SD-WAN is a software-defined approach to connecting sites together to form a Wide Area Network (WAN). It can support two or more internet connections from different internet providers.

The network device can monitor the performance of the various internet connections to make intelligent choices as to which circuit is used for what type of data in real time, automatically. So packet loss sensitive data such as VoIP traffic can be prioritised over other traffic to make sure you get the best quality possible for your most important data.
