Wide area network (WAN) decision-making today generally centers on Internet Protocol (IP)-based services. But many organizations are still running older networking services in various parts of the enterprise, limiting their ability to take advantage of new intelligent features and applications.
IP services provide a rich and automated feature set that has been widely deployed and which enable automation and business agility. Among the key enterprise benefits:
- Flexibility to forward traffic directly among any of your MPLS VPN-connected sites
- Revolutionary programmability with software-defined networking (SDN) over IP
- With IP-over-Ethernet in the last mile you can easily increase or decrease access speeds
- IP-based cellular links can provide a primary or a backup last-mile link
