How SD-WAN Can Save Your Business Big Money: A Real-World Example

The high cost of traditional MPLS lines is a major pain point for many businesses, especially those with multiple branches. But what if you could cut your monthly costs significantly by switching to SD-WAN?

Let's take a look at a real-world example:

Imagine a company with 100 branches:

  • Each branch currently uses an MPLS line with a monthly cost of $500.
  • The company's total monthly MPLS bill is $50,000 (100 branches * $500/branch).
  • By switching to SD-WAN, the company can reduce its reliance on MPLS lines by 50%.
  • This would result in a monthly savings of $25,000 ($50,000 * 50%).

That's just the tip of the iceberg. Here are some other ways SD-WAN can save you money:

  • Reduced bandwidth costs: SD-WAN can use a variety of internet connections, including low-cost broadband, to connect your branches. This can significantly reduce your overall bandwidth costs.
  • Reduced operational costs: SD-WAN is easier to manage than traditional MPLS networks, which can save you money on IT staff and training.
  • Increased network flexibility: SD-WAN can be easily scaled to accommodate changes in your business, such as new branch openings or acquisitions.

Of course, the actual savings will vary depending on your specific circumstances. But the example above shows that SD-WAN can potentially save businesses a significant amount of money.

Connectivity price reduction is one of the major drivers for SD-WAN adoption. Cybersecurity is another major driver

Price is always a factor, but like they say, you get what you pay for. Cybersecurity, super important, specially in the world we live in.

you are right.

we all know how difficult is to convince decision makers to invest in security. however if you show them that the technology saves money and provides security, then the discussion can be totally different.

Most of the security vendors are providing the inbuild sdwan feature with security products. The cost is definately matter but it must be evaluated into security factors while deciding the sdwan product for any org network. CP is the market leader in security and sdwan feature will be another advange. Your cacluction could be better if orgs are managing the inhouse infra but having the expert will cost a lot into this, so NaaS is a best option for the Organizations to minimize the cost by choosing the security and SDWAN services by the providers.

I see no mention of the potential cost of the SD-WAN solution. You need to factor this in when calculating savings.
