Hybrid WAN

A WAN composed of MPLS and one or more broadband links – a hybrid WAN – is becoming more commonplace in today’s businesses. Usually the MPLS circuit, with its inherent reliability and QoS, carries WAN traffic and the public broadband link is used for Cloud plus Internet traffic and as a backup to MPLS. This configuration often has downsides, for example there is an inefficient use of bandwidth and sometimes session drop on failover.
