With The Edge Platform

VPN Load Balancing

A new and unique WAN Optimization method, our Site2Site technology improves application responsiveness between remote sites and adds a level of redundancy that surpasses all other VPN and WAN Optimization solutions.

Increased Performance

By combining multiple paths through VPN load balancing the Edge platform is able to leverage the bandwidth of each path to balance outbound sessions. This session balancing makes additional bandwidth available to the tunnels and speeds up connectivity between sites.

WAN Aggregation

Automated VPN Failover / Failback

Whether between two or more Internet or private line (or MPLS) connections the Edge platform can automatically and without any routing protocols failover all remote site connections within seconds of a network outage. This ensures that remote users stay connected and that productivity losses from a network outage are significantly minimized.

WAN Aggregation

Fully Meshed Resiliency

With multiple applied patents the Edge platform is able to provide a fully meshed VPN infrastructure which can guarantee that even in the event of two simultaneous network outages the remote office connection will remain up and active. This level of cost effective redundancy and resiliency is unique to our Site2Site technology.

Flexible Site2Site Deployments

Our Site2Site tunnels can work in either a single-multi or multi-multi mode. This means that we can achieve increased performance even if only a single site has multiple WAN connections. In either instance through the use of multiple paths, compression, and TCP optimization the Edge platform is able to increase application responsiveness and improve overall tunnel resiliency back to the main office.

Lowering Connectivity Costs

When evaluating remote access solutions a key component is cost. When compared to other solutions our Site2Site technology, used in conjunction with inexpensive broadband connections, provides the most cost effective option available today. In fact, many organizations have used our Site2Site technology to migrate from existing expensive point-to-point and frame connections to a less expensive dual broadband deployment while at the same time increasing their redundancy and network throughput.

Without The Edge Platform

Network outages lead to complete shutdown of remote offices. Sales transactions and CRM systems become completely cut off. As branch offices grow and/or new applications are deployed responsiveness slows. Users get choppy performance and must wait for screens to load.

Problems With WAN Optimization

WAN Optimization products can solve some application issues, such as decreasing the time required for downloading large files and accessing reoccurring data, however they are lacking in the ability to effectively speed up most CRM sessions which use small files and non-reoccurring data structures. Due to these limitations and their inability to provide any type of long-term network redundancy, these products typically have a longer ROI with less benefits when compared to our Site2Site solutions.

Single Link Liabilities

The two most common scenarios are the single VPN connection with no redundancy at either end, and a VPN connection where BGP is deployed at one end of the connection (typically the HQ site). The reliability issue is obvious with the first solution, however the question of cost must be added to the equation of the second. BGP provides zero effective load balancing or data compression yet costs more than a simple broadband connection. Why pay for such services when they are clearly ineffectual and costly?

Expensive MPLS Links Don't Provide A Full Solution

MPLS provides a high degree of application control across the entire network, however what about reliability? By adding a simple broadband connection to either end of an existing MPLS network our customers are able to provide instant failover for their critical applications over the broadband link in the event of a MPLS network outage.
