For the Push Activation method, the SD-WAN Edge is activated without the requirement for an office admin to click an activation link.

Some scenarios that require a Push activation include:

  • When a Service Provider outsources the physical installation of devices at a site—in most instances, just to connect cables and power. The person who installs the device may neither be an employee of the end customer nor of the Service Provider.
  • When the person at the remote site is unable to connect a laptop/tablet/ phone to the SD-WAN Edge, and therefore cannot use an email or cannot click an activation code/URL.
