Enterprise Network Application:
An enterprise network is considered to be the backbone or a platform where all the hardware, software and communication of an organization take place through exchange of data. The three main features that are interesting are
1. VPN Applications
2. Firewall Software’s
VPN (Virtual Private Application) Applications:
The VPN Application helps in connecting the laptops or devices to the organization’s network. The VPN technology gets its name from the fact that a VPN connection creates a virtual private tunnel between you and the network at the other end (Underdahl, Brian & Hirschmann, J, 2014).
The firewall software helps in protecting the organization’s network from unauthenticated network IPs by creating a wall for the organization and protecting it against malware attacks
Local Area Network (LAN):
The local area network connectivity helps in transferring the data or exchange of files or information from one device or network to other.
The examples of three major enterprise applications that are interesting to study and understand are
1. Customer Relationship Management Tools:
For the purpose of discussion considering the company Intercom, as most of the services have moved online, especially in the current situation Intercom has come up with the product that allows the CRM to be handled Online by handling the customer chats, keeping track of the consumers, and filtering the information as required
2. Issue Tracking:
Tracking the issues for an organization without a physical presence has been difficult, but by using certain software tools and applications online the life of the staff becomes easy. For the purpose of explaining issue tracking let us consider Atlassian Software Enterprise solution has come up with the concept of tracking the information through a software names JIRA. The software is completely online and on cloud. It has two formats Online (cloud format) or Application format. The best thing about the software is it can be connected with or without VPN or LAN if it’s on cloud and provides users to track the issues and resolve them with ease.
3. Air ticketing System/Competitive Reservation System:
This system has been developed in the 1960’ and 1970s (Lucas, Henry C, 2009) which was called Computerized Reservation System(CRS). It was American Airlines that developed SABRE System to track reservations. Current day SABRE itself has become an organization that helps in tracking the reservations to a wide area of the network throughout the world which many airlines are part of.
All the above enterprise applications are growing every year by enhancing and developing the features and through their outreach to a broader audience.

There are many advancements in the IT industry, among them networking, cloud, and networks are rapidly evolving, especially networking is evolving in a tremendous way, as there are traditional hardware devices are being replaced with cloud services, to match the speed and the data feed they are going through multiple advancements.
The growth in the cloud made many companies take advantage of it and especially small startups have gained tremendously with fewer infrastructure costs and pay-per-use policy, as the services are always cost-driven. But the companies who have the data on on-premise servers need to connect to the data in the cloud and many are having issues connecting there are new technologies that are being developed to integrate both the private and on-premise clouds.
There is a huge growth in investing in SD-WAN, there is an estimated market of $4.5 billion in SD-WAN by 2022. Currently, there are many companies that are depending on software-defined networking and it is expected that many companies are trying to adopt it, and it will be a mass increase, but software-defined WAN is going to be the future. Migrating to SD-WAN will bring great value to a company. A complicated WAN can be easily made, and one can define a policy on top of the WAN, that has a mix of multiple circuits and carriers, the policy can identify the network that is needed for different applications. ( Marcia Savage, 2017)
We are currently in the 4G and LTE, the future is 5G and that will bring a lot of high-speed traffic that will help in accessing and downloading data at a higher speed. (Gina Narcisi. 2020). Because of this, the telecom companies’ network capacity needs to be increased in order to handle the incoming and outgoing data. The expectation was the 5G will be handled by the carriers like T-Mobile, AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon, they all are in the race to provide to the customer as soon as possible, but because of the covid-19 reasons, it is being delayed.
