The Edge2WAN platform is the first traffic shaping firewall with the ability to provide faster downloads and a more reliable Internet connection by load balancing inexpensive broadband (DSL, cable, wireless) connections.
The Edge2WAN platform is an inexpensive way to improve both security and network performance. The following scenarios demonstrate what the Edge2WAN is capable of and how it might be deployed in specific customer situations.
The costs involved with an Internet outage, even for a small organization, can amount to thousands of dollars per day. Growing organizations also require a simple and cost effective method for increasing their network bandwidth, without the complexity involved with BGP or other routing protocols.
Deployment of the Edge2WAN-50 series appliance. The Edge2WAN delivers a reliable and stable multi-WAN platform. With built-in session persistence and the ability to provide both outbound and inbound load balancing using our ActiveDNS technology. The Edge2WAN also has an application level stateful inspection firewall which can be enabled to provide complete protection against Internet threats along with enterprise class web content filtering. Unique to the Edge2WAN is its Best Path Routing module which monitors SLA levels to ensure that network sessions always take the best path.
Many businesses are finding that they have several critical applications which require higher QoS (Quality of Service) over other non-critical traffic. One of these applications which is quickly growing in popularity is VoIP or Voice over the Internet. Companies are finding that VoIP must be prioritized and that they need some type of redundancy for their VoIP connectivity.
Deployment of an Edge2WAN-50 series appliance. Utilizing the Edge2WAN companies are not only able to prioritize VoIP streams, but also guarantee these streams a fixed amount of bandwidth to ensure quality voice calls even during periods of high network utilization. The Edge2WAN also provides redundancy through its built-in multi-WAN technology. In the event of a WAN failure, outbound calls will automatically be redirected over the remaining active Internet links.
For organizations with multiple offices, ensuring connectivity to those offices can become business critical. Many IPSec based solutions are extremely limited in their ability to failover in the event of a network outage. Other solutions are typically either too expensive or overly complicated for an SMB environment.
Deployment of a Edge2WAN-55 and several Edge2WAN-50 series appliances. By using our Site2Site tunneling technology organizations are able to easily configure automated VPN failover across any number of broadband connections. Customers may also choose to keep their existing private line T1/Frame Relay or MPLS link and simply use a VPN connection in the event the private link were to fail.
