DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/js3rpm/network) has announced the addition of the "Network Mediation: A Platform for the Future" report to their offering.
This report is concerned with the real-time aspects of data collection and purpose-built analysis. And for that, the answer is mediation.
There are many ways to describe the communications networking universe of 2014 and beyond. Unlike the universe we humans live in, which looks the same in all directions, the networking universe looks different depending on your point-of-view. To some, it is an application-aware universe.
To others, it is services oriented toward customers or customer-driven. Still others see it as software-defined, or elastic, or even self-aware - well, maybe someday. The one manifestation that appears to no longer apply is the one that got the industry where it is today: a hardware-based, point-to-point, switched network architecture.
And good riddance, too. There is no point in being sentimental about the old network. It was fun to build, and entertaining to watch as business leaders attempted to force the technological wonder into various contortions of revenue models.
The network of old was loud and logical and physical. It was driven by an engineering process that behaved in accordance with concrete rules of optimization and performance, developed over generations. It was a network built by and seemingly for engineers.
