Looking for an Alternative to MPLS?

Does your business utilise an MPLS network? Are you looking for a suitable alternative which can potentially cut down on costs but still have a network that is secure, flexible, with strong uptime and resilience, maintain Quality of Service (QOS) and ideally able to be self-managed? With the advent of SD-WAN technology, all of this could be a reality.

If your company is looking for options to replace your MPLS network, SD-WAN technology is able to route traffic dynamically across a network which utilises multiple different data services, and different carriers including NBN, Fibre, Dark fibre, MPLS networks and also mobile networks. SD-WAN has provided companies with the ability to aggregate multiple data networks and utilise lower-cost internet connections across different Technologies, without too many sacrifices. Depending on the data networks you have in place, SD-WAN is able to reduce data packet loss, improve uptime and quality of real-time traffic/applications such as voice and video communications.

SD-WAN provides Improved Network visibility, performance and control, allowing businesses to identify the usage profile of all applications on the network including social media, cloud storage and backups, so that priority can be allocated to more business critical applications, such as voice traffic. Some applications can be banned/restricted and heavy users can be identified based on visibility of each end point consumption and application.

Redundancy is built it by the usage of multiple data centres and multiple internet access carriers and technologies.

if you are looking for an alternative to MPLS, the team at Telco broker can take a look at your existing data network, we can identify what opportunities exist at each of your business locations, to replace existing data links. In some cases there could be opportunities to increase the quality and capacity of the data link, whilst also cutting down on costs. We can then step you through the process, of selecting an SD-WAN provider to provide you with the management and infrastructure layer that you need.

.

MPLS service deployments are well known to be a slow and cumbersome process, requiring careful planning and scheduling with the carrier, this process can commonly take weeks or months. More than ever, in this ever changing business landscape, organisations are required to be nimble and agile, and be able to respond quickly to market changes. Once a data link or service has been deployed, SD-WAN allows you to quickly provision new data links to an existing SD-WAN network in a fraction of the time, potentially in minutes. Via the use of self provisioning portals, much of the setup and configuration could be managed in house.

Please note, that SD-WAN does not suit every business environment, however, our team can work with you to explain the benefits and any drawbacks of this technology, and work with you to put together a business case to change in the event that it makes sense for your business.
