Edgecore Networks | December 22, 2021
Edgecore Networks, a leading provider of traditional and open network solutions for enterprises, data centers, and telecommunication service providers, announced the launch of the Work-from-Anywhere (WFA) solution to provide organizations a plug-and-play, secure, agile, reliable mechanism to deliver enterprise-grade services to their remote workers.
The trend of making offices a place for collaboration has been going on for years, but the COVID-19 pandemic has shifted the dial. Social distancing requirements across the world have prompted thousands of companies and millions of employees to discover the benefits of a flexible work environment. This shift to remote work and hybrid workspace forces organizations to take a more systematic and strategic approach to connecting remote workers to applications and data. Traditional WAN connections over MPLS tend to be rigid, costly, and provide deployment connections that cannot easily adapt to today's dynamic networking needs. Edgecore's WFA solution includes feature-rich SD-WAN devices, the SDW-series, addressing those networking issues and provides robust, secure, adaptive network services on demand.
WFA Solution Key Features
Multiple options for central management:\
VM in x86 appliance based
VM in cloud platform
Administrator can monitor and auto-adjust remote networks with real-time feedback from premises and deploy pre-configured network paths to remote sites.

The future of work is work-from-anywhere. With Edgecore’s WFA solution, delivering an in-office experience to workers, wherever they are, isn’t a pipe dream. The flexibility and openness of the solution proactively prepares organizations for an ever-changing future.”
