WANs of the Past
Just a few years ago, the only WAN technology that could ensure quality of service and high performance was dedicated private network like MPLS. MPLS was a dramatic improvement over Frame Relay but with dedicated access and port costs, as well as often needing to maintain separate networks for public internet, MPLS was still an expensive and cumbersome solution.  Now, SD-WAN (Software Defined - Wide Area Network) has arrived.  

Introducing: SD-WAN
SD-WAN has the potential to not only dramatically improve your network performance, but deliver this promise at a fraction of your budget.  SD-WAN is a relatively new, but well-tested technology that enables businesses to connect their locations, aggregate bandwidth, and most importantly, provide optimal performance routing to flawlessly support the ever-expanding ecosystem of real-time and bandwidth hungry applications that drive today’s enterprises.  

SD-WAN can be delivered over-the-top of multiple network options – broadband Internet, business-class fiber, wireless, MPLS, and more - in a hybrid model to balance costs, performance and network redundancy  The ability to “run on anything” gives you the ability to cost-effective alternatives to improve your network's performance while lowering your network costs.  

It's the perfect compliment to MPLS to improve your application performance, and reduce costs;
