-Towards a new WAN architecture at Mercedes-Benz BeLux - the questions we face
Mercedes-Benz BeLux is currently investigating the possibilities for their next WAN architecture. The questions they face:
- MPLS or VPN over Internet?
- fully managed end-to-end by supplier, or some responsibility delegated to the connected parties?
- QoS or just increased bandwidth?
- compression techniques like Riverbed / Ipanema / Expand: have they been investigated? tested? used?
- other services included? (Internet pass-through, web filtering, email, etc.)
