Case Study: Remote Work and the Advantages of SD-WAN vs. MPLS


In response to the global shift toward remote work, XYZ Corporation, a multinational enterprise, faced the challenge of optimizing its network infrastructure to support a dispersed workforce. This case study explores how the company leveraged SD-WAN (Software-Defined Wide Area Networking) as a transformative solution compared to traditional MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching).

Client Background:

The client, a leading organization in their industry, operates across multiple geographical locations, with a significant portion of its workforce operating remotely. The need for secure, reliable, and scalable connectivity became paramount to ensure efficient remote work operations.

The Need for Network Optimization:

The client's existing MPLS network, while robust and secure, was constrained in its ability to adapt to the dynamic demands of remote work. Frequent latency issues, limited bandwidth, and rigid configurations hindered remote employee productivity.

Advantages of SD-WAN:

Pyrebolt conducted a thorough evaluation of SD-WAN as an alternative network solution for the confidential client. The advantages were compelling:

  • Agility: SD-WAN provided the flexibility to scale bandwidth dynamically based on user needs, ensuring consistent performance.
  • Cost Efficiency: Significant cost savings were realized compared to the expensive MPLS circuits.
  • Security: Advanced encryption and security protocols within SD-WAN ensured data protection for remote workers.
  • Enhanced User Experience: Application-aware routing improved the performance of critical applications.
  • Simplified Management: Centralized management and visibility streamlined network administration.

Implementation and Transition:

Pyrebolt collaborated closely with the client's IT team to implement the SD-WAN solution while maintaining confidentiality. The transition was seamless, with minimal disruption to operations. Remote employees experienced immediate improvements in connectivity and application performance.

Measurable Results:

The impact of adopting SD-WAN was substantial. The confidential client reported a 40% reduction in networking costs, a 30% increase in remote employee productivity, and a 25% improvement in overall network reliability. Employee satisfaction scores soared, reflecting the improved remote work experience.


The case of Pyrebolt's successful implementation of SD-WAN for the confidential client underscores the advantages of adopting modern networking solutions in the era of remote work. SD-WAN's agility, cost-efficiency, security, and enhanced user experience provided a transformative solution. This case exemplifies how innovative networking technologies are essential for businesses to thrive in an increasingly remote and digital world.
