As cloud-based application adoption continues to accelerate, geographically distributed enterprises increasingly view the wide area network (WAN) as critical to connecting users to applications.

As enterprise applications migrate from the corporate data center to the cloud, private line connections such as multi-protocol label switching (MPLS) have proven to be overly rigid and expensive. With greater reliance on the internet, the opportunity to achieve “cloud speed” is better served by integrating broadband services into the WAN transport mix.

By deploying the EdgeConnect SD-WAN edge platform, replacing MPLS at most sites with 100 percent broadband and implementing Boost WAN optimization, Westcon gained a tenfold increase in available bandwidth, cut file transfer times by 98%, and ensured high quality of service for its VoIP system.
