To an ever-increasing extent, the world of applications and the world of the network to support those applications are converging.  In fact, one of the most exciting technology areas for 2004 will be the continued integration of “layer 4 through 7” capabilities into traditional networking equipment.


But what does this mean to the enterprise, and how do you architect your network to take advantage of these emerging capabilities?
