This has created a demand for highly interactive, efficient and easy-to-use business applications. Enterprises now need a network solution that delivers a high quality user experience for virtualized applications, and take full advantage of the cloud – spanning application-aware local area networks (LAN), optimized wide area networks (WAN) to cloud-ready data centers for small and mid-sized businesses, and multi-site private clouds for large enterprises.
