Top 10 Networking Solution Companies in Europe - 2020

As enterprises are hastily moving their IT infrastructures to the cloud, there is enormous pressure on them to build a network that can sustain and support these digitalisation initiatives. As a result, the IT networking landscape is at the centre of a maelstrom of changes that are happening at all levels of the stack, from infrastructure to applications. The IT teams are increasingly implementing advanced platforms, tools, and methodologies to usher the legacy networks into a new digital era. They are creating networks that can support the leading-edge technologies and services while also extending the reach of the corporate network footprint.

To create an intelligent and responsive network infrastructure, IT teams are combining analytics with virtualisation today. In that regard, how IT teams choose their tools to design an automated, virtualised, programmable, scalable, and secure IT environment will determine whether their digitalisation initiatives would be a success or failure.

On that front, the technological trends such as software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN), Wi-Fi 6, and multi-domain control, together with virtual networking, are playing a prominent role in shaping the networks of the future. For instance, the growth of multi-cloud networking is already forcing many enterprises to align their networks in favour of SD-WAN. It is aiding enterprises to achieve branch connectivity without breaking their bank. SD-WAN is also bringing in much business value by enabling connectivity that ushers in innovative projects. Similarly, Wi-Fi 6 A.K.A.802.11ax is the latest development in the field of wireless connectivity that is expected to change the face of networking solutions. Notably, it increases the device density that can independently coexist in a single space without impacting the speed on a single device. And meanwhile, multi-domain integration is also on the rise, which lets users set policies to apply uniform access controls regardless of where they connect to the network.

At this juncture, there is a variety of networking solution providers available in the market that cater to the different needs of the enterprises. To help them choose the solution provider that best fits their requirement, Enterprise Networking Magazine has compiled a list of the top 10 networking solution providers in Europe.
