CenturyLink SD-WAN removes the burden of managing multiple access providers as it creates an overlay network decoupled from the wide area network, links and hardware. It allows you to take advantage of all available WAN connections and proactively manages traffic at the application layer so that it can dynamically choose the best available path. The solution employs centrally managed WAN edge devices in branch offices to establish secure logical connections with other branch edge devices across the physical WAN. Overall, SD-WAN is a next generation networking solution providing the opportunity to mesh and better utilize network connections, reduce costs and complexity and increase both visibility and agility.
