EarthLink SD-WAN: The wide area network, transformed.
Enterprise computing is making a transformational shift to the cloud. Now it's time for the network powering that shift to transform, too. EarthLink SD-WAN is a cloud-delivered network service designed to optimize performance and reliability to meet escalating customer expectations in an always-on cloud connected world.
Leveraging multiple connections found in hybrid networks, SD-WAN adds a layer of intelligence providing real-time visibility into — and control over — network and application performance. It also provides a way to break free of traditional network constraints by augmenting bandwidth with widely available, low cost broadband.
The results: Dramatically improved performance and reliability, with 100% SD-WAN service availability SLA,* and up to 100x the bandwidth at a similar or lower cost than a standard T1.
