Our research shows that nearly half of businesses, on average, have between 50% and 100% of its workforce operating remotely as a result of COVID-19. This proportion is the highest in the UK, Europe, Southeast Asia and Australia/New Zealand where two-thirds of employees are working remotely. The lowest proportion is in North Asia with just one-third of employees .

Do you know how different components of SD-WAN can fit within
an IT Services Management model? When it comes to maximising SD-WAN’s performance, factors such as implementation, delivery through connectivity, management, troubleshooting and reporting all play a vital role.
Performance monitoring is important for management of links (e.g. latency, throughput, packet loss, jitter, utilisation). With this information in hand and an understanding of the applications and workloads, many SD-WAN solutions can make real-time routing decisions to deliver the strongest possible performance, by picking from a variety of network links and routing paths.
