The EdgeXOS™ Series provide bandwidth management and optimiation for cloud-based services, including SaaS, VoIP, CRM, Email, etc. The 55SXV product is well suited for mid-sized offices and large branch offices looking for high availablility, additional bandwidth, and/or remote site VPN failover.
The following is a listing of specifications for the EdgeXOS 55 Series product line.
The original technology developed by XRoads Networks was WAN load balancing. When it comes to WAN load balancing, XRoads Networks is the expert. Our load balancing solutions include full session persistance, multi-level outage detection, and Best Path Routing. Each of these components are required to ensure a solid and stable load balancing system. Most standard firewall appliances which have added WAN load balancing are missing these components and are thus limited in their capabilities.
Unlike most other standard firewall appliances which have WAN load balancing, the Edge incorporates a fully functional DNS server module which allows the Edge to handle both outbound and inbound WAN load balancing. Other firewall appliances which have WAN load balancing as an add-on include the ability to sign-up for a Dynamic DNS service, which has an ongoing annual fee and does not provide the responsiveness or extended capabilities of the ActiveDNS module.
The EdgeXOS platform support the ability to accelerate web downloads substantially beyond standard link load balancing appliances. Our unique MSA technology improves download speeds and optimizes network performance. Combine a 3Mbps link and a 5Mbps to get 8Mbps of throughput performance.
The EdgeXOS includes a number of advanced traffic shaping features including: Policy-based shaping, URL and Application based prioritization and rate limiting based on source/destination IP address, network, subnet, application, protocol, and session specific string information.
Using the Site2Site tunnel technology developed by XRoads Networks two or more sites can be connected via multiple tunnels across multiple WAN links. This allows for the balancing of network traffic between multiple tunnels and thus increase performance between sites.
The Site2Site tunnel module has the ability to automatically failover between tunnels in the event of a network outage. The tunnels will automatically failback once the network connection has been restored.
A Microsoft Windows based software client which allows remote end-users to securely connect to the EdgeXOS platform using 3DES encryption and provides automated tunnel failover in the event one of the appliances WAN links were to fail.
XRoads Networks powerful and cost-effective global URL content filtering solutions include a database of millions of pre-categorized websites. Filtering can be enabled base on category or custom defined block/allow lists. Granular time of day controls and excellent reporting capabilities makes this filtering system is second to none.
A fully stateful firewall with layer-7 packet inspection. The firewall is policy-based meaning that each rule is based on objects and each object can be manipulated to create very simple or highly complex rule structures. The firewall also includes packeting logging which is very helpful for network troubleshooting.
The Edge supports bi-direction network address translation and port translation services.
The Edge platform includes supports full static routing capabilities as well as RIP and OSPF routing support.
Incorporated in to the Edge platform is a full featured packet sniffer. The packet sniffer can be used to capture complete packet information, including header and data types. Very useful for troubleshooting network related issues.
Use the built-in network monitoring system to ping internal network devices and ensure they stay up and running. The network monitor also support port probing for testing the availability of web, email, and other services.
With a wide range of capabilities the Syslog server is very useful for traffic capturing as well as obtaining bandwidth updates and system changes. Email alerts can be setup for up to 10,000 end-users with various alerts which can be enabled or disabled on a per user basis.
SLA reports can be created using the Best Path Routing module. The BPR module will automatically probe each WAN connection and provide graphical updates in terms of latency, packet loss, and calculated jitter. These reports are highly useful for determining how each WAN link is performing.
Provides a quick snap-shot of the top users and application usage on the network. Quickly see who is pushing the most traffic, and when. Identify the top applications and use that information to add/remove bandwidth shaping policies.
The Edge platforms includes full user management via the web interface. Users are automatically identified based on IP address which allows for detailed per user reporting, including reporting on top application usage per user, which is useful for identifying who is using unauthorized applications.
