For companies, one goal of the cloud is to abstract away the details of tech. Behind the scenes, however, there are plenty of improvements occurring. NTT ICT is focusing on software-defined wide area networks to create application-aware routing and deliver better performance.

Improved technology means companies can use inexpensive devices as powerful networking infrastructure. Is an employee working with critical and time-dependent data? SD-WAN technology can use traffic inspection to send this data over expensive MPLS lines. Is an employee taking a break on Facebook? Send it over low-cost public internet lines to conserve more expensive bandwidth.
