Edgecore | December 21, 2022
Edgecore Networks, a leading provider of traditional and open network solutions for enterprises, data centers, and telecommunication service providers, today announced the launch of the SDW102 and SDW102-L, the latest addition to its SD-WAN product line—the SDW series. The SDW102 and SDW102-L are designed for chain stores, small to medium-sized enterprises, and SOHOs to address application performance issues for remote users, providing robust, secure, and adaptive network services on demand.
The pandemic has changed many things, from the way of living to the method of work. Hybrid work is now the norm in many organizations. This shift to remote work and hybrid workspace forces organizations to take a more systematic and strategic approach to connect remote workers to applications and data. To better connect employees in multiple office locations, Edgecore provides its SD-WAN solution for organizations to improve specifically on the cost-effectiveness and complexity of traditional WANs, as well as increasing business agility. Now with its new members, the SDW102 and SDW102-L, Edgecore’s SD-WAN product line becomes more complete and flexible.
The SDW102 and SDW102-L are easy to deploy and primarily aimed at small and medium-sized businesses, chain stores, and SOHOs to simplify their networks while also increasing reliability and application access. The SDW102 supports wired WAN and LAN, while the SDW102-L offers optional 4G LTE Cat. 6 with a SIM slot. The SDW102 and SDW102-L can be managed by an SD-WAN software controller, allowing users to install the controller in a data center or on a server. In addition, the SDW102 and SDW102-L can be adjusted as a hub or spoke via software. On top of traffic monitoring, Edgecore’s centralized controller can be used to set policies and prioritize traffic. The SD-WAN considers the policies and network bandwidth to route traffic accordingly, ensuring the expected application performance.
“Hybrid working is a new normal. Edgecore is active in finding the best solution for businesses with distributed workforces. Along with the launch of SDW102 and SDW102-L, Edgecore’s SD-WAN solution addresses customers of all sizes and in all verticals, The Edgecore SDW-series provides you with a simple way to embrace the beauty of SD-WAN - a plug-and-play, secure, agile, reliable mechanism to deliver enterprise-grade services to remote sites and branches.
