Whether it’s keeping up with compliance, staying ahead of the latest security threats or moving your business to the cloud, information technology is no longer considered a back-office function. In fact, IT is a key driver to digital transformation for many enterprise organizations.

C-level leaders are eager to embrace emerging tech trends like automation, blockchain and IoT, yet only organizations with a rock-solid networking foundation in place will be well positioned to support these kinds of initiatives. At Frontier®, we talk to CIOs every day about their top concerns, and here's what's on their minds.

On the minds of CIOs this year: simplicity, security, collaboration and innovation

How to reduce network complexity

CIO Solution: Centralized Management Through Ethernet

IoT experts estimate 50 billion devices will be connected to the internet by 2023

With the rise of BYOD initiatives and more enterprises trending toward a remote workforce, bandwidth and mobile connectivity demand will continue to escalate year over year.

Ethernet is a central component of an enterprise networking strategy and is known for high performance, speed and scalability. Providing a secure, dedicated gateway to public cloud providers, ethernet remains the most popular choice for WAN, according to IDC.

How to manage and secure big data

CIO Solution: Managed Wireless LAN

Your Wi-Fi faces more data, more devices, more threats

As the variety and volume of connected devices continues to climb, traditional controller-based WLAN architectures are struggling to keep up.

Managed Wireless LAN enables area-wide network connections across multiple locations. Cloud-managed and highly scalable, MWLAN reduces internal IT costs and enhances security through encryption and authentication.


CIO Solution: Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS)

Enterprise-level collaboration requires cloud compatibility

Gartner believes that by 2021, 90% of IT leaders will be relying on the cloud for their UC technology. Embedding communications into digital business processes and applications improves customer engagement, drives operational efficiency and generates new revenue growth.

UCaaS offers greater scalability and flexibility for organizations that need to quickly add and remove users or communication services like voice, video and messaging, without having to make major investments in infrastructure.


CIO Solution: Fully Managed Cloud Solutions

Migrating enterprise applications to the cloud is a complex and demanding journey

Managing multiple cloud models is an ongoing resource-drain. The process requires all IT hands on deck, even while they’re responsible for maintaining and supporting legacy platforms.

Cloud Managed Solutions liberate your in-house IT team from day-to-day operational tasks, freeing them to pursue value-generating innovations, explore new revenue streams and accelerate business priorities.
