Create a uniform network
A stable and secure network is essential to transport your application traffic across the network and to the cloud.
Interoperability issues are often seen in networks that deploy many different vendors in their core networking and security environment.
For example, Spanning Tree and IPSEC are IEEE standards but implementations may differ slightly between vendor A and B.
These differences can have a big impact such as Spanning Tree loops or IPSEC VPN tunnels dropping without a reason.
Finding the root cause is time-consuming and resolving the problem almost impossible.
The moment you take your network to the next level, is the moment you have 1 vendor implemented for switches & routers and 1 vendor for Firewall & VPN.
You reduce the management overhead and the risk of an unstable network.
