Education Solutions

Accelerate school connectivity with XRoads Networks patented next generation link bonding technology. The EdgeXOS platform provides detailed real-time reporting (including top web sites, top users, and top applications) so that you know exactly what is happening within your network. XRoads Networks appliances are fully CIPA compliant.

BGP Optimization: Enables the XRoads Networks appliance to fully utilize each of our educational customers network connections. Unlike standard BGP which can only use one network link at a time, with perhaps some static routes for the secondary connections, our session-bonding functionality enables our educational customers to fully utilze each of their connections at the same time and thus gain the maximum efficiency of their links.

Why The EdgeXOS?

The EdgeXOS platform provides a complete unified solution for automated bandwidth management and CIPA web content filtering (across one or multiple broadband links). With XRoads Networks your network stays up and running, even in the event of a complete network outage. Security, Shaping, Cost Effective

Dynamic Bandwidth Management (DBM)

Automatically shape network traffic so that each end user gets fair and equal access to the available bandwidth. Prevent P2P users from slowing down other users, gurantee VoIP, Citrix, and other critical applications get the bandwidth they require.

MultiWAN Web Content Filtering (MWF)

Content filtering across one or more broadband links provides the fastest and most cost effective web security possible. Fully CIPA and HIPAA compliant the EdgeXOS is able to provide a secure environment for your students and faculty alike.

Web Bonding w/Acceleration (MSA)

Provide internal users with true link bonding across two or more broadband connections in order to acces remote sites utilizing specialized caching and session splitting techniques which improves overall throughput and responsiveness.

Real-Time Network Reporting (XFlow)

Know your network through the real-time reporting provided by the XFlow Reporting Engine. This reporting includes real-time usage statistics, top applications, TOP websites accessed, and top users. Understand exactly how your network is being utilized.

Active Network Redundancy (ActiveHA)

Maintain 99.999% uptime using our network probing and deep path inspection technologies which will automatically re-route and failover traffic from one link to the other and then back again once the link has been restored.

How To Implement?

The EdgeXOS platform is typically implemented in one of two ways, either placed in "NAT Mode" in which all traffic is NAT'd between the WAN links and the LAN switch, or placed in "Bridge Mode" where the WAN1 traffic is bridged through to the LAN switch, this means that the LAN is enable to communicate directly with the WAN1 firewall/routers gateway IP address without any changes to the existing network. Any additional WAN routers would be NAT'd and/or proxy'd by the EdgeXOS appliance.

Which Products?

The EdgeXOS platform comes in two forms, a fully licensed version called the UBM series, and a solution specific version called 'aXcel'. The 'aXcel' solution is designed to be scalable and can be license upgraded and typically has a lower entry price point vs. a similar UBM solution.
