Enterprise Networking trends in 2019
Enterprise networking is all about improving connectivity and enabling seamless communication between servers and applications. With 5G becoming a reality, we will see more deployment of edge of network, with computer resources deployed remotely and connected through 5G. Some trends that will redefine enterprise networking in 2019 are as follows.
Emergence of Cloud Native Functions
Cloud Native Functions (CNF) enable the encapsulation of networking concepts inside cloud native technology for smoothly enabling network functions.
Growth of intent-based networking
Intent-based networking, or intent-driven networking as it is also called, represents the next evolution of network software management and uses machine learning and advanced orchestration to reduce the complexity of managing and maintaining network policies. It is the integration of Software Defined Networking (SDN), intelligence and automation, and it will grow with organisations learning more about the concepts and its benefits.
Expansion of Istio service mesh solutions
Istio is an independent open platform service mesh that provides traffic management and policy enforcement and runs on Kubernetes, Nomad and Console. This platform, which is backed by Cisco, Google and IBM, will increasingly enable application containers manage traffic throughout the mesh by handling multiple containers in a microservices architecture.
50 Gigabit Networking
For connecting wired connected devices and enterprise desktops, the standard is 1 Gigabit Ethernet. In 2019, this will increase to 5Gbps Ethernet enabled switches which will give enterprises 5 times the bandwidth out of their existing cabling infrastructure. With regards to server infrastructure, the volume of Ethernet enabled switches will increase to 50 Gigabit.
Increasing relevance of IPv6
IpV6 is becoming the primary addressing approach of next generation IoT devices and contemporary cellular connection, and its prominence will show a marked increase. Ipv6 will replace IPv4’s 32bit address with a 128bit address that allows about 340 trillion addresses, enough for every person on earth to have multiple addresses for every device they own.
SDWAN for increased efficiency
Enterprises are remodelling their Wide Area Network (WAN) because their a lot of their users are connecting to multiple clouds. With technologies like SDWAN, they can manage this from the cloud and intelligently route their traffic. SDWAN enables enterprises to standardise the configuration and deploy them quickly and consistently across the sites.
