Edge Transformation

EDGE TRANSFORMATION

ACS Intelligent Edge:

ACS offers a comprehensive strategy for leveraging software-defined technologies to transform the WAN. Our approach leverages highly virtualized, cloud-managed solutions that help to reduce costs, accelerate provisioning and improve operational efficiency. IT teams also gain increased visibility into application performance, along with centralized policy management and enhanced security.

BUSINESS APPLICATIONS & SERVICES

Edge computing enables many new and enhanced applications and services across a range of industries. ACS offers solutions for Industrial IoT, retail, distribution, healthcare and other use cases.

SOLUTION SUMMARY

SD-WAN

SD-WAN helps organizations lower WAN costs by reducing reliance on MPLS services while helping to maximize availability and ensure quality of service (QoS) for latency-sensitive applications. ACS offers industry-leading SD-WAN solutions with light-touch deployment, cloud-based management and end-to-end visibility into application performance. Predefined policies that control how applications are prioritized enable IT teams to optimize WAN performance and respond to changing business requirements.

NFV

As the name implies, NFV virtualizes routing, WAN acceleration, firewall and other network services, delivering them via software as opposed to dedicated appliances. ACS deploys NFV services on universal Client Premises Equipment (uCPE) running standard operating systems. This reduces capital expenses for network hardware, speeds deployment, and enables elastic scalability of network services. Centralized management simplifies administration and ensures the consistent application of policies across the environment.

PRIVATE MOBILITY

The edge is not just about compute power — it requires secure, high-bandwidth, high-performance connectivity to move data between devices and the edge data center. ACS gives users the ability to connect using virtually any access technology, including cellular, Wi-Fi, CBRS / OnGo, vRANk and LoRa. ACS also offers private LTE for highly secure connectivity when Wi-Fi isn’t an option due to distance, interference and other factors. All of ACS extended mobile access solutions feature zero trust security and location tracking
