ExtremeRouting VPN Gateway Virtual Appliance

The VPN Gateway Virtual Appliance (VGVA) is designed to simplify VPN and GRE termination, and is a key component of Aerohive’s SD-WAN solution. As a software-based VMware-compliant solution, the VGVA provides scalable enterprise-class VPN termination for thousands of layer 2/3 VPN tunnels from remote access locations.

Reduce operational costs and Inrease Performance

Combined with the Extreme Branch Routers, dynamic path selection distributes packets across multiple connections in real-time, based on current link metrics including RTT, jitter and link utilization. More than simply providing link redundancy, it ensures traffic is passed over the most optimal path at all times. This provides a platform for dramatic cost savings where dedicated MPLS links can be swapped in favour more affordable broadband lines.

Contextualized Security and Performance Optimization

IT can easily assign forwarding policies by application, user group, client OS, client Mac address, client location, and schedules. This allows corporate headquarters’ network usage and security policies to be consistency enforced on every device, wired or wireless, regardless of their location.

Cloud-Managed Assurance, Intelligence, and Simplicity

Managed by ExtremeCloud IQ, this virtual gateway can be quickly and easily provisioned with advanced configurations, deliver granular user, device, and application reporting, and be supported from any location in minutes.
