The Surprising State of the WAN

Company research reports typically depend upon surveys of preselected customers (rather than random respondents) and lack any basis on real traffic analysis, thus making their results suspect. So when a research report is based on objective hard data, it’s worth taking notice – especially if there are surprising insights.

Aryaka’s Global POP Footprint

Aryaka’s 2017 State of the WAN is just such a report. Aryaka’s global SD-WAN is built on a multi-tenant, private network that guarantees latency, throughput, and application performance to its global customers. It also offers globally distributed network operations centers, putting it in a position to have insights into global wide-area network (WAN) traffic patterns and trends that would be difficult to obtain elsewhere.

Some of the trends that uncovered would be expected, like the overall growth of WAN traffic globally and the deployment of increasingly fast network connections around the world. In addition to these predictable trends, however, the report uncovers a few surprises.
