High Speed Broadband VPN Networks Disrupt the MPLS Market According to New White Paper from iPass
iPass finds distributed enterprises, retail and banks can benefit from highly available broadband VPN networks to support increasing cloud computing and heavier reliance on Wi-Fi networking
IRVINE, Calif., July 11, 2012– iPass Inc., (NASDAQ: IPAS) Managed Network Services (iPass MNS), a leading enterprise high speed wide area networking (WAN) platform and Wi-Fi services provider, today announced a new white paper: ‘The Next Generation Network: Why the Distributed Enterprise Should Consider Multi-circuit WAN VPN Solutions,’ that uncovers how enterprises can reduce their current annual network operational costs by up to 50 percent with evolving WAN designs that better serve the changing needs of both business and end users.
“New broadband and wide area networking technology enables business to rethink their WAN strategy – particularly as telecom services can account for 20 percent of IT budgets. Telecom spend is also under increasing pressure from the explosive growth in mobility demands via application-driven tablets and smartphones,” said Chris Linden, Vice President and General Manager of iPass MNS. “80 percent of enterprises will require a network upgrade in the next three years to serve key business requirements around increased access to cloud services, social networking, and enabling network mobility. Next generation broadband architectures achieve higher availability and deliver faster speeds at a fraction of the cost over typical MPLS networks. Regardless of network architecture philosophy, these are the attributes required to compete and scale in today’s business economy.”
There are significant challenges that network architects and IT security managers face in designing their network architecture and this white paper provides a guide to enhance cloud service performance, more effectively support business priorities and manage ever-increasing network costs. The white paper also provides detailed knowledge on the cost and service opportunities available to distributed enterprises and retail with hundreds or thousands of branch offices. Enterprises that fail to modernize their networks and take advantage of the technical options risk inadequate performance. By leveraging Broadband VPN network architectures, high-availability topologies and high speed internet access—enterprise and retail can modernize and scale their networks to accommodate both business and IT requirements and promote a dependable enterprise and user experience.
