These lightboard sessions are intended to help customers understand the different capabilities that Unity EdgeConnect provides to help them build a better WAN. These lightboards are technical in nature and can be viewed independently from each other.
The traditional VPN configuration model is manual and doesn't scale. Learn how Silver Peak Unity EdgeConnect automates secure connectivity to cloud providers including AWS, Azure, Google and Oracle.
SD-WAN security is a top of mind for customers. Today's security approach is fragmented, complex and expensive. With EdgeConnect, the approach is holistic and automated based on centralized orchestration of security policies across the LAN and WAN.
The goal for enterprise IT is enabling agility and operational efficiency. A traditional router-centric model doesn't provide the best quality of experience for IT as the management and on-going operation tend to be manual and cumbersome. The centralized orchestration of business-driven policies, automation, machine learning, open API and real-time visibility optimize best experience for IT.
Learn how Silver Peak Unity EdgeConnect works and the benefits it provides to businesses by enhancing user experience and operational efficiencies. EdgeConnect provides flexible deployment models, predictable performance over any WAN transport, and simplified and consistent app-driven policies no matter where the app resides.
Poor SaaS performance and security can diminish the value of even the best apps. Silver Peak secure internet breakout and SaaS optimization features ensure optimal user experience by automatically and dynamically mapping SaaS IP addresses to branches in order to steer traffic to its destination using best path.
Discover how SaaS Optimization feature in the SD-WAN Unity EdgeConnect platform can help distributed enterprises optimize reachability and performance of SaaS apps. SaaS optimization feature provides optimal routing based on lowest latency for reaching that specific SaaS app. It is all done intelligently and dynamically without user intervention.
Deliver WAN optimization when you need it and where most required. WAN optimization (Unity Boost) is a feature embedded in the Unity EdgeConnect SD-WAN solution allowing enterprises to optimize on an app-by-app and branch-by-branch basis. All resulting in reducing cost, enhancing app performance and user experience through latency mitigation and deduplication.
Securing applications no matter where they reside is a key requirement for cloud-first enterprises. EdgeConnect orchestrates app-driven security policies based on built-in stateful firewall and simplified service chaining with cloud-based security gateways and next-generation firewall vendors.
As cloud-first enterprises embrace digital transformation, they must avoid hardware refresh, a network-centric infrastructure that is not app-aware, and glued orchestration that is not baked in the solution. Silver Peak Unity EdgeConnect enables cloud-first enterprises to accelerate transformation in the most cost-effective way.
Discover how Silver Peak EdgeConnect offers flexibility in migrating from legacy routers to SD-WAN. It can replace routers altogether, integrate with existing routers and appliances, and interoperate with legacy sites not yet SD-WAN enabled.
The Silver Peak EdgeConnect is purposefully engineered to power today's cloud-first consumption of enterprise applications. The thin branch consolidates and orchestrates the consumption of network functions like SD-WAN, BGP routing, WAN optimization, firewall while protecting current infrastructure investment.
Silver Peak EdgeConnect enables building a highly available and resilient branch architecture with its active-active cluster. No single point of failure on the LAN, WAN or appliance side. It brings the simplicity, operational efficiency and cost effectiveness of SD-WAN to the design.
Securing applications no matter where they reside is a key requirement for cloud-first enterprises. EdgeConnect has built-in stateful firewall and simplifies integration with security ecosystem partners. It enables orchestration of app-driven security policies. All leading to securing sites quickly while reducing errors, faster response to threats and automated app security.
See how Silver Peak First-packet iQ enables organizations to reach cloud-based applications, SaaS, IaaS and trusted web traffic directly to the Internet from branch offices. It intelligently identifies applications on first packet and dynamically steers traffic to its destination on an app-by-app basis.
Poor performance can diminish the value of even the best applications. Silver Peak forward error correction, tunnel bonding, integrated WAN optimization (Unity Boost), and SaaS optimization are some of the techniques used to deliver best application performance, availability and reliability experience over any transport including consumer broadband.
Service Provider Lightboard Video Series
Service providers are challenged with providing connectivity to any SaaS application quickly, E2E SLA, off-net revenues and backup cloud connect. The EdgeConnect easily enables service providers to address these challenges and offer services to customers immediately.
Unity EdgeConnectSP helps service providers create new, tiered managed SD-WAN services to increase revenues and improve service agility. Tiered overlay software services include WAN optimization-as-service, branch office routing, analytics-as-a-service and advanced SD-WAN cloud connectivity for on-net and off-net locations. Drive more annual revenue per enterprise and increase customer "stickiness".
Learn how a managed EdgeConnectSP SD-WAN solution enables service providers to offer high-performance service delivery for cloud-native applications. This managed cloud connect service extends security visibility and application SLA benefits from site-to-site to Cloud Services delivery by managing customer specific SD-WAN virtual instances in customer’s VPC for AWS, Azure or Google Compute.
Deliver on-net and off-net application-specific managed hybrid SD-WAN services with Unity EdgeConnect. Service providers can offer a SLA for a managed SD-WAN service operating in a hybrid multi-transport (MPLS, LTE and broadband) network environment, broadening managed service offerings. The Silver Peak application-aware SD-WAN overlay model automatically steers traffic to its destination based on QoS and security policies according to business intent rather than relying on complex, inflexible routing protocols.
Discover the unique capabilities and product differentiators of the Unity EdgeConnectSP SD-WAN solution. Components include: EdgeConnect physical or virtual appliances, EdgeConnect software, Unity Orchestrator which supports centralized management of EdgeConnect appliances from a service provider NOC, and multi-tenant Unity OrchestratorSP. The EdgeConnect application-aware software enables service providers to deliver a higher performance managed SD-WAN service for cloud-native applications by employing local Internet breakout for trusted SaaS traffic.
Learn how the Silver Peak Unity EdgeConnectSP solution can support the most flexible and comprehensive deployment topologies for service providers. Managed SD-WAN services for any single tenant, multi-tenant, multi-instance or multi-cloud deployment scenario. SD-WAN uses application-driven networking to optimize performance based on user-defined business priorities and policies that can support a full range of service deployments at scale. Using business intent overlays, a service provider can flexibly define the optimal service topology along with a set of policies, based on the needs of the applications. These include traffic classification, steering policy and other policies relating to resiliency, priority, performance, and security. SD-WAN deployments scale from metro to regional, national and global network topologies.
