WAN Edge Solutions

Bring a consistent, optimized user experience all the way to the edge


What is the WAN Edge?

The infinite enterprise needs a more flexible and automated way to streamline connections to branches and provide direct access to main cloud providers. This is where investing in an intelligent WAN edge becomes vital. How will you shape your WAN edge? What does your enterprise network need to grow? Let’s take a closer look at what edge technology can do for you.

Put the Power Back in Your Hands with SD-WAN

The reality is, the network connections you have to secure are continuing to increase, the number of applications you have to support are continuing to grow, and the different devices that access your network are continuing to multiply. A big element of the WAN edge is its ability to unify all disparate elements and centralize control of the network all the way out to the branch. ExtremeCloud SD-WAN is how you bring simplicity, cost savings, and control back to your enterprise network.

WAN Edge Then vs Now

Then

  • Made up of dedicated hardware (edge routers, WAN optimization solution, security appliances)
  • Each element worked independently to process and secure its own network traffic

Now

  • Connects distributed locations (e.g., branch offices, retail stores, school buildings) to other sites as well as cloud-based applications, data, and services
  • Enables you to manage all cloud application traffic at once
  • Handles overall security and routing
  • Supports cloud connectivity
  • Enables consolidation of every element within the WAN edge
