If you’ve been paying attention to networking industry news, you’re sure to have heard the phrase: middle-mile. So, what is the middle-mile? A middle-mile network connects users and workloads across regions, giving you on-demand site-to-site and site-to-cloud connectivity over a private cloud backbone. You get the added benefits of guaranteed SLA, consistent 24/7 uptime, and reduced operations costs via simplified management. Middle-mile adoption is on the rise with revenue attributable for cloud middle-mile networks forecasted to reach $6.58 billion from 2021 to 20251.

Cisco has been at the forefront of innovation by integrating SD-WAN with middle-mile networks and recently we’ve grown our partnership with AWS to include middle-mile network connectivity using the AWS global cloud network. Cisco SD-WAN Cloud Hub with AWS Cloud WAN is a joint solution that delivers a single-portal experience to connect multi-region cloud workloads, as well as cloud-to-on-premises workloads together, with end-to-end visibility and secure connectivity across the AWS cloud backbone.
