A Changing WAN, Benchmarked

By Jayne MillerJun 29, 2020


"In previous iterations of the WAN, you might have seen one large MPLS cloud, but with core sites having a larger MPLS port than edge sites. Now we're seeing a lot more technology differentiation between core versus middle tier versus edge sites." 

A self-proclaimed "data guy," TeleGeography Senior Analyst and Data Science Manager Mike Bisaha has spent years building tools to help IT managers better understand the performance, design, and cost of their networks.

And he's learned a lot about what the modern WAN looks like in the process. 

In this week's WAN Manager Podcast, Mike steps in to explain best practices in benchmarking a wide area network against key goals.

So who benchmarks? How does this make life easier for a WAN manager? What has benchmarking taught us about networks? And how have the goals of WAN managers shifted over the last five to ten years? Listen below to learn more.
