Next-Generation Networking

Next-Generation Networking (NGN) focuses on the massive shifts in network technologies, services, and pricing models, that are changing the way organizations connect.

Topics include gigabit wireless (5G and gigabit-grade LTE); private wireless networks; MPLS, Ethernet, Internet, and optical services; and software-defined networking (SDN), network function virtualization (NFV), and SD-WAN. We track the deployment of edge computing and edge data centers, and monitor the move to WAN cloud exchanges (WAN-CX). In our ongoing WAN Economics research, we track the rates and performance of WAN services. We assess connectivity options for DRaaS (Disaster Recovery as a service) and track best practices for optimal operations and total cost of ownership (TCO).
