SD-WAN Unaffected by Net Neutrality Ruling

Net Neutrality Ruling Leaves Your SD-WAN Architecture Intact.

The discussion on net neutrality has taken a turn as the FCC votes to eliminate the Open Internet Order. With this decision, internet service providers (ISPs) are allowed more power to adjust pricing and arrange internet traffic as they see fit.

According to a New York Times article, F.C.C. Repeals Net Neutrality Rules, “The agency scrapped the so-called net neutrality regulations that prohibited broadband providers from blocking websites or charging for higher-quality service or certain content. The federal government will also no longer regulate high-speed internet delivery as if it were a utility, like phone service.”

The net neutrality ruling may have a substantial impact on many consumers, but for most enterprises, utilizing SD-WAN will provide a positive outcome, ensuring the effects of the new decision go unnoticed.

SD-WAN (Software-Defined Wide Area Networking), allows organizations to get optimal performance and speed above the private line options, utilizing a lower-cost alternative for public broadband services.

A few of the benefits SD-WAN Solutions bring in the net neutrality ruling:

  • Performs at a higher quality when there is competition and multiple broadband lines available.
  • Delivers a protected connection that is independent of the transport component origins.
  • Leaves you governing your policies for traffic, not an outside provider or government.

Does your company have SD-WAN solutions in place? Many organizations are making the switch and seeing results that significantly reduce the overall expenses and operational costs. As you assess your network solutions provider strategies, decision-makers at the enterprise level should take in account carriers which specifically recognize a need for expanding their ability to focus on a start-to-finish user experience across public and private networks.

As a single source provider of technology integration and project management services, managed IT services are a direction many are migrating toward to bring SD-WAN solutions to their organization, creating the ability to meet their most complex technology needs.

Check out how Comm-Works’ Managed IT Services aligns and develops the processes you need for successful SD-WAN implementation and ensure your organization’s standards remain the same throughout the future of net neutrality.
