Multi-WAN Link Application Delivery Challenges

LinkProof lets you introduce back-up links to support your


business continuity strategy. Real-time health checks of all
available WAN paths ensure immediate fail-over to a functional
link in the case of service outages, so that data, applications and
web sites are available 247, without compromising the
performance of any of the applications delivered over the network.
Slide 15

Business-Oriented WAN Link & Traffic Management
