Networking capabilities are increasingly critical to digital-enabled business innovation. As such, IT organizations are investing in the network to improve network speed and performance, boost data security, and ensure availability. Meanwhile, they are planning investments in the cloud (organiza- tions with more than 1,000 employees plan to invest an average $2.87 million each in 2016 ) and big data (80 percent of enterprise organizations are already planning or considering this in the next 12 months). The investments to enable these projects are consid- erable, and while they may eventually reduce costs and/or generate revenue, IT organizations need to free up spend now to make that happen.
The good news is that hidden cost savings exist in an often overlooked but fundamental element of the network: optical transceivers. In this white paper, we take a look at how you can reduce costs by implementing brand-equivalent fiber- optic transceivers, such as those from InterOptic, in the network.
