With the advent of globalization, WANs have become a major artery for communication between remote offices and customers in any corner of the world. Additionally, with data center consolidation, applications are moving to centralized data centers and clouds. WANs now play an even more critical role, because business survival is dependent on the availability and performance of the network. Until now, the only way to get reliable connectivity with predictable performance was to take advantage of a private WAN using MPLS or leased line service. However, carrier-based MPLS and leased line services can be expensive and are not always cost-effective for an organization to use for WAN transport in order to support growing bandwidth requirements for remote-site connectivity.

Recognizing Virtual Meeting Fatigue and What You Can Do About It

Article | May 20, 2021

I’m a new-ish remote worker and, although I love 99% of everything associated with it, lately, after every virtual meeting I have, I’m feeling exhausted and drained. And not in the normal, everyday work exhausted and drained kind of way. It’s a peculiar combination of eye strain, headaches, and general malaise that I really only experience after a long day of virtual meetings. I was curious if others were feeling the same so I did a completely non-scientific study of my remote work friends to see how they’ve been feeling. Turns out, I’m not alone. Workers everywhere are going through a huge transition as the work from anywhere model has accelerated at breakneck speed since the pandemic. Although some parts of the world are slowly returning to a new normal, many employers, including Tangoe, have made the decision to keep the work from anywhere model while some organizations are electing to use a hybrid model of partly remote, partly in-office.

Intelligence Brief: How is 5G changing network ownership?

Article | February 12, 2020

5G necessitates a different network strategy. Unlike previous generations, 5G deployment is not only about adding more sites and increasing backhaul capacity. In fact, it is more about rethinking the whole network architecture to make it agile. The high capacity requirements of 5G will necessitate the use of small cells in cities and areas of high footfall (such as airports) to complement national macro networks. Private networks (for example to sell into enterprise customers) and the concept of a neutral host (such as for sports stadiums) are further examples of diversification.
