The following steps describe how to use the SD-WAN feature to set up the branch FortiGate with redundant connections to the two data centers. This configuration includes the following:
- Client-side SD-WAN (intelligent load balancing based on link quality)
- A configuration template for quick deployment of branch FortiGates
- Split tunneling for Internet access from the branch office networks
The branch FortiGate configuration includes IPsec VPN, BGP, SD-WAN load balancing, and firewall policies to control access.
