A digital landscape lies ahead, and despite hesitations, many organizations are transforming their WANs to align with a cloud and mobile environment. With most organizations still learning how to mesh old processes with new ones, the months ahead likely will show a few bumps in the road as CIOs find their balance with new digital strategies.

In industries ranging from retail and restaurants to healthcare, education, and public safety, organizations are deploying cloud-managed, software-defined IoT solutions over 4G LTE networks — and achieving the flexibility, scalability, security, and cost-effectiveness they need amid the Digital Transformation.
One of the best ways to boost retail network security at the WAN edge is to leverage a separate router to move a specific application off the enterprise network and onto a completely separate Parallel Network dedicated to that application.
The effects of 4G LTE and Software-Defined Networking (SDN) on Smart Cities have been profound. The potential for connected people, places, and things has enabled cities to provide a deep and vast array of services in many different areas.
Several key findings emerged from this study, including that approximately 60 percent of IT pros indicated they were already deploying LTE as a WAN connectivity solution.
The rapid rise of the Internet of Things (IoT) is shaping the way retailers serve customers and run their operations. It’s an exciting time, but it presents a unique challenge: The amount of data that will be generated by IoT devices in the retail sphere will grow exponentially faster than networks' ability to process it.
As businesses enter the Internet of All Things, the recurrent concern of security is not far behind. Whether it’s POS devices, digital signage, customer WiFi, kiosks, video surveillance—or even HVAC control, every new connected device brings with it the risk of an information breach.

The 2013 International CES, one of the biggest wireless shows in the industry, is in full swing. I'm here among more than 150,000 attendees that are swarming an area larger than 37 football fields; I logged 8 miles on my pedometer the first day. Over the last four decades, many of the biggest innovations in electronics debuted at CES, including:
