We are constantly working to expand our platform to make your network’s connectivity even stronger and faster, and we’ve made a huge step in the right direction with our updated Edge Lite. With the same powerful capabilities as our other Edge hardware (Edge Pro), the new Edge Lite has 3 Ethernet ports instead of 2 Ethernet Ports found on the original Edge Lite to increase deployment flexibility.
Edge Lite combines SD-WAN, SD-LAN, mesh overlay, VPP, DPDK, VPN, a router, and more to create one device with the networking power of multiple tools. The Edge Lite v2 can extend a network to anywhere, enable failover to backup providers, and bring the power of the cloud to physical ports of your choice. With Edge, you can connect multiple locations and decentralized teams together into a single LAN.
The addition of a new ethernet port allows for a variety of new configurations. The ports can be setup in any combination that is desirable allowing for multi-wan configurations for failover or highavailability configurations through to physical LAN seperation for private and guest networks.
There are 3 configurations an Edge Lite typically operates in:
Edge Lite is cost-efficient so you can get started easily. It’s quick to deploy and easy to integrate. Just like our other products, it doesn’t require port forwarding, firewall rule modification, or other network configuration to start working. Simply plug it in and you’re ready to go, with full management from the cloud.
Use Edge Lite to securely access and extend your network anywhere, and get SD-WAN capabilities, fast path Networking, and Layer 2 Tunneling, all in one piece of hardware. To access your network any time, from any device, anywhere you have Internet access (yes, really, anywhere), integrate Edge Lite with Big Network Apps.
With high flexibility, easy portability, and extensive utility, the Edge Lite is suitable for a variety of use cases, but we’ve detailed a few that we think are the most notable:
