AT&T Business Review

AT&T SD-WAN service provides dynamic hybrid networking with a robust software-based platform that is transforming the WAN landscape. This approach combines multiple network connections using MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching), broadband internet, IPsec, and LTE to create an optimal balance of performance, security, and cost.

Transporting data over public networks has inherent security risk and fear of high latency, package loss, and jitters. Technology such as MPLS, the preferred network for enterprises, has a high cost associated and less flexibility. For the best of both worlds, a typical AT&T SD-WAN configuration uses dual MPLS links and internet providers to service remote access, interoffice mobile users.

This fully-managed premise-based service connects small, medium, or large office locations over broadband or dedicated connections with a single customer portal experience for greater visibility and agility.
