Webcast Description:

It goes without saying that every enterprise needs to embrace digital tools to remain competitive. Cloud applications support everything from supply chain to customer service, and are now vital to how organizations develop products, reach the market and control cost.  

However, as enterprises come to rely upon digital tools, their connectivity needs increase, including the requirement for greater network flexibility, scalability and security. Equally important for organizations is the ability to adapt quickly and cost effectively to the unique, changing needs of their business. For these reasons, many enterprises are turning to private optical networks.  

Join us in this webinar, where you'll learn about: 
  • The advantages that private optical networks bring to enterprise wide area connectivity
  • The economic benefits of private optical networks compared to alternatives
  • The unique hardware requirements of private optical networks
