Key Benefits

  • Ensure MPLS VPN service providers meet their contractual WAN service levels
  • Quickly detect site reachability problems to reduce MTTR and improve user satisfaction
  • Mitigate the risk of service interruptions caused by network maintenance
  • Eliminate finger-pointing by isolating the root cause of problems to the in-house or service provider network
  • Avoid frustrating and costly intermittent service interruptions with “rewind and replay” forensics that pinpoint the root cause
  • Analyze future needs and investments, including the viability of deploying software defined WAN (SD-WAN) solutions

Product Capabilities


  • The MPLS VPN WAN module of Route Explorer delivers a real-time view of enterprise WAN architecture, showing site-to-site paths across one or more outsourced MPLS VPN services.
