Let’s face it, MPLS for all of its high costs and long deployment times, did one thing right – it worked. You knew that the MPLS provider was going to engineer a network that could reach from Mumbai to Houston and work day-in-and-day-out.
The same can’t be said though for the public Internet. The Internet is inherently unpredictable. Internet connections must cross the networks of many providers, each optimizing routing for its own interests. As providers exchange traffic, the risk of packet loss only grows. The Internet is a “best effort” system in the truest sense of the word.
Within Internet regions, the differences between a “best effort” system and predictable transports are often less noticeable. Part of this has to do with the limited distances being covered. Much has to do with the density of the Internet buildout, allowing routing protocols to choose from many alternate routes. But between Internet regions, the longer latencies and fewer routes make the Internet far less dependable as the basis of a global WAN.
To better understand these issues and how Cato addresses them with its secure and optimized SD-WAN service, the Cato Cloud, watch this recorded webinar. Yishay Yovel, Vice President of Marketing at Cato Networks, explains Cato’s architecture and how it’s being used by three different customers.
This webinar will go over:
- Why the public Internet is so unreliable
- How Cato architected its global cloud network
- Cato’s approach to global routing
- Three case studies of companies who selected Cato and why
It’s a fast easy way to see how Cato can meet your company’s global WAN requirements. Watch it now here.
