Cost effective alternative to MPLS

Virtual Lease Line as one of the best MPLS alternativesHoulihan Lawrence invests in Broadband Bonding – a cost-effective alternative to MPLS

Inman News reporter Teke Wiggin wrote recently about Houlihan Lawrence, a real estate brokerage firm in New York with 25 offices. Houlihan Lawrence ditched their expensive MPLS network and replaced it with Mushroom Networks’ Broadband Bonding devices which provides an excellent alternative to MPLS.

Houlihan Lawrence had previously used T-1 lines with Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS). After outfitting their 25 offices with Broadband Bonding devices as the alternative to MPLS, it’s cut its telecom costs in half, and boosted its Wide Area Network (WAN) speed by about 75 times.

In addition to the benefits of low cost and high speed, the diversified connections to multiple providers mean that branch offices “stay up without any intervention on our end” if one of the connections goes down, said Andrew Lafreniere, Houlihan Lawrence’s director of IT, in a statement.

The direct interoffice connection increases speed and reliability and also provides more protection than MPLS because MPLS still shepherds data along just one connection. Broadband bonding spreads risk among several lines.

Here is more about the story that discusses Broadband Bonding as a cost-effective alternative to MPLS.
