Viptela Introduces LTE-Enabled SD-WAN Routers to Accommodate Wider Range of Deployments
Viptela, the Software-Defined WAN
(SD-WAN) company, today announced the Viptela
vEdge-100, a compact new device that natively supports any transport
method including 3G/4G/LTE (News - Alert) and wireless LANs to increase resiliency and
extend the benefits of SD-WAN to smaller companies, home/remote offices,
ATMs and other sites that don't require the scalability of the company's
existing enterprise and campus vEdge models. The vEdge-100 delivers the
same business benefits as Viptela's other routers -- 50 percent lower
WAN costs, 10x more bandwidth and 5x higher cloud performance -- and is
fully integrated with the Viptela Secure Extensible Network (SEN)
platform. Like all Viptela devices, it supports zero-touch, cloud
Viptela will demonstrate the vEdge-100 and the Viptela SEN platform at
Interop (News - Alert) Las Vegas booth #336.
The Viptela vEdge-100 provides the same secure data connectivity over
any transport technology as the vEdge-1000 and 2000 router models, while
adding integrated support for 3G/4G/LTE connections and Wireless LANs.
It is designed for a wider range of deployment scenarios, including
small/home offices with wireless LANs, remote sites that rely on mobile/
cellular connections and retail/ATM branches that want to use wireless
as a backup circuit. The vEdge-100 enables enterprises to "mix and
match" private and public IP connections such as MPLS, broadband and
Ethernet and automatically determines the best WAN transport pat for
specific traffic based on policies and service levels.
"Increasing bandwidth requirements being generated by cloud, mobile and
unified communications applications are making the use of MPLS
connections cost prohibitive, especially for small/home offices, remote
sites, retail outlets and ATMs," said Ramesh Prabagaran, Vice President
of Product Management at Viptela. "The new line of vEdge-100 devices
opens up the use of SD-WAN to a wide range of new business locations
with the addition of integrated wireless capabilities. It eliminates the
complexity associated with using third-party add-ons or external modems
to deploy 3G/4G/LTE as a WAN connection. Like all our vEdge models, it
supports zero-touch deployment and is centrally managed which eliminates
need for an onsite technician to bring new sites online."
