Typical lead time for MPLS connectivity is between 60 to 90 days. This is because of complex technical and commercial requirements.
For MPLS solutions, bandwidth is the bottleneck and for Internet based cloud connectivity. Latency is the single biggest drawback.
Most cloud connectivity solutions don’t have built-in mechanisms to accelerate cloud applications like Office365 and Salesforce.
Multi-Cloud and Hybrid Cloud are a reality in most organizations. Traditional solutions lack an effective approach for connectivity between different cloud environments.
There is a cost performance trade-off in traditional cloud connectivity solutions that use MPLS or internet. MPLS is expensive and the internet has performance issues.
