It’s time to think differently about managing your network.
Over ninety-two percent of midsize businesses use at least one cloud-based application. And the majority of enterprises expect at least half of their management infrastructure to be cloud-based. Cloud-managed networking, often provided "as-a-service," is rapidly growing in popularity.
What is cloud-managed networking?
Cloud-managed networking is commonly used when referring to the ability to manage Wi-Fi, wired and SD-WAN network infrastructure as a cloud-based service. This service is typically hosted in the cloud by a 3rd party as a subscription-based purchase model.
Top 5 reasons for Cloud-managed networking
Centralized visibility and control.

Real-time innovation and bug fix updates.
The main advantages of cloud-managed networking is that the product and product update process is managed by the vendor. New features and functionality are continuously developed and automatically delivered, allowing IT to focus on introducing new services, instead of planning for downtime.
The compute power to grow.
Cloud services offer virtually unlimited compute and storage capacity, making it ideal for utilizing advanced technologies such as AI/ML analytics solutions. A cloud subscription-based model makes it easy to take advantage of new technologies that may have been resource or cost prohibitive.
