Taking Your WAN into the Next Generation: Understanding Your Options

Listen to post:

The days when physical locations represented the heart of your network are firmly in the rear-view mirror. More and more, global cloud-based services and mobility are increasingly demanding a greater share of your network’s traffic, raising the need for a Wide Area Network (WAN) that connects all of your network services and users regardless of their location. To achieve this you’ll need a WAN architecture that delivers:

  • High Availability
  • Low Latency
  • Enterprise-grade security
  • Cost-efficiency

In recent years new solutions have emerged to challenge legacy MPLS and internet-based WAN solutions.

Which network technology is the Best Fit for Your Business?

There are very specific advantages and disadvantages that affect different parts of your network. Do you continue paying premium prices for MPLS links? Do you leverage SD-WAN to offload some traffic and delay the need to upgrade? Or do you move your network management altogether with a cloud-based and secured WAN? Your Next Generation WAN needs to reflect your new network ecosystem and be able to support it reliably and securely.
