AI and ML platform ease the workload of enterprises and improve their businesses by enhancing the company profit.

FREMONT, CA: The networking field is evolving fast. Different emerging technologies fundamentally impact how businesses and their workers connect. Each technology helps enterprises improve some aspects of how the company runs, such as network efficiency or complete business models. The major focus of the industry is to deliver innovations within the top layers of the network, especially around the software, applications, and other virtual solutions. However, enterprises are seeing a shift towards investments in the physical infrastructure that will form the foundations of any network. Modern hardware comprising the new multi-rate switches and next-generation Wi-Fi infrastructure has become smarter and faster. The other technological advances like the Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) find their way into the networking space. The new solutions powered by AI and ML help organizations fight against cyber threats through the advanced behavioral analytics that powers the unusual device activity. Here are some topics to consider while discussing enterprise networking and technology.

Wi-Fi 6

Wi-Fi 6, also known as 802. 11ax, is an improved version of the current highest-speed Wi-Fi protocol in wide use, 802.11ac. Wi-Fi improves the efficiency across all the existing Wi-Fi bands,  comprising the older 2.4GHz frequencies. Wi-Fi 6 will also get a new spectrum in the 6GHz band in 2019 or 2020 improving its speed. The largest enhancement that comes along with Wi-Fi 6 is that it increases the density of the devices that can exist with each other in a single space. The new standard also enhances the performance by supporting deterministic packet scheduling, as well as increasing the efficiency of any brand. Wi-Fi improves the experience for almost all the wireless users, from office workers, who find that their devices communicate more seamlessly and quickly in the crowd places. The people supporting the group of IoT devices will find a way where the users can pack more low-power devices with few access points. The reliably deterministic nature of Wi-Fi 6, joined with its speed, means it should be used for life-safety applications, comprising things like the remote surgery devices.

Machine Learning

The organizations have already started to adopt AI and ML to analyze the telemetry from networks to witness these patterns, in an attempt to get ahead of the issues from performance optimization, to financial efficiency and security. The pattern matching abilities of the ML is used to spot the anomalies in network behavior, which might be missed. The enterprise leveraging AI in network management will be simply reporting the activities that break the regular patterns. As technology advances, it grows to be proactive.

5G

5G in 2019 will bring improved and enhanced speed and battery life to smartphones, as well as the increased use of the fixed wireless for residences, competing with wired broadband for some communities. In the enterprise market, the impact of 5G will be considered as a convenient option for the WAN connection getting branch offices online. The 5G's time-slicing technology and the sensors will be able to run on the batteries that would last for years.

 2019 is going to be a transformative year in the enterprise network platform. Network operators will be preparing systems to support dramatically greater device density and data delivery. The network operators will be getting new analytics about their infrastructure use from the network itself.
