4 What could be a possible explanation for the broadcast storms that the protocol analyzer reports?

SAP broadcast traffic. Devices at each remote site are generating SAP broadcasts that are being propagated onto the WAN.

5 What are possible solutions to reduce the SAP traffic on the WAN links?

Implement SAP filters. Filter SAPs from devices at the remote sites so that they are not propagated onto the WAN unless necessary.
