Organizations with distributed international operations are migrating their regional and global WANs to MPLS IP VPNs. In doing so, they frequently find that LAN/WAN integration is needed to deliver consistent user experiences with unified communications applications, including VoIP, telepresence, texting and other collaboration tools, across their geographically diverse locations.
In this AT&T-commissioned study, Forrester Consulting looks at how fully or partially managed MPLS IP VPNs likely will dominate WAN models in multinational companies going forward. The research includes scenarios showing where it makes sense to use managed network services or outsource some or all of the WAN. It also examines North America-based multinational companiesâ€™ current and future plans for managing their networks.
