Allows dynamic, demand-based scaling and utilisation of existing bandwidth up to 3X using pre-defined policy controls and thresholds with pay-as-you-go billing to accommodate traffic fluctuations from planned & unplanned events.
Enhanced Management
Provides granular, real-time visibility into network performance metrics, including latency, packet delivery and jitter on an end-to-end, product and site-by-site basis to help better understand network needs.
Dynamic Connections
Enables real-time provisioning of connections between data centres and cloud providers as needs evolve to better utilise network bandwidth and control operational expenses.
