Industry-specific networks: how they differ

State of the WAN Orange

Even though you can get a large amount of synergy within specific regions, business areas and connectivity types, no two networks are exactly the same. And this is even more apparent when it comes to moving between different industries.

Two business may be located right next to each other in the same street, but their connectivity requirements and business priorities could be light years apart. If you're a network manager responsible for keeping a factory producing or rolling out autonomous, edge-driven production, you're going to have a different priority to a banking and finance manager whose key brief is to keep customer data safe.

At the WAN Summit New York we spoke to network managers from varied sectors in the economy - healthcare and consultancy - and also got the analyst point of view. What keeps them up at night, and what might be the specific areas a supplier to these sectors might need to know?
