Broadband Bonding is a Cost-Effective Alternative to MPLS for Branch Office WANs

Yesterday at Interop, I had a chance to chat with Tech Target’s editor Tessa Parmenter about MPLS, how broadband bonding (SD-WAN) and WAN virtualization is starting to change the MPLS landscape and how it is reshaping branch office connectivity.

More specifically she asked me if Mushroom Networks’ Broadband Bonding can be called a WAN aggregation or WAN virtualization technology, and how this new approach of combining various Internet lines into a single IP connection will affect MPLS for branch deployments. She also asked about the Internet failover reliability and the high 9s availability for enterprise WAN networks that are broadband bonding DSL, T1, cable, or any other broadband Internet connection.

Here is a snippet from my interview:

“Rising costs and movement toward the cloud have enterprises seriously considering broadband bonding to transport corporate data and even replace MPLS for branch office networks. Vendors like Mushroom Networks are offering WAN aggregation and virtualization technologies to get the highest reliability out of these unreliable WAN links.”

Mushroom Networks is the provider of SD-WAN (Software Defined WAN) and NFV solutions capable of Broadband Bonding that enables self-healing WAN networks that route around network problems such as latency, jitter and packet loss.
