Campuses – including branch offices, retail stores, temporary office space, or events venues – require secure WAN/LAN connectivity and shared services such as authentication, print, Wi-Fi, telephony, etc., to be implemented. The main challenges encountered during the technology deployment of campuses include:
- Wide adoption of cloud-based apps demands better application performance for branch offices.
- The continued use of multi-protocol label switching (MPLS)/backhaul traffic results in scalability issues and cost overruns.
- The deployment of WAN/security/shared services to branch offices is slow and expensive to maintain.
