The Internet of Things and the way in which different industries are transforming their business is having a direct impact on the type of networking infrastructure they now require. Digitization, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Automation are now the main drivers for many companies across multiple verticals to look into new ways of offering their services, running their day to day operations, dealing with their customers and suppliers and become more efficient. But let’s look first into what we mean by Critical Network Infrastructure. Generally speaking, we refer to the information technologies and cybersecurity systems required to run mission critical applications that support the continuity of normal business and government operations. These systems provide the resiliency to avoid vital network interruptions and non-recoverable failures.
