Gartner estimates that enterprises will need 28% more bandwidth compounded annually for each year through 2017. Paying for that additional bandwidth will be an added burden for IT departments.

When paired with the Internet, the netPulz Transparent Network Appliance, (www.netPulz.com) from Advans IT Services, Inc., (“Advans”, http://www.AdvansIT.com), makes for a compelling package to create a Software-Defined Wide-Area Network without the need for traditional network gear.
