Two people looking at a digital map

Path efficiency: Uses the shortest path available at the time to deliver traffic to a designated endpoint

High point-to-point performance: Provides automated, dynamic, point-to-point routing, enabling high performance and efficiency 

Predefined path option:  Allows use of a predefined path within the United States to a designated endpoint to provide predictable latency between two or more sites in the United States for consistent application performance

Failover path option: Available as a restorable or unprotected connection that can be used to define a backup (failover) path for application delivery assurance

Standard connectivity: Can standardize connectivity for dispersed offices and locations, such as in any-to-any regional networks

Routing control and security: Uses Media Access Control (MAC), or physical,  addresses for routing
