The Hybrid WAN: Transition at Your Own Pace

Begin by Augmenting MPLS with Broadband

As more applications move to the cloud, companies are finding MPLS is no longer sufficient to address today's WAN requirements. There is a desire to operate at "cloud speed," but many IT organizations may be reluctant to transition to a broadband WAN (often referred to as an SD-WAN) overnight.

While the ultimate goal may be an all-broadband WAN, enterprises can begin their journey with a hybrid WAN. As MPLS upgrades arise, businesses can explore lower-cost broadband Internet services as an alternative for connecting to Cloud applications. This provides an opportunity to downsize MPLS bandwidth and only use that connectivity for remaining data center applications. Enterprises can begin to slowly migrate additional applications from the data center to the cloud as desired.

Transitioning to this new WAN model requires minimal disruption or cost. Internet services can be introduced into the WAN without impact on application performance or the MPLS network. A Silver Peak-enabled broadband WAN automatically selects the optimum path for every application. This can restrict business-critical traffic to MPLS networks, while directing less critical traffic across the Internet VPN. Given industry averages for bandwidth costs, payback for a broadband WAN investment starts immediately.

Silver Peak gives enterprises and service providers the flexibility to securely connect their users to their applications via the most cost-effective source of connectivityavailable
