The IT landscape has changed dramatically.

The IT landscape has changed dramatically, led by the change in how users access data and their expectations around network performance. Instead of relying solely on traditional point-to-point connections and MPLS networks, infrastructure has evolved to meet the growing amount of users over various devices.
