Preface > What Is the New Network Platform Architecture?

What Is the New Network Platform Architecture?

Once upon a time, it used to be just the service provider (SP) and the local area network (LAN). Then it went to SP and enterprise. Then campus and branch, WLAN, and edge joined in. Then the data center, and now user devices by the billion, with each having more communication power than any computer a decade ago. This evolution is a good thing. It means the domains of the world’s networks are adapting to the needs of their entities, and they are organizing themselves by how they operate and the services they need to offer to their users. Putting another router on the rack because its cheap ain’t going to cut it, because you’ll eventually need more warriors and more warrior time to fix the cheap patch.
