The built-in dashboard interface provides instant troubleshooting insights that can save time and provides visibility for large-scale site-to-site connectivity.
Microsoft Azure Virtual WAN allows you to enable simplified connectivity to Azure Cloud workloads and to route traffic across the Azure backbone network and beyond. Azure provides 54+ regions and multiple points of presence across the globe Azure regions serve as hubs that you can choose to connect to the branches. After the branches are connected, use the Azure cloud service through hub-to-hub connectivity. You can simplify connectivity by applying multiple Azure services including hub peering with Azure VNETs. Hubs serve as traffic gateways for the branches.
