WAN vs Metro


1) Future BW Expansion : Metro-E BW expansion is as very easy compared to adding leased circuits to the WAN.


2) Service levels : Since Metro-E is a service it has better service levels than a traditional WAN link.


3) Finally Cost: In most cases the BW cost derived per Leased Circuit to that of Metro-E Link is higher in most places.


What may make the choice of WAN more practical is the availability of WAN only and no Metro service in a area.


Plus if the customer is not at all comfortable with a shared infrastructure link like Metro-E.


HTH-Cheers,

Swaroop
