FatPipe’s premise appliance or virtual appliance communicates with the orchestrator for configuration. While the maintaining centralized control and configuration, the premise appliances act as independent end points. This means that the end points have the intelligence built in to make decisions on how to use the SD-WAN overlay.
|Regional/Enterprise Data Center||
The FatPipe appliance or virtual appliance at the data center can act to bookend the FatPipe SD-WAN overlay. In addition to functioning as an end point, the data center appliance can also function as a controller for the FatPipe SD-WAN overlay. The controller and the end point can also be separated in desired.
