Silver Peak Unity Edge Connect
The Silver Peak Unity EdgeConnect provides flexible deployment models, predictable performance over any wide area network (WAN) transport, and consistent and simplified app-driven policies no matter where the application resides.
Learn how this best-in-class platform works and discover all the benefits it provides to businesses by enhancing operational efficiencies and overall user experience.
The industry’s most complete, high-performance broadband and hybrid WAN solution
Silver Peak’s Unity EdgeConnect allows businesses to significantly reduce the complexity and cost of building a WAN by leveraging broadband to connect users to applications.
This cutting-edge platform improves application performance, increases customer responsiveness, and notably cuts capital and operational expenses.
With Silver Peak EdgeConnect, your business can build a broadband-based WAN while lowering your overall monthly data spend and maximizing application performance, including the use of voice over broadband.
An overlay solution
Delivered in both physical and virtual form factors, the Unity EdgeConnect offers a virtual network overlay, so your business doesn’t have to replace existing firewalls and routers at your branch offices.
With this platform, you can switch to a broadband WAN at your own pace, either site-by-site, or through a hybrid WAN approach that takes advantage of MPLS and broadband Internet connectivity (DSL, LTE, cable, etc.)
Since the EdgeConnect is an overlay solution, connectivity decisions are made independent of carriers, avoiding time-consuming procurement and deployment delays. Likewise, connectivity can be extended, changed and moved quickly, to where and when the business demands.
Allows real-time traffic steering over any MPLS or broadband link based on business-defined policies. In cases of outages or brownouts, the DPC automatically fails over to the secondary connection in about one second. This ingenious feature allows you to:
- Prevent problems before they happen – By spotting signs of a failing path and quickly assigning traffic to a backup path.
- Reduce costs – The DPC automatically balances the traffic, therefore maximizing your WAN investment, and preventing erratic connections from affecting your network.
- Improve availability – By introducing a backup connection without wasting its bandwidth.
With a zero-touch, plug-and-play deployment model, this platform can be easily deployed at a branch office in minutes, automatically connecting with other Silver Peak platforms in other branches, the data center, or in IaaS with the likes of Microsoft Azure, Amazon and VMware’s vCloud Air.
Key features of the Unity EdgeConnect
Your precious data is secured end-to-end via 256-bit AES encrypted tunnels. Given this, no unauthorized outside traffic will be permitted to enter the branch. Also, WAN hardening adds another layer of security to your branch offices without the additional costs of deploying and maintaining dedicated firewalls.
This delivers real-time updates on the most optimal path to reach hundreds of SaaS apps, ensuring users connect to apps in the most intelligent and fastest way available.
This overcomes the adverse effects of dropped-out and out-of-order packets, that are common in MPLS and broadband Internet connections. Path conditioning offers a private-line-like performance over the public Internet.
How does the Unity EdgeConnect work?
- The Unity EdgeConnect enables consistent visibility and policy-based control of all applications whether IaaS or SaaS, or hosted at the data center.
- The solution employs business intent overlays to virtualize the WAN across different sources of connectivity at one time, delivering quality of service, performance, and priority for multiple apps based on business requirements.
- The solution employs real-time traffic-steering based on enterprise policies, to deliver an optimal user experience and application performance.
- The solution uses zero-touch provisioning that will streamline and simplify branch deployments, minimizes the time to turn up new sites and decreases configuration errors.
