Take a moment to think about your business and how it operates. Is there something your business does online that it relies heavily on? For the sake of this example, let’s say it’s video conferencing. You absolutely cannot afford for your video feed to fail.
Now imagine the different links you’re using to access a WAN. The link you’re currently on was doing fine, but suddenly it goes completely offline. An SD-WAN would route your video conferencing data packets to a new link with better bandwidth. However, there are times when more than one link is suffering from latency, jitter, or packet loss
Rather than constantly rerouting data packets to new links, DMPO allows you to create a prioritization list. Since video conferencing is our priority in this example, DMPO would be set to maximize the performance of this application. Your DMPO service gives the SD-WAN a set of rules to follow, reserving a link specifically for video conferencing. So, when the SD-WAN identifies video conferencing data packets, only those data packets are sent to the good link.
As a result, you can be confident when using your high-priority applications, even if your organization is experiencing network performance issues.
