Enterprises use a wide variety of networks and network technologies to deliver services and support internal operations. Each network may have different authentication credentials with separate identity providers, as well as different security capabilities, policies, levels of performance and coverage domains. All of this creates a network environment that is complex to operate and manage. As a result, network performance and efficiency may not be optimized, leading to decreased productivity for enterprise users.
This report explores an industry approach designed to integrate and simplify the management of this complex network environment and enhance the overall reliability, resiliency, performance, and security of the end-to-end (E2E) system.
