AT&T SD-WAN provides cost-efficient network redundancy for enabling business continuity
Modern businesses need a robust and flexible network architecture that enables uptime and business continuity cost-efficiently. Redundancy can provide reliability, but deploying standby circuits on traditional MPLS infrastructure - just in case the network goes down - can be expensive for any sized organization. And cost prohibitive when a company manages hundreds of globally-distributed business locations.
Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) is key to unlocking an agile and cost-effective network while giving organizations a clear path to digital transformation. It’s also key to redundancy, providing agile organizations with a highly-intelligent network traffic management solution that provides highly-secure access to mission-critical business applications. No matter the day, time, existing traffic load, or planned or unplanned outages, SD-WAN doesn’t just find a path—it finds the optimal path.
What is SD-WAN?
AT&T SD-WAN uses path selection, WAN aggregation, near real-time performance monitoring, and dynamic routing to improve network performance to dozens or even hundreds of business locations.
Organizations can define policies based on business needs and apply them across traffic types, locations, or users from a central management console in the cloud. This level of control allows for optimal delivery paths across any combination of network transport type—providing flexible deployment options and improved total cost of ownership without compromising security. In effect, AT&T SD-WAN from AT&T Business defends against “worst case scenarios” in data performance and security.

The bottom line
- SD-WAN provides redundancy by automatically rerouting network traffic around disruptions caused by heavy traffic loads and downtime.
- SD-WAN is a software-based approach to network traffic management, making it more flexible and scalable than traditional architecture.
- SD-WAN lowers last-mile networking costs by routing traffic across any network transport type—including the ubiquitous and cost-efficient internet.
