SD-WAN Capabilities?

  • Hello everyone.

    This might be a dumb question, but we are considering trying out PFsense/Netgate and wanted to see how far we can go with it.

    1. First question, as we deploy more and more routers as edge devices at our clients premises, do we always have to have a static public ip or is there any other way to manage PFsense?

    2. Is there any way to have a centralized management dashboard for all of the routers in one place, or will we have to log in to each indivudual router to make changes?

    3. SD-WAN is getting more and more popular and it seems like it's just a name that aggregates some intelligent routing features together. Does PFsense have any of the features potentially offered by sd-wan capabilities? In other words, is it possible to imitate sd-wan functionality by using PFsense features to the full potential?

    Thank you!
