MPLS Bandwidth for stable RDP Terminal Server Performance
Many companies use Terminal Server or Citrix widely, for good reason. When accessing a server remotely via an Internet VPN, performance can vary tremendously. In some cases, performance can degrade to a point where sessions freeze or disconnect…and who gets blamed? Over a Terminal Server RDP connection, there are multiple applications (for example video, clipboard, printer […]
What Causes Packet Loss on the Internet?
Why Packet Loss?: When faced with the typical Global Internet ping time of 300 milliseconds and 1 out of 25 packets being lost (4 per cent) an Internet VPN user with a T1 connection who might expect 10 megabytes/minute throughput on a clean local connection will find he is getting less than 10 per cent or […]
Latency Across Cloud Backbones Varies Significantly
One of the most exciting developments to happen in enterprise networking has been the rise of private backbones. Alibaba, Azure, AWS, and the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) — all can connect your SD-WAN appliances, offering lower, more predictable latency than the open Internet. We’ve already spoken about the problems of the open Internet and the […]

IT is Evolving. So Should Your WAN. Here’s Why Business has changed in the past ten years. The Cloud. Mobility. A global marketplace for even mid-size companies. Here’s what that means for your wide area network (WAN): Applications used to communicate with servers in the data center, a reality reflected in WAN engineering. MPLS-based networks […]
Why you should consider SD-WAN today?
Why you should consider SD-WAN today? Performance SD-WAN provides optimized application routing to use the most cost effective network at all times. In many cases, eliminating the need for costly MPLS networks. Network Reliability Sub-second network failover without the delay of BGP. Failover with brown-outs, before a complete failure occurs. Manageability Lower admin costs and […]
Why SD WAN?
Why SD WAN? You need to deliver excellent performance at the lowest possible cost. SD-WAN technologies provide the opportunity to combine broadband Internet with MPLS–providing the best of all worlds. Benefits include: Network Performance Use the most cost-effective network at all times. SD-WAN provides optimized application routing—often eliminating the need for costly MPLS networks Manageability […]
MPLS Service Pricing: Here’s What You Need to Know
Even with SD-WAN companies continue to purchase multi-protocol label switching (MPLS) circuits. Knowing the basics of MPLS service pricing is still essential to running a global WAN. MPLS Service Drivers Why MPLS? For some, it’s a matter of regulatory compliance; for others, it’s a matter of trust. After all, apps like RDP and voice require a predictable […]
