Enterprise networks are essential for businesses of all sizes. They provide the
foundation for communication, collaboration, and productivity. Given the increasing
digitization and migration to SaaS, traditional MPLS based links may not be optimal
from functionality, cost and reach standpoint. “Security” as the mainstay of MPLS is
increasing losing significance in light of emerging edge security components making
Internet leased lines and broadband economical alternative for enterprise
networks. They offer a pervasive network coverage and rapid on-demand
bandwidths which helps evolve an agile Enterprise network at scale.
However, there are some concerns about the reliability of broadband for enterprise networks.
One of the biggest concerns about broadband is that it can be unreliable. There is a general perception of being a “Public Networks there is limited control on network performance parameters like packet loss and latency, coupled with no Service level agreements. This is because broadband is a shared medium, which means that it can be affected by other users on the network. If there are a lot of users on the network, it can slow down due to network congestion. There is no inherent method for traffic routing or prioritization in broadband networks thus all customer traffic is often left to the mercy of “standard path based on traffic conditions”. These concerns often make Enterprise customers wonder if Broadband is Secure for their traffic, Stable to support their network requirements and Scalable enough to roll out across their network. Thus, Enterprises often wonder if they are losing their network integrity as a trade-off for lower costs of broadband networks. There are serval key changes in technology evolution which have however changed the landscape of Internet Leased Lines and Broadband over the past few years.
