Posted by Marketing on Thu, 07/06/2018 - 13:05
MPLS networks have been the standard configuration for enterprise networks for years. Despite its qualities, MPLS is often expensive, having long deployment times and not addressing cloud or mobile traffic. Furthermore, staffing issues are also a less positive factor due to its necessity of managing security policies on site with the constant upgrade and update of appliances.
SD-WAN eliminates the challenges of MPLS networks by bringing the software defined networking (SDN) to the WAN: improving management and increasing cost savings when compared against MPLS.
But what features are important when choosing the right SD-WAN provider?
- Think beyond offices (cloud datacenters, cloud applications, and mobile users)
- Simplicity of deployment
- Active/Active configurations
