Traffic analytics is an important component of SD-WAN. It provides an ability to have visibility to the usage of a last mile, as well as additional such as information security insights. Fusion Broadband provides advanced traffic analytics (ATA) using the Illuminate platform. This is in addition to the current network performance management abilities as well as the ability to directly use wireshark to capture packets off the edge hardware.

Fusion is easily able to answer this using its advanced traffic analytics by providing full transparency to network activity for a site owner. These capabilities exceed those provided by most firewall vendors!
