MPLS has been the kind of the go-to for a lot of large and medium size global companies out there. In the last two or three years has been a kind of evolution where companies are starting to embrace Internet little bit more and more. So the reality is, MPLS as a link, will still be there. But, once it moves beyond business and you’re trying to reach out to all your locations itself, you start to see MPLS being eroded little bit more and various options of Hybrid WAN and transport technologies being used.

Remote offices are often time expanding, reducing or even moving locations. So provisioning MPLS on the global scale is known to be very difficult. So in order to make MPLS work, the provisioning time takes very long because it requires coordination by multiple service providers.

In this emerging globalization and the digitalization that’s happening inside of a retail store, or that’s happening inside of a hospital or even a manufacturing site, a lot of that is pushing the networking team to look for the capability of being able to spin up and down services, turn things on and off in a quick manner, be able to respond to the business, be able to have connectivity where having like a fabric of connections to all your SaaS infrastructure, your back-end systems, your private cloud systems, serving that location itself.
