WAN Connectivity: New Options, New Opportunities
There are many ways to provision the high-performance WAN options available today.
For today’s digital, Internet-enabled, data-centric companies — that is, every business — wide-area network connectivity among locations, employees and business partners is every bit as critical as power and water. No network, no operations, no customers, no revenue. In the days of telecom monopolies, provisioning a WAN meant paying through the nose for whatever digital circuit the incumbent telco had available in your area. Today, business-class variants of consumer broadband and direct fiber services have created more WAN choices, although options are still constrained by carrier and infrastructure availability at any given physical location. Even so, there are many ways to provision today’s high-performance WANs. This Report will examine the options, outline the trade-offs and provide a framework to help solutions providers decide what to recommend in any situation.
