WAN traffic is continuing to grow over 200 percent yearly. At the same time, MPLS bandwidth pricing, unlike decreasing cloud pricing, has remained relatively constant, further supporting the shift to SD-WAN solutions. Purchasing lower-cost bandwidth is a great way to handle the rise in overall WAN traffic without breaking the bank.
SD-WAN solutions have revolutionized how commercial and government entities manage their enterprise networks. While SD-WAN solutions have made the enterprise’s use of their WAN more efficient, it has not solved some of the fundamental performance, privacy and security issues.
Leased lines are fixed, static and easily located, making an easy target for cyber attack. They limit the ability to meet bandwidth demands elastically … and they are expensive.
