The modern business has far higher bandwidth requirements than it did even a few years ago thanks to hungry applications like video conferencing. New bandwidth requirements have made costs skyrocket. Now the old topologies are especially unattractive, but many organizations are unaware that there are better cheaper alternatives.
Gartner Incorporated, the world’s leading IT research company, estimates that by 2023, 30% of all enterprises will use SD-WAN technology. This is because SD-WAN offers a lower total cost of ownership, more efficient use of bandwidth, more availability, carrier agnosticism, increased security, application visibility and control, and unparalleled flexibility. Businesses now have a choice beyond just MPLS with a VPN backup.
