Understanding SD-WAN Technology and Its Benefits
The Edgecore Wi-Fi SDW series products (SD-WAN Gateways) are capable of providing robust, secure, and adaptive network services on demand, which MPLS connections simply cannot offer. With virtualization support, Edgecore SD-WAN solutions can be programmed to understand the nature of traffic, whether it’s latency-sensitive traffic for voice and video, which needs continuous monitoring and prioritization. This requires capabilities for application recognition, traffic re-routing, load balancing, bandwidth control, and automated fail-over, all of which Edgecore SD-WAN can provide today. Various industries, including large medical centers, chain stores, and large enterprises, have already adopted the Edgecore Wi-Fi SDW series products.
In addition to the existing SDW100 and SDW101, the newly launched SDW102 series by Edgecore Wi-Fi offers an ideal Remote Site network management solution for businesses and institutions with numerous, dispersed sites requiring precise management, such as remote sites, branch offices, and chain stores.
Practical Application Scenarios
- Chain Coffee Shops: The SDW102, managed via the ecCLOUD platform, enables IT teams to remotely monitor and manage the network of all branches. Its intelligent traffic steering and adaptive WAN selection ensure the continuity of key business operations, enhancing customer experience and operational efficiency.
- Chain Supermarkets: The diverse management options and intelligent traffic steering of the SDW102 series reduce the risk of POS system interruptions. Meanwhile, its multi-tenancy functionality and QoS policies enhance the customization and efficiency of network services, reducing IT support costs.
- Enterprise Branch Offices: The SDW102 series offers an efficient networking solution for enterprise branch offices. It ensures network stability and security for employees working remotely while accessing corporate resources. By optimizing data transmission paths and providing necessary bandwidth, the SDW102 guarantees smooth operation of enterprise applications. It also simplifies network management and maintenance, thereby enhancing overall business efficiency.
The technical strengths of the SDW102 series lie in its flexibility and high configurability. Supporting wired WAN and LAN, along with optional 4G LTE Cat6, it adapts to various network environments. Remote management capabilities, flexible Hub or Spoke configuration options, and Edgecore Networks’ centralized controller collectively achieve precise traffic monitoring and management, ensuring optimal performance of applications.
