We have a location that needs to have a backup WiMax signal in the event that our primary internet goes down.  It seems our provider is suggesting SD-WAN along with the backup line.  Is this necessary?  Is there another way to get a device that cuts over to the backup line to supply bandwidth when the primary goes down.  Or should I consider SD-WAN along with the backup line?  Any comments?
