MPLS, SDN, even SD-WAN can give you the network observability you need

What do router networks and a preschool have in common? A lot more than you think. Read on for the answer.

To the average enterprise, “network” means “router network”. It’s not that there aren’t other things in the network, but that the whole of enterprise networking is about building IP connectivity. We’ve invented a bunch of terms to describe the elements of our IP networks, and it seems like we’re adding new ones every day.  As we do, a growing number of enterprises are finding that they don’t know as much about their networks’ operation as they need to; they don’t have “observability”.
