Evaluating Multiple Technologies For Your Next Deployment?

It’s important to first understand what you’re looking to do. Consider, for example, that many WAN-related problems can be solved in many ways. Before you take the time to review the chart below, it’s important to understand what needs you’re trying to meet. Then, the solution(s) you might want to consider will make that much more sense.

Looking To Increase Network Speed?

Perhaps you’re in need of more bandwidth (upload or download) – you should consider looking at;

  • MLPPP – bonding (combining) multiple connections of the same speeds/ type/ISP.

  • Broadband – Unreliable but increased download speed which is great if you have a lot of incoming traffic like for basic email, web browsing, limited VoIP usage.

  • Our software-defined network (SDN/ SD-WAN) – Bonded Internet™ will combine network connections (similar to MLPPP) but allows you to combine connections of various speeds/types/ISP at a lower cost than MLPP and speeds far greater than broadband.

Looking To Increase Network Up-time?

If your WAN/internet connection is frequently offline, you should consider:
 

  • Load Balancing – These devices will allocate specific connections for specific applications, and will redirect traffic in the event one of the connections goes offline. However, sessions will time out and SSL sessions are not reliable. This will have frequent disconnects, log-outs, and time-outs.

  • Lease/Dedicated/E1/T1 – upgrading to a Leased circuit might help with the upload bandwidth you need. But not the download speeds as they are often insufficient for Cloud Services like hosted Email. Uptime will be in the high 9’s.

 

  • Our Software Defined Network (SDN/ SD-WAN) – Bonded Internet™ combines the connections from different providers in a way that maintains uptime for all traffic even if a line fails. Moreover, it maintains session consistency, SSL security and you won’t have disconnects and time-outs even if a single connection goes offline.

Looking for Advanced Features like Encryption & Quality of Service?

If you’re switching to Voice-over-IP or using video conferencing for sales/services and you’re not getting the quality you need or want, you might want to consider:
 

  • MPLS – This (really expensive) routing protocol ensures traffic is properly prioritized, queued, and shaped based on its importance to the user.

  • Our Software Defined Network (SDN/ SD-WAN) – Bonded Internet™ allows you to prioritize and encrypt traffic over the public Internet – giving customers all of the benefits of MPLS without the price tag.
