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/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 quad 1/10 Gbps Short Reach (SR) or Long Reach (LR) fiber optical ports, 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.
