Central to a comprehensive cloud strategy is the migration of mission-critical applications from on site. Business productivity applications, such as Salesforce, were the first to move. And as more businesses are moving mission-critical communications to the cloud, network requirements are shifting.
In our experience with over 350,000 businesses, a critical balancing point is between the strain applications place on the network and the network bandwidth required to support these applications. And with the prevalence of BYOD devices, access to social media, and media streaming, the requirements must jump even further.
Curtis Peterson, SVP of Global Operations, has spent the last six years building out the RingCentral communications system. In a recent webinar, he spoke about the strategies he is seeing companies around the world develop to make the best of their current and future requirements. In this webinar he discusses:
- How to select the application connection best suited to support multiple offices: MPLS, SD-WAN, over-the-top (OTT), or direct connect
- QoS (quality of service) standards to look for when researching applications
- How to select applications that you can mold into your infrastructure
- Ways to safeguard bandwidth in your infrastructure and application stack
