As companies scale to multiple locations in China, they run into an age-old problem in regards to their wans: Connectivity vs. Cost. Connectivity means utilizing the stability of MPLS circuits, which provide the reliability and scalability many companies need to grow their operations. Benefitting from cost means understanding the difference between the true cost of an MPLS circuit and that of a typical broadband connection, as well as the opportunity cost lost when mission-critical traffic goes across the public internet instead of the MPLS circuit.
To gain better performance, control and visibility over their network and data, many companies in China are looking to China Telecom Americas to help them deploy a SD-WAN architecture atop their MPLS cloud. By separating the data plane from the control plane, traffic can be managed as needed to achieve the right outcome. For enterprise-critical traffic, that might be over the MPLS network, while “everyday” traffic runs over the internet. And if something goes wrong and the primary path is not available (as often might be the case in congested public networks, like those found in highly populated regions like China), the SD-WAN can reroute traffic over a different path. Most China Telecom Americas customers find their OPEX savings from deploying hybrid SD-WAN exceeds their CAPEX expenditures through simplified configuration and link provisioning.
That’s not to say MPLS is unimportant. Companies need MPLS for cross-border connectivity, backhaul and getting across the national gateway. The quality of service (QoS) of MPLS circuits is unmatched, and even those who decide to overhaul their networks need to ensure that MPLS is still included in their plans to protect the quality of network traffic.
There’s plenty of interest in deploying a hybrid network with SD-WAN, even after a down year where businesses sat and waited for a rebound during the COVID-19 pandemic. In February, Dell’Oro Group forecast that the worldwide sales of SD-WAN technologies would grow at a CAGR of 24 percent over the next five years. The SD-WAN market is expected to surpass $4 billion by 2025, Dell’Oro says, and software will drive 80 percent of revenue, accelerating during the period between 2021 and 2025.
