4 gains realized with hybrid networking

Instead of treating the private enterprise network and public internet separately, many organizations mix MPLS and internet services to exploit the best characteristics of each. A recent Ovum report shows that enterprise IT departments that have adopted hybrid networking realized several significant improvements.


32% improved
in network uptime


28% increase 
in application performance


28% faster
network speeds


20% savings in network
and operating costs
Hybrid networking is an important component of SD-WAN that adds measurable value, speed and efficiency to organizations, allowing them to build more resilient and secure networks, improve application performance, and connect new sites faster.
