Cisco envisions a future in which enterprise’s WANs are connected not by MPLS or broadband, but instead by high-speed, low-latency cellular networks, or what it calls the wireless WAN. Once relegated to failover, Cisco says today’s cellular networks, in particular 5G, offer high enough throughput and low enough latency to be viable alternatives to traditional wired networks. “About 10-years back everyone would say that my primary circuit from the enterprise branch was MPLS and then the higher bandwidth speed of having an internet circuit became a viable alternative,” said Shankar Ramachandran, director of product management, routing platform at Cisco, in an interview with SDxCentral.
