementing a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI)
    VDI is a technology that allows organizations to host desktop operating systems and applications on a central server, rather than on individual computers or devices. Because the operating system and applications are hosted on a central server, VDI implementations make it easier to manage and secure end-user computing devices.

  5. Implementing Intent-based networking (IBN)
    IBN is a type of networking approach that uses AI, machine learning, and automation to proactively manage networks. Compared to other networking management technologies, IBN minimizes the need for human intervention. IBN systems proactively identify threats and performance issues and take the steps needed to address them. IBN systems learn from how your organization handles threats and other issues and incorporates this learning into how it manages future issues, progressively becoming more and more capable over time.

  6. Integrating internet of Things (IOT) Technologies
    IoT devices can track the location and status of assets, such as servers, switches, and routers, making managing and maintaining them more manageable. By collecting data on the performance and usage of assets, IoT devices can help to identify potential problems before they occur, enabling proactive maintenance to prevent downtime.

  7. Implementing DEVOPS
    DevOps can help to streamline the process of integrating and delivering updates to network and infrastructure systems. By automating the build, test, and deployment process, teams can more quickly and easily make changes to these systems. It helps in enabling teams to quickly identify and resolve any issues that may arise due to improved monitoring and observability.
