Has MPLS become too expensive?
The short answer is YES!
Today, enterprises have evolved from MPLS-only networks, becoming digital businesses with multi-cloud environments, hybrid networks, and an over-abundance of SaaS, cloud, and on-prem applications to run their organizations. The manner in which employees access these applications has also changed with the advent of increasingly dynamic and mobile workforces that access these apps 24×7 over changing network conditions. In other words, in today’s fast-paced and competitive world, the ability for workforces to access applications anywhere and anytime is critical for business success.
This has caused the need for WAN optimization and more efficient connections to impact the way users experience applications – to drive improved profitability and create more value.
MPLS connections has continued to be expensive both national and abroad. MPLS has high security and stability, however, it is also connected to high cost and low agility due to multiyear agreements/contracts.
Imagine to have the same up time, stability and great user experience to 1/3 of the price of traditional WAN (MPLS). This is possible with SD-WAN. It provides a transformational approach to simplify branch office networking and assure optimal application performance.
