Wireless MBG features WAN fail over and hot-swappable gateway and supports layer 2-3 roaming
Edgecore Networks, a joint venture between LG-Nortel and Accton, said that it plans to launch its wired and wireless data networking offerings and services for the SMB and enterprise markets.
The company said that it launch a wireless LAN offering, 10G SFP+ Switch Solution, a converged voice offering iPECS, and service offerings. The product offerings will be joined by a new partner program designed to provide partners with growth opportunities.
According to Edgecre, the new Wireless Multi-Access Business Gateway (MBG) is designed to provide a secure wired and wireless infrastructure that will provide roaming and central management. Its wireless LAN offering combines both a gateway and wireless controller into a single unit and controls up to 150 wireless access points throughout a building.
The Wireless MBG features WAN fail over and hot-swappable gateway and supports layer 2-3 roaming, user authentication and enforcement of per-user policy. It provides centralised AP management to reduce deployment and maintenance efforts. In addition, it can be used in a stacked configuration, while allowing for centralised control of the network, Edgecore said.
The Edgecore gateway when used within the central enterprise network enables users to manage the small gateways in the regional remote offices. The gateway/controller also supports roaming for voice applications and will support wireless phones in Edgecore’s new upcoming unified communications portfolio.
Edgecore Networks is also launching a portfolio of SFP+ switches as well as a series of 1G/10G switches which have the capability to provide 10G Base-T uplinks at IEEE 100 meter distances. It is also planning to launch a portfolio of network-enabled voice offerings for environments ranging from 50 to 12,000 users.
Keith Alexis, senior vice president at Edgecore, said: “We now deliver complete SMB or enterprise-focused data and voice solutions that offer reliability, robust feature sets and affordability while delivering the inherent benefits of central management, ease of deployment and low total cost of ownership.”
