This analysis should aid in determining the ROI of adding an SD-WAN solution. Hard cost savings are the focus here; although, soft cost savings are also a large benefit of adding an SD-WAN solution. This estimate should help justify the business case for adding an SD-WAN solution and provide an estimate on the amount of return on investment a company can assume.
Cost savings are calculated using the following assumptions:
– Savings on MPLS/VPLS circuit cost
– Less hardware is required to manage branch connections
– Less IT staff is required to manage networks
Disclaimer: All estimates are rough predictions based on available research and do not represent exact circumstances. This representation does not claim to be 100% accurate, rather, is a generic estimation that can be generally applied to most situations. Cost savings vary on a case-by-case basis.
