4 Key Reasons Why You Need Internet-Scale Visibility of Your Network 

Written by Nathan Ashby,
Solutions Architect, Cisilion

With today’s digital landscape becoming increasingly distributed and complex, it’s more important than ever for businesses to modernise their networks and optimise their applications. Doing so is key to keeping workers productive and user experiences satisfying.

That’s why Cisilion has enhanced our expertise in ThousandEyes to provide our clients with the insights they need to troubleshoot quickly and stay ahead of the competition. 

Almost all of our enterprise clients are facing a monumental shift in how they operate, collaborate, and connect as the lines between office-based work and remote work have blurred. As a Cisco Gold Partner, Cisilion is at the forefront of this transformation, with expertise to deploy solutions to help enterprise-grade companies upgrade their networks and thrive. 



1. Embracing Complexity: The Modern Enterprise Network

With each passing day, enterprise networks and IT landscapes are growing more intricate. The demand for seamless connectivity has skyrocketed as businesses expand their digital footprint. The rise of cloud services, the Internet of Things (IoT), and data-intensive applications have placed immense pressure on traditional network infrastructures.

The challenge lies in ensuring consistent performance, security, and reliability across a dispersed network environment. According to Gartner’s predictions, by 2025, 51% of IT spending will shift to the cloud. Underscoring the importance of having a robust and adaptable network infrastructure that can seamlessly integrate with cloud services. 


2. Redefining Work Dynamics: The Evolution of Hybrid Work

The concept of work has undergone a radical transformation and the vast majority of our clients has seen its balance between office-based and remote work shifted dramatically. Employees now seek flexibility and the freedom to choose where and how they work.

This shift has been accelerated by global events, prompting companies to rethink their operational strategies. Cisco’s Global Workforce Survey in 2020 revealed that 58% of employees are expected to work remotely for eight or more days each month. 


3. The Rise of Hybrid Work and Network Investments

Hybrid work is a permanent fixture in the modern work landscape and as a result, investments in existing wide area networks (WANs) are gaining momentum. To maintain a productive and collaborative work environment, businesses need to ensure that their networks can seamlessly support remote and office-based teams. This is where Cisco ThousandEyes comes into play. 

Cisco’s Global Workforce Survey highlights that 98% of all business meetings will include at least one person joining from a home office. This reinforces the critical need for a network that can support seamless and reliable virtual collaboration. 


4. Cisco ThousandEyes: Empowering Hybrid Work Success
