Technological innovations in the software defined WAN and the cloud described WANs.
Because the cloud and the software set WANs harness the network to increase the efficiency of the firm, it would be important to note that the technology developed in 1969 where the companies wanted to link computers for them to access the necessary information. The advancement made in has led to the today’s sophisticated cloud computing from just the APRNET and resulted in the development of today’s Internet.
The internet began to commercialize in the 1970s and led to the elaboration of the packets switched networks. WANs began to gain popularity in the 1980 and saw the development of the systems that transmitted both voice and traffic data, but the network was not enough to serve the surge in demand for the goods and services to suit the needs of the people. The 1990s led to the development of even more advanced modes of communication and saw the development of the ATMs (Asynchronous Transfer Mode) technology; this was made possible through the elaboration of the IT organizations that replaced the technology of the 1980s that were both expensive and inefficient.
The 2000s saw the development of the WANs based on the MPLs. One of the factors that people should consider before choosing the type of technology is their initial cost versus the profits that would come about due to their implementation. The modern day WANs have enabled most of the companies to devolve heir functions and monitor the operation of the different branches from one point in the headquarters.
