Are your MPLS fees disrupting your IT department’s budget?
Don’t worry. We hear this a LOT.
IT execs, Networks Managers, IT Administrators, and even a few IT Support Techs all say something similar to this, “the company I work for has a corporate location and several remote sites that all connect back to corporate over MPLS lines that are crazy expensive. I need to look at a price alternative. What are my options?”
For the longest time, businesses small and large, have insisted that their WAN services be delivered exclusively on an MPLS network. Unfortunately, though MPLS has been the reliable technology for a decade, its reliability was based on accessing data from site-to-site, not remotely or through the cloud. When you add in these additional services, the costs go up.
These limitations along with its excessive cost have created a demand in the Telecom market for solutions that are lower in cost but provide high-performance.
Carrier Ethernet Service is a Corporate IT department’s preferred option due to performance, scalability, and cost. Businesses looking to reduce their MPLS costs and without sacrificing their Internet performance should consider it as a viable alternative.
7 Reasons Why Carrier Ethernet Is A Cost Reduction & Performance Enhancement Alternative:

Carrier Ethernet is a must-have option for expanding bandwidth demands in a cost-effective manner.
2. Cloud Application –
Cloud-based systems are often used by Enterprise companies to transport data. Carrier Ethernet has emerged as the preferred option to utilize with cloud computing technology.
3. Control –
IT Managers looking to gain more insight and control over their network can rely on standards from full end-to-end service level agreements (SLAs) over the entire service path that enables them to monitor their traffic from endpoint-to-endpoint.

The price for Carrier Ethernet connectivity is considerably lower than almost any WAN MPLS service, making it a desirable choice for companies seeking to cut telecom costs.
5. Low Latency –
Replace your IT Departments non-Ethernet technologies with Carrier Ethernet Services that can provide significant storage and backup capabilities, as well as low latency.
6. Transmit Data Securely –
