EdgeConnect XL (EC-XL) Specification Sheet

The Unity EdgeConnect™ XL is a 1U rack-mountable platform that serves to build an SD-WAN fabric using Zero Touch Provisioning. It supports MPLS, 4G/5G/ LTE, and Internet-based hybrid WAN data paths and a control plane that is automated and secured by the Unity Orchestrator™ software to provide policy-based virtual network segmentation and acceleration of on-premise and SaaS cloud applications. Key features of the EdgeConnect XL include high availability through power supply and storage redundancy, available/optional high performance PCIe-based flash network memory for application acceleration, and up to six (6) ports supporting 1/10 Gbps SFP+ or 10/25 Gbps SFP28 pluggable transceivers, making it an ideal platform for data center and large hub environments with typical WAN bandwidth from 2 to 10 Gbps. Models with additional Network Memory, as indicated by the suffix "-NM," are recommended for applications employing the Unity Boost™ WAN Optimization performance pack.
