How it works

AWS Cloud WAN provides a central dashboard for making connections between your branch offices, data centers, and Amazon Virtual Private Clouds (Amazon VPCs)—building a global network with only a few clicks. You use network policies to automate network management and security tasks in one location. Cloud WAN generates a complete view of your on-premises and AWS networks to help you monitor network health, security, and performance.
