SD-WAN vs MPLS Network Technology

In this post we take a look at two different network technologies; SD-WAN vs MPLS. Both are still widely used in networking today. There’s a lot of different opinions out there on which is better. A Software Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN for short), is certainly the latest of the two services. Whereas the history of MPLS (Multi Protocol Level Switching) dates back to the early 1990’s.

Which has the better performance for your network?
What are the connectivity requirements of each?
Which has better security?
All good questions. We have two explainer videos below to answer those questions and more.

One of the questions we get asked quite a bit is, “Will SD-WAN replace MPLS as the leading network technology?” A lot of agenda and a lot of voices and a lot of opinions on this topic. But we’re going to look into some facts. What makes an MPLS network or an SD-WAN network? What are the features that make one more compelling than the other?
