Manufacturing Solutions

Data-on-Demand is what XRoads Networks provides for your inventory control and ERP systems. Whether your operations are local or global the EdgeXOS platform keeps your customers (end-users) happy. With the EdgeXOS end-users enjoy fast, secure, and reliable network connectivity through automated network outage detection and re-routing capabilities, to the ability to balance traffic between multiple available paths for faster and more cost effective connectivity.

Many of our manufacturing customers have existing MPLS connectivity between multiple sites. The EdgeXOS platform's Site2Site MPLS failover detection module can quickly determine if the MPLS network is functioning properly and if for any reason it is not, can automatically and instantly bring up a secure backup VPN tunnel across the public Internet and then failback over when the MPLS network is reestablished.

Why The EdgeXOS?

The EdgeXOS platform provides a complete application redundancy solution for manufacturers looking to ensure uptime for their CRM, order processing, and other mission critical applications. With XRoads Networks your network stays up and running, even in the event of a complete network outage. Reliable and optimized network connectivity.

MultiWAN Optimization (S2S)

Optimized access to remote branches, remote users and the data center. Beyond WAN optimization the EdgeXOS includes the ability to bond multiple broadband links to provide additional site-to-site bandwidth, and ensure automated redundancy in the event of an link outage.

Server Load Balancing (SLB)

Balance HTTP, SSL and other forms of traffic across multiple servers to provide faster responsiveness for end-users. SLB includes full session persistence to ensure that users stay connected even across multiple site logins.

Stateful Cloud Firewall (SCF)

Protect the network from potential threats with a solution which maintains the six core areas of the Payment Card Industry (PCI) security standard.

Active Inbound Link Balancing (ActiveDNS)

Automatically balance server traffic across multiple Internet connections using weighted parameters and availability metrics.

Active Network Redundancy (ActiveHA)

Maintain uptime using our network probing and deep path inspection technologies.

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 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.
